Remodeling Your Kitchen Island
Your kitchen island should be both functional and stylish. Integrate your appliances on one side to keep them tucked out of the way. On the other side, add an eating area, so hanging out in the kitchen for quick or casual meals is a must.
Use your kitchen island for functional storage. Hide away trash cans, pots, and pans, or kitchen appliances you don’t use every day. If you have pets, incorporate their food bowls on your island.
Your island is also an ideal location for a statement. Bold colors, interesting shapes, or unique counters will make your island feel like an intentional design element.
Clean white cabinets will also be in style. But if you’re not a fan of neutrals, you’re in luck. Bright cabinets are trending.
A few coats of paint are all that stand between you and a kitchen refresh. Colors like cool mint, dusty blue, and sunshine yellow are popular choices.
Colored cabinets can brighten up your space and show your personality. Both bold and muted colors will make a big impact on your kitchen. Don’t forget to get new hardware that compliments your new shade.
A Serving Window

Not only does this make indoor-outdoor entertaining a breeze, but it also bathes your kitchen in natural light.
A serving window will add extra storage space for all those plates of appetizers. Style it as a bar with stools on the outside for laid back feel. Connecting the indoors and outdoors is a must in an entertainer’s kitchen.
Backsplashes have gotten a little boring, don’t you think. Why not have some fun a choose a tile with a bold print or fun color. It’ll add some life to your kitchen.
If you want to keep it neutral, it still doesn’t have to be boring. Try a fresh pattern like a basketweave, herringbone, or diagonal running board. How about different shapes that add a pop?
If you’re adventurous, incorporate both. A bright blue backsplash in a classic herringbone pattern will add a unique interest that makes your kitchen fun.

Kind of Unfinished
