We shall use this specific island as an example of how you can design and create your own island in your own kitchen. 

1. Kitchen Island Ideas- Brainstorm What You Need 

Before you begin creating your island, you need to consider what you will use it for. Will it provide you with extra storage space? Is it an area dedicated to seating?

Once you have come to a conclusion on what you will be using your island for, you will be able to have a clear idea of the cabinets you shall require. 

2. Choose Your Island Units 

Once you have decide on the cabinets you need, you can begin to build your Island and add these to your online basket.

As you can see in the image, the front of the island is made up of three units. Two triple drawer cupboards and one single drawer, double door unit. 

The same units are used on the front of the island, as you can see in the image, and the back too. Therefore, the island is made up of six cabinets in total.

3. Finishing Touches 

Next, it is time to add the small finishing touches. First choose if you would like the sides of your island to be 'plain' or if you would like a 'grooved' design. These end panels will create a finished look to your cabinets. 

Next, add the skirting to go along the bottom of the cupboards.

4. Choose Work Surface

Finally, all you have to do is pick your kitchen work surface. Think carefully about which material you shall choose for this. We recommend you pick a durable material so that it will be able to handle years of use. As well, think about which colour and style will match the colour you will choose for your cabinets. This will greatly affect you decision. 


And within four steps you have created a kitchen island. It is really that simple!
