On the House with Mark Molthan: Island Living

During this holiday weekend (and others to come), host your favorite guests around an eye-catching kitchen island. “Today, families entertain around a large kitchen island just as much as they do in the dining room,” Mark says. It’s the perfect—and more casual—place to watch the chef prep a meal, form a buffet line, or visit over drinks and appetizers.

When it comes to your island, the bigger the better. This 10-by-6-foot island features a clean, waterfall-style countertop finish.

And for today’s kitchen island, it’s all about substantial size and style. Homeowners can choose from a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials for their island, creating a unique look that stands out from the rest of their kitchen. “From different wood species and countertop materials to finishes and cabinetry designs, do something different and unique,” recommends Mark. “Your island is one of the focal points of your kitchen and it should draw some attention.”

The dream kitchen for the chef and entertaining guru includes two kitchen islands—one for prepping culinary creations and the other for creating conversation.
