Custom Home Kitchen Design Ideas: Islands That Inspire

Kitchens are the natural gathering space of the home. Every family has a different kitchen design personality, which is why our customers love the opportunity to design their own kitchen any way they want.

One of the most popular kitchen design elements for busy families is the island.

But kitchen islands are much more than a home design trend. An island is command central: the perfect place for quick breakfasts, afterschool homework, potlucks, browsing through recipe books, and even a late night bowl of ice cream after the kids have gone to bed. Islands have become an almost essential part of custom home kitchen design. At Wayne Homes you can turn your kitchen island into anything you want.

Here are just a few ideas from homes we’ve built:

Seating Galore

McAllister Custom

Today kitchen islands can accommodate as much seating as your dining room table, like this island that was recently built for a customer who chose our McAllister plan. From impromptu family meetings to casual entertaining, this deluxe island means that no one is ever left out.

Storage A-Plenty

Seating, sink, or storage? Why not all three? A custom kitchen island like this one in our Winchester plan has plenty of storage for everything from holiday silver to occasional-use appliances. Add a sink to your island to make it easy to carry on conversations (and even get some extra help) during meal prep.

Slim Down

Not crazy about the idea of an island taking up so much space? You can still get all of the benefits of additional counter space and storage with a slimmer kitchen island that allows more room to roam. This one is perfectly situated within easy reach of the dual oven and refrigerator.
