This countertop is used primarily for food preparation. Its location allows for easy movement around the kitchen without pushing over guests or cooks. It is an elegant solution to finding usable workspace in your kitchen while creating a pleasant gathering area. You can also use it to divide the kitchen and living room if you have an open-plan house.
Add another dynamic by creating variation in the height of your island. Using the island for multiple purposes, like eating and food prep, will both maximize the utility and make it feel like two totally different spaces. For example, add an appliance to one level (like a sink or stovetop) and create a breakfast bar on a higher tier.
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. 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.
According to Cost Owl, you can purchase a kitchen cart for around $200 and up, depending on the features and quality. Choosing a higher-end cart will significantly increase the price.
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.
A U-shaped island is even bigger. This provides even more space but is also one of the largest styles. You probably won’t see this style in a standard-sized house.
