This first kitchen is by Erica Powell of Urban Grace Interiors and is part of a feature in the online magazine Trad Home. I like her use of two islands. Like the Trad Home article states, the idea is often met with resistance but it works great in narrow spaces.
This second kitchen is by Taylor Hannah Architect and is featured in an article in Traditional Home. Functionality was very import for this renovation and the two islands gives the homeowner better organization and easy movement within the kitchen.
If you think your kitchen is too small for two islands, you might be surprised. It’s easier to imagine once a design has been laid out for you and the storage options are planned for your precise needs.
