Kitchen islands have become an important part of every kitchen remodel. Otherwise, maybe a drop-leaf island will do just fine. Another design choice is to integrate a distinctive use of materials such as shiplap, tiling, or a bold countertop. If you would like to renovate your kitchen, there’s a variety of considerations you should make before settling upon a particular kitchen design. For instance, if you have cabinets made from wood you’ll be able to use shelves painted in some bright color.
