Sofa tables are designed to be narrow enough to sit behind a sofa or in an entry way. Available in a variety of sizes and styles and normally around 30” high, they make a good kitchen island option.
Add another dynamic by creating variation in the height of your island. Using the island for multiple purposes, like eating and food prep, will both maximize the utility and make it feel like two totally different spaces. For example, add an appliance to one level (like a sink or stovetop) and create a breakfast bar on a higher tier.
Stainless steel food-prep tables, such as this one by Apex ($109), are the perfect solution for a small kitchen area. The 30-by-18-inch size is pictured, but this table comes in a variety of sizes as small as 24 by 12 inches. For extra versatility, add the optional rolling casters if you think you’ll be moving it around.
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.
