Incorporating sinks or stovetops into the surface of the island is one way to spread the workflow throughout the kitchen. Installation can be tricky, so pay attention to details like ventilation and plumbing. This will require running downward (most common in islands) or overhead venting (which can be expensive), and allocating extra space to in-cabinet pipes.
A tall dining table in the right proportion can be the perfect island for dining, prep and counter space. Add hooks to the side for extra storage.
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.
Whether your space lacks a proper dining table or you’re looking to create a more casual bar-seating option, adding low-profile seating to the island is an easy way to increase functionality and make the environment more social for both guests and the cook. Create a breakfast bar or dining table, and leave a counter overhang that offers enough room to tuck the chairs or stools underneath when not in use.
