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.
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.
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.
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.
