Kitchen island designs for every style

Choose from Shaker, Modern or Handleless cabinetry for your island

Shaker islands

Featuring panelled doors framing a recessed centre panel, Shaker-style cabinets create a traditional yet timeless look that pairs well with rustic elements and refined natural features.

Handleless islands

With a choice of our true handleless designs or the popular integrated J-pull handles, our Handleless kitchen units bring a sleek, ultra-modern look to any kitchen space.

Modern islands

Characterised by flat, slab-fronted cabinet doors, our Modern style kitchens offer seamless versatility, style and clean, uninterrupted lines to offer a subtle yet effective aesthetic.

What's your kitchen island colour?

From calming neutrals to vivacious bold shades, we offer an extensive range of carefully curated colours for your kitchen island - whatever your style.

Grey kitchen islands

Versatile, stylish and clean, grey kitchen islands are a firm favourite due to their endless adaptability and minimalist look.

Blue kitchen islands

From classic midnight blues to more subtle hues, blue kitchen islands expertly add a pop of colour to any style.

White kitchen islands

The all-white look is a classic aesthetic that works well for kitchen islands, bringing an effortless sense of style.

Green kitchen islands

Emerald, sage or mint, a green kitchen island provides a perfect way to showcase your bold, confident style.

Cream kitchen islands

A cream kitchen island can be paired with bolder colours in a two-tone design or as a central hub in an all-cream design.

Wood kitchen islands

A solid wood or wood-effect finish can create a modern farmhouse look or a natural Scandi feel that pairs perfectly with a range of styles.

Kitchen islands with storage

Whether you're a baking buff or a culinary connoisseur, storage is an essential element of your kitchen plan - especially if you're working with a more compact space. Smart storage solutions can be incorporated in your kitchen island design to create a concealed yet accessible place for all of your sieves and spatulas. 

Make use of every inch of your island cupboards with space-saving pull-out larders, stylish wine storage, hidden charging ports and even moving lifts for your small appliances. Combine these with cleverly organised drawer storage to house your smaller items and voilà! Storage heaven.

Kitchen islands with seating

If you're working with a more compact space or a galley kitchen, a larger island may be out of the question - but there's always room for a smaller island if you're clever with your layout. 

For a smaller square-shaped kitchen, a kitchen peninsula may be the most suitable solution. It can offer additional storage or seating and add that valuable element of sociability to mold your kitchen into a modern, multifunctional space. 

Alternatively, you could opt for smart integrations with pull-out worktops, corner cupboard storage and built-in appliances to make the most out of your bijoux kitchen.
