Today’s islands can feature seating, cooking units, the sink, retractable venting and a host of other options to ramp up the functionality of the kitchen. Most of all, a modern kitchen island is very stylish and made from the latest materials that are beautiful, durable and easy to care for — no matter what the decor style.
Nowadays freestanding cabinets are so rarely seen in kitchens that when they do appear they look unusual, unnatural and intriguing. There was a time, however, when everything in the kitchen was free and movable and that included both appliances and furniture, the only exception being the sink. In the 1940s, however, came a period when freestanding kitchen cabinets were considered highly impractical and out of fashion and when the style we now consider conventional was favored. Right now we’re seeing a comeback of freestanding cabinetry and we’re rediscovering all the things that made them so appealing in the first place.
You can’t have a kitchen without a skin, but that doesn’t mean you are limited to porcelain or stainless steel. It’s a far wider field of options these days and many are exceptionally modern and stylish, like this one from Scavolini. Actually, the material here is a textured porcelain surface that is easy care, and does not resemble traditional porcelain in the least.
