What is your island’s function: Seating at your kitchen island should be based on how your family and how you plan to use it. For those who entertain, you may want seating that allows guests to eat a full meal or just a stool that allows standing and sitting in a more casual setting. If you have children and the kitchen island is where they do homework, you may want a lower counter and seating area. This will help them spread out and feel comfortable, and will help you have easy access to helping them.
Make a small, mobile kitchen island using an Expedit shelving unit, Lagan countertop and Branas baskets, all from Ikea. First assemble the bookshelf, attach castors to the bottom panel, cut the countertop to the desired dimensions, secure it with brackets into an L-shape and then cut an opening above one of the baskets for the garbage bin.
Simplicity is important in the kitchen. This is a space that has to be functional more than it has to be good-looking. And yet there’s plenty of room to combine the two. This kitchen island is a beautiful example. Its transparent and sleek base makes it float while its sculptural shape makes it stand out.
Kitchens typically contain lots of stuff. Not only that, but items often concealed behind kitchen cabinets can be oddly shaped and require a lot of space, such as food processors or stand mixers. Finding a home for your appliances while keeping them easily accessible can be tricky.
