Kitchen Islands In TidalWalk


Long gone are the days when kitchens were just meant for cooking. Nowadays families use kitchens as the gathering spot for catching-up, doing homework, and even entertaining.

The builders at TidalWalk are experts in creating kitchen designs that families desire. The pictures are just a small taste of the TidalWalk Builder talents! They can help you determine which materials, for your home and your kitchen, best fit your family. And what many families want now…is an expansive kitchen island.


The focal point has now shifted to the ever-popular center island. The hub of the kitchen! The great island is perfect for food preparation, but also for dining. In many households, it has essentially replaced the everyday kitchen table. Islands typically have enough overhang for chairs or stools.

It is also the ideal spot to prepare a meal in a social and spacious manner. The chef in the family is no longer isolated in the kitchen, but is now part of the conversation.


When determining how to design a kitchen, the main question now becomes, where will we position the island and will it be granite, marble, or butcher block.  Be sure to keep in mind how you will be using the kitchen surface, and your sense of style, to best choose the materials. And there is a large selection:

  • Granite countertops are available in a variety of colors.
  • Stainless steel comes in a number of finishes and textures, including a brushed finish or reverse hammered surface.
  • Corian and solid-surface countertops are some of the most durable surfaces available on the market.
  • Laminate countertops are made from layers of plastic that are bonded to particleboard and is an economical choice.
  • Glass, (butcher block) wood, and ceramic tiles are popular countertop styles.
