Take advantage of being able to use the space above the island by adding suspended storage, where you can display a matching pan collection or your best stemware. You can also experiment with lighting elements, or if you’ve decided to install a stovetop with overhead venting you can use the space for the range hood.
Find a space where a simple butcher block ledge can serve as a kitchen island. If a ledge isn’t possible, create an enclosure with a minimalist island design. Take inspiration from these two kitchens:
The top of the Catskill Craftsmen drop-leaf cart ($410) doubles in width to 40 inches when both of the drop leaves are up, to expand your counter space or serve as the perfect spot for breakfast for two. Locking casters keep the small kitchen island in place until you’re ready to wheel it elsewhere. A drawer and a two-door cabinet offer extra storage in space-challenged kitchens.
For the most use, select one that has a towel bar for hooks and textiles and open shelving below. Locking wheels are helpful if you plan on moving your island often, although restaurant grade work tables are often lightweight enough to move without needing wheels.
