Good places for islands include the center of a kitchen or to enclose an open floor plan kitchen in an L shape formation.
Fresh and clean in a white finish with a wood butcher-block top, the Meryland Kitchen Cart ($459) has a towel holder and spice rack on one side, plus drawers, cabinets and shelves to hold all the essentials.
A perimeter island, for example, might work better with open floor plans. Size and shape are also determined by room’s layout; Allow for at least 36-48 inches between the perimeter of the island and the surrounding cabinets so there’s enough room for people to move around.
