Clever Islands

Contrasting Counters

Dual-Level Kitchen Island with Granite and Wood Countertops
Courtesy of Westborough Design Center, Inc.

"The new owners of this early 19th-century home set in a historic district west of Boston wanted nothing short of a transformation. A number of small rooms were opened to create the new kitchen, which combines cutting-edge design with a celebration of the elegance and style of the home's Federal period history. A dual-level island with complementary wood and granite tops separates work and gathering areas while also giving the deep island more dimension.

 

"The wood top of the eating area was custom made to match the cabinetry color, creating a nice balance in color. In addition to seating for four, storage on the sides and back of the upper level increase its function. The lower level features a granite top, as well as a dishwasher, built-in trash unit and a tray base divider on the far end near the range for easy access while cooking."
