Whether you are a skilled cook or a take-out queen, the hub of the home is most definitely the kitchen. What once was the least formal space in the house has now become one of the most skillfully decorated. Kitchen design is very personal, but I think it is safe to say that the island is typically where all the congregating happens. If you have a house full of kids/their friends/your friends like we do, you know that the bigger the island the better! Check out these super size islands featured in Chicago Home + Garden.
