Sometimes the kitchen island is also used as a breakfast area or table. Because of that, a special type of design has been developed. It’s a kitchen island and it’s also a table. These two pieces have been combined to create a very clever and functional mix that beautifully complements any kitchen. And just like in the case of any other piece of furniture, this type of kitchen island and table combo also comes in a variety of designs, shapes, sizes and colors.
Some kitchen islands are designed to also serve as bars and all double as storage units. If you have a spacious kitchen, opt for a U-shaped island. If space is a concern, then take a look at some of these smaller islands designed to let the kitchen feel airy and spacious while still keeping their functionality intact.
Space can dictate your seating: If your kitchen island is large, then the seating for it can utilize full size chairs. While smaller kitchen islands may be only able to accommodate two seats. When deciding on your seating, decide how much space you want your guests to have. Often times in kitchens the island is more of a decorative addition than practical seating. Assess your space to see where your kitchen island falls.
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.
