More kitchen details. This stage of a project always feels a bit never-ending, so many rather small things to finish. None of which impact the actual function, so we put them off for ages. Finishing the back of the island is one of these things. We never got around to it the first time and I’m determined not to let that happen again. Here are some of the ideas I’m working with.
I have no idea what’s on the photo above, but I kind of like it. Some sort of aluminum grating I think. I also love the wood paneling look of this island below. Although without the lovely wooden built-ins to go with, I think it may look out of place in our space.
Modified board and batten is what we’ll likely end up with, as it’s both simple to install and cost-effective. Similar to this.
I saw an island recently that looked as though they’d just painted cheap frames to match. If we can figure out how to conceal the seam in the center of the island, that might work too. Oh details, fun to think about, annoying to implement.
