A kitchen island is an excellent way to create some division between your kitchen and dining areas without closing off your kitchen. This interior design idea works great for both eat-in kitchens and kitchens that are open to a living space. You will extend your kitchen and gain extra storage and countertop space too. Extend the countertop on the room side and add some seating to make it an inviting and fun addition to your home.
When we think about usable space, we tend to focus on floor space. However, if the ceilings are not too low – think vertical and take advantage of available wall space for storage. Try a well-placed bookshelf or a group of staggered open shelves on the wall. Mix in a few decorative objects to make it an interesting as well useful addition to your living room.
Over the past year, shelf styling has taken over our Instagram feeds. In fact, just a cursory search for the term #shelfie fetches over 1.5 million posts. If you would like to jump on the shelfie trend, we recommend going for display units and other storage furnishings that feature an open shelving design. This is a great way to show off all your favourite knick-knacks while also bringing colour, personality, and life into the living room. To get that Pinterest-perfect look, arrange your items by height or colour. It’s also a good idea to take inspiration from the rooms colour palette so that your display ties in nicely with the overall look of the space.
