White subway tile is finished with a white marble countertop for a sleek, contemporary walk up counter. A chalkboard menu is easily viewed against the bright, white surroundings. Three pendant lights give a warm glow above the counter. The clean, organized kitchen features stainless steel surfaces and tied up door beads for added style.
In a compact kitchen, a narrow, wheeled cart can be a space-savvy alternative to a traditional built-in island. “This custom-made walnut and stainless steel kitchen island was designed to save space and provide flexibility in the kitchen,” say designers Roy and Jen Leone. “The countertop is character-grade walnut butcher block ordered online, while the stainless steel base was fabricated by a local shop in Brooklyn. The island design allows stools to tuck under and out of the way when not in use or during a party. Also, the entire island can be rolled and then locked into place with locking casters.”
