If you’re starved for counter space in your small kitchen, have you considered adding a small kitchen island? It may seem counterproductive to add an island to an already-small kitchen, but there is a great selection of kitchen islands designed for small spaces.
A smart way to add extra counter space to a kitchen involves the drop leaf. Pop it up when needed and drop down for ease of movement in a small kitchen.
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.
Visit a restaurant supply store and pick up an industrial, commercial stainless work table. They’re lightweight yet sturdy, durable in stainless steel, come in a variety of sizes as narrow as 16” and are fairly inexpensive.
Keep it simple while adding value by using an island to significantly increase the amount of counter space in your kitchen. Having more counter space adds obvious benefits: more room for meal prep, multiple chefs and can serve as an eating area.
We’ve put together a list of 10 small kitchen islands — also called kitchen utility tables, rolling butcher blocks and kitchen carts. They’re affordable, sturdy and versatile, and they made our list because:
If you find that your kitchen doesn’t have the space for a permanent island, choose an island that can be rolled, tucked away or moved to another area as needed.
