Clever Islands

Three Functions

Tile Countertop with Hammered Copper Sink

"This multi-layered island incorporates a tile section, a butcher block section and a granite section. There are different surfaces for the different types of activities happening on the island: cooking, prepping and living. The sink area is tile, which is a really great surface for the wet area, and its beautiful texture adds an interesting element to the room. A pullout trash and hammered copper sink finish the area."

"The butcher block area is a useful place for chopping, making meals and sandwiches, and everyday meal prep. There's a pullout beneath that lets you scrape refuse into a compost bin while you're cutting veggies and such. Bowls and cooking elements are stored here as well.

 

"The granite section makes for a nice spot to sit around. It's a durable surface for the kids to do homework, it's a dry area for prep and baking, and the bookcase beneath allows for decorative storage. Its lowered height facilitates rolling out piecrusts and chopping. The island is finished with white beadboard, adding another interesting texture to the design."
