Simply secure a solid surface to the top of a repurposed item, and turn drawers or cabinets into storage spots for kitchen items. The modern kitchen island often includes features that suit this particular style of kitchen, like a flat cooktop or a designated food preparation area.
Antique decorating elements should never be overdone and the same goes for a kitchen island design. Choose a piece that inhabits a few of your favorite antique elements without looking like something that is better off staying in the past. Whether it's a piece that's been sitting in the garage for years or a recent antiques-market find, retrofitting an antique piece into a hard-working kitchen island can actually be a cost-efficient way to increase countertop, storage and display space.
Complement your vintage kitchen island with a variety of textured surfaces, like an exposed-brick backsplash or brick-pattern floors. Colorful retro appliances are also back in vogue—such as 50s-inspired refrigerators available in a wide range of shades from pastel green to cherry red and buttercup yellow.
