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.
While the standard aisle width guideline of 36” allows two people to pass, you could have a clearance as small as 32” if the spot is not high traffic. Take newspaper or painter’s tape and plan a floor outline of where you’d like your island to sit with proper clearance. Test your floor plan and adjust accordingly.
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.
