34 Stylish L-Shaped Kitchen With Island Ideas

White L-Shaped Kitchen with Island

An L-Shaped kitchen with an island is the perfect blank canvas to create your dream space. While you may not be able to change the shape of your kitchen, you can use different color cabinets, countertops, and islands to bring your vision to life.

Add seating to your island and paint it an accent color that pops against white cabinetry for a functional space. Try mimicking the flow of your kitchen with an L-shaped island that provides even more space and seating (we love #23 on our list below).
