Modern kitchen design is multifunctional. Contemporary kitchen islands serve more than a single purpose becoming the center of a kitchen with cooking, entertaining, and dining areas. Lushome shares a collection of modern kitchen ideas beautifully integrating high countertop seating areas with bar chairs into island designs. The attractive, custom-built kitchen islands offer fabulous solutions for multifunctional and modern interior design.

A bar table integrated into a kitchen island increases work surfaces and add a contemporary vibe to kitchen interiors. Also, bar furniture and raised above an island base countertops are ideal, space-saving solutions for medium-size and small kitchen interiors. The high countertop breaks the monotony of a large kitchen island surface and allows adding a different material, like wood, glass or stone, that creates visual interest and stylishly accentuates the contemporary kitchen design.

An integrated bar table is higher that a kitchen island base and requires bar chairs, which are another way to spruce up modern kitchen interiors. Bar chairs and stools provide seats but, also, add color, texture, and contemporary design to kitchen decorating while giving modern interiors a unique character.
