The Elmwood Kitchen Cart by Altra ($349) is a modern and beautiful kitchen island. The industrial-chic cart has multiple shelves, including racks for 12 bottles of wine, in a cool-toned rustic oak finish to hold whatever you need stylishly. It also has wheels so you can use it as a bar cart or anywhere you need a little extra storage.
Take advantage of being able to use the space above the island by adding suspended storage, where you can display a matching pan collection or your best stemware. You can also experiment with lighting elements, or if you’ve decided to install a stovetop with overhead venting you can use the space for the range hood.
If you find a good kitchen counter that is missing an overhang or open side, you can always add a larger, new top to your find. Make sure the new top is large enough to allow at least a 6” ledge on one side and that the new top is durable enough to withstand kitchen use.
Create contrast by using a different material or color for the island counters than you did in the rest of the room. If your regular countertops are white quartz, try black or a dark stained wood for the island.
