Eat-In Kitchens: 10 Large Table-Style Islands

The term “eat-in kitchen” usually refers to a table in the kitchen, but it takes on a new meaning when a large island serves as the table.  This look has been growing in popularity because of how multi-functional it is and how much space it can save in the kitchen. Large table-style islands have a wonderful visual impact, too. They can be the focal point of your kitchen with beautiful lighting overhead, stylish chairs, and chic accents. Some table-style islands even embrace their multi-purpose function and have a very “table style” look with four legs and all.

Here are some great examples of table-style islands to give you plenty of inspiration.
