Create Your Dream Kitchen Island

Two Tone Kitchen

Kitchen islands are a great asset to the home and are remarkably versatile. From introducing seating to adding appliances, there are various ways to personalise your island to enhance your space and elevate your lifestyle.

A kitchen island is ideal for guests and hosts as it creates a focal point around which friends and family can gather, keeping visitors out of your path while making them feel welcome and relaxed. Whether you have guests, live alone or need a breakfast bar that elevates your morning, we are here to help create an island that works for you!

To help you find inspiration and discover your perfect kitchen island, we’ve put together a collection of some of our favourite CKD kitchen projects featuring extraordinary islands that we know you will love and take inspiration from while creating your dream space.

Somewhere To Embrace Cooking

Black & White Kitchen

If you’ve spent hours in the kitchen, you know how important it is to have the right cooking space. We believe that the island should be more than just a place to store your

appliances—it should be a functional part of your kitchen.

Islands with additional storage, offering ample worktop space, and enhancing your layout are key to transforming functionality when it comes to cooking and preparing food. Including a hob on your kitchen island can make all the difference when there’s more than one chef in

the kitchen!

An Island For Entertaining

Greys Kitchen

This kitchen island is designed to entertain, it's ready to wow guests and make them feel comfortable. You'll want it to be open and inviting with a modern feel. If you're looking for

a design that really stands out, you might want to consider adding some colour to your island emphasising your home environment and adding a touch of character to your


An Island For Dining

Dark Kitchen

Dining islands are ideal for maximising space, allowing you to introduce a cohesive and generously sized tabletop which accommodates a more conventional layout of dining.

As well as making a striking feature, it’s a fantastic communal way to enjoy a more laidback lunch, evening drinks or a sophisticated meal.

A dining island can make an eye-catching and practical solution to creating a kitchen diner in a compact space, the perfect solution for those of you who love to wine and dine.

A Peninsular Perfect For Couples


If you haven’t got room for a conventional kitchen island, a peninsular could be the perfect compromise. In a small kitchen, a peninsular island provides ample space.

A typical peninsular will offer seating for up to three guests allowing space to be utilised for appliances, storage and an open-plan seamless kitchen.

A peninsular also provides an equally wonderful opportunity to create a cosy spot for enjoying a light lunch or a cup of coffee. This chic wood breakfast bar and boho stools complete an eco-modern kitchen that we at CKD love.
