Contemporary in a striking espresso finish and a butcher-block top, the Mali Kitchen Cart ($265) is a good, small kitchen island when extra storage and counter space are needed. One of the open shelves is removable to accommodate taller items or kitchen gadgets.
What makes Linon’s Bamboo Work Island ($215) unique is its inlaid-granite top. Granite is low maintenance, modern and ideal for bakers who need a cool surface area to work on. A variety of storage options — drawer, basket, shelf, wine rack and towel hooks — offer places for everything a cook needs on hand, and rubber casters let you roll it wherever you need it the most.
In addition to creating more counter space, an island is also a way to add more storage and avoid kitchen clutter by using drawers, cupboards and shelves. This is beneficial especially if appliances take up a lot of cabinet room, or if you’re looking for a unique way to showcase certain items by using open shelving. Store dishes and pots within reach or keep less frequently used appliances out of the way. Another option is to use open shelving to display cookbooks or other items.
A good general rule for enclosed kitchens is to place it in the center of the room. That way it’s equally accessible from all sides and won’t be an obstacle for people walking through. That placement might not work best for all kitchens, however.
