Kitchen Island Table – A cooking island is a single-family counter surface in a kitchen that allows access from all sides. Islands provide additional space for socialization, food preparation, cooking or eating. In large kitchens, islands are usually fixed permanently in the center of the room. Mobile islands and cars are a more appropriate option for a small kitchen.
Created for corner storage of rooms or outdoor patios, wine carts work well in small kitchens because the small surface is usually large enough to hold a couple of drinks at a time. Wine carts are identical to kitchen carts and islands, but they also include wine storage space at the base of the units. Shelving can also be included for this type of drinks and other bar accessories. If the main purpose of your island is food preparation, store cutting boards below the wine list for easy access. A wine cart rests on two legs and a pair of wheels, making it stable and strong enough for use in marble and polished hardwood floors.
If you are looking for an island large enough for a seated meal, but still suits a small kitchen, an island-dealing table. Kitchen tables on the island do not have shelves or bars underneath, so there is room to sit. Although stools or chairs are usually made to be stored under the table, make sure you have room to walk behind each table chair when it is in use. Kitchen tables on the island are also useful in displaying snacks during house parties and events.
