Kitchen islands are like the Swiss army knives of home design features; they can function as extra prep space, double up as a working station, serve as a breakfast or bar counter, or even replace your dining set.
But if you have a small kitchen, having an island might be a squeeze—but it’s not impossible! In this article, we show you a few clever ways you can incorporate that covetable island in your tiny cooking space:
1) Get those wheels on!
The key is to make that island as flexible and versatile as possible, and installing castors on it will create an island that is a lot more adaptable than a stationary one. Roll it out when you need them and tuck it away when you don’t! You can also move it around to different parts of the home to meet different needs.
2) Make it your entire kitchen
Rather than see your island as a supplement design, see it as the main feature! Convert your island into your entire kitchen by incorporating into it your cooktop, sink and oven. You can even work in some extra seating if you wish to turn your kitchen into an eat-in.
3) Go narrow
Instead of doing up a galley kitchen layout in your narrow cooking space, knock away the walls and fix up a long and slender island. You now have a bright and open kitchen plus plenty of countertop space—that’s what I call a win-win!
4) Or square
