Kitchen Islands

Storage, counter space, seating, prep station -- a kitchen island can be all these things and more. These versatile kitchen island ideas can be modified to suit your needs. Are you a baker? Choose kitchen islands and carts that can be outfitted with bins for your supplies and include countertops conducive to rolling dough. Is storage your main kitchen concern? Then select a kitchen island design with deep drawers and slide-out shelving that transforms dead space into usable storage. Because of its usual location in the center of the kitchen, the island becomes a natural focal point. It makes sense, then, to choose an island that accentuates your kitchen's decor. Kitchen islands with cabinets to match your kitchen design are always a safe choice. Add a high-low countertop to distinguish the eating area from kitchen countertop space. Or position the sink or cooktop on the island to create a stand-alone workstation. Another option is to think outside the box by considering a freestanding island, such as an antique table or a restaurant-grade cart. Consider the size and layout of your kitchen when determining the dimensions of your island. Even small kitchen islands can add function and additional storage.
