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.
Think of the word "rustic" and it's hard not to envision a gorgeous woodland with sprawling trees and vibrant nature. The same goes for a rustic kitchen island – while the design is often simplistic, the end result is a beautiful and functional piece.
A well-worn look is part of the antique kitchen island's charm, so embrace its imperfections. Drawers difficult to open? Install accessories like towel bars on the side to increase its functionality, or add a weathered-looking shelf to the bottom of a table for additional storage space.
