These carts have at least one side on wheels with storage space under the countertop. Some have drawers and cabinet space underneath. This type of kitchen island is practical and ideal for a kitchen area that is smaller but needs the additional counter space. It can easily be pushed to the side during entertainment or if table space is needed. This style won’t break the bank and is something that you can add to your kitchen this weekend.
Many timber home owners are finding that when it comes to designing ample kitchen space, one island simply isn't enough. Dual islands with designated work zones and specialized storage areas are cropping up more and more, giving the kitchen ample surface space for multiple chefs to perform their culinary magic.
The trend nowadays is to have a portion of the island become prep area and a portion of the island dedicated to seating, if you have the space.
Kitchen islands serve a number of purposes. In addition to being a visual anchor in the space, they also help increase the room’s functionality and efficiency.
Now more than ever before, folks are entertaining at home, and most of that takes place—you guessed it—around the kitchen island. And island design has followed suit. Home owners are requesting longer, leaner islands with room to seat as many as eight or more, as well as more space around the perimeter to help accommodate a crowd.
There are many different ways you can approach this decision, and since an island takes up a significant amount of floor space it’s worth it to take time to make every element of its design intentional.
