It’s called a kitchen island, but we didn’t think anyone would take the name so seriously. Luckily for us, someone did, and the results are absolutely gorgeous.
This kitchen island, where the countertop is an actual island on top of a huge saltwater fish tank, is a gorgeous combination of centerpiece, workspace, cabinets, cooking ability, and fish tank.
The beautiful glass tank can house little fishes from oceans all over the world. And yes, since we know you’re wondering -- you can totally keep your dinner in there. Coral, salt-water fish, even shrimp and lobsters can thrive in this innovative tank.
But the real innovation comes from the trick in the machinery, which helps keep the tank clean and lets homeowners access the pipes and hoses for the sink and burners on top of the counter. A button lifts the countertop off of the tank, making it easy to reach inside to feed your pets (until you decide it’s time for them to feed you).
