Stone Kitchen Island Project for DIY Beginners

Stone Kitchen Island Project for DIY Beginners

Islands are the backbone of most modern kitchens. Not only do they provide additional space for food preparation and cleanup, islands also act as the focal point of the room - a central space for friends and family to gather, eat, work or just relax and watch the chef on duty.

The kitchen in Megan's Vermont log cabin home needed one final element to achieve the desired look, but she wanted to get it done without too much fuss or expense. Siding the island with Wellington Dry Stack panels in Earth proved to be the right move, adding beautiful stone texture to contrast with the wood cabinets and log walls.

"The faux stone perfectly compliments the wood in my log cabin. I am a beginning DIYer and this only took a few hours to install, I would HIGHLY recommend this product to all skill levels."

While the panels are impressive in looks, their high-density polyurethane material is super sturdy, keeping your island free from scuffs and scratches. Also very easy to clean, food or liquid spills can be wiped off with a damp cloth.
