If your kitchen is small, consider installing extra-long upper cabinets with molding for extra storage space. Place lighting or greenery along the molding to draw the eyes up. Always install cabinets over the refrigerator; not utilizing this area is a waste of storage space for large or seasonal kitchen items. Finally, install shelves across the backs of the lower kitchen cabinet; this could add up to 4 square feet of storage space.
Full area seating: Your kitchen island doesn’t only need to be for short stays at the counter. Several kitchen islands are as big as dining room tables and can accommodate larger parties to sit. For these islands consider using full benches with or without backing to allow the seated person more comfort. Full size chairs can be used and chairs can match the adjacent dining room table to uniform the space.
No dining room area: If you live in an apartment or small home where a dining room is not an option, a kitchen island with seating is ideal. Even if you need to renovate your space, kitchen island seating may make your space flow better if you have little room to maneuver in your current eating area. Get inspiration from your favorite décor magazine for small loft areas or apartment living dining spaces.
While some designs are simple and incorporate the table into the island’s basin shape, others try to take it one step further and they feature innovative looks. Depending on the design and style of the kitchen you can find a diversity of kitchen island and table designs as well. Some impress with their detailing, some with their shape, some with the combination and materials while other keep everything simple and try to blend in for a uniform and coherent décor. We have made a selection of such kitchen islands and we included diverse designs for all tastes.
