But the shape and the design are elements that always differ. What’s important for a kitchen island with seating is to be a perfect combination of functionality and versatility. This means it needs to have built‐in storage spaces, to fit into the room properly, even when it’s expanded and to allow you to use for a variety of activities, such as prepping, having breakfast, working, etc.
Regardless of the size of the kitchen, a kitchen island is one of the most important and more practical pieces of furniture. It’s a functional work surface and it often doubles as a storage unit. So if you have a small kitchen just choose a small kitchen island. A small island can also be a strategic option is larger kitchens if the objective is to maintain and airy and spacious look. Here are a few examples and ideas.
A small dining bar for two to three persons can also be created by extending one of the counter tops along one side. Besides having enhanced work space when the dining bar is not being used, you will also have the exceptional benefit of using the space to serve breakfast or snacks to the kids.
If you prefer open shelves in the kitchen, then get yourself a Billy bookcase and a Numerar countertop and make a kitchen island. Cover the back of the bookcase with beadboard and attach the countertop. You can also install hooks on the sides for extra storage.
This next project is a little bit tricky to create and because of the material used, a little more expensive, but it does look wonderful once installed. Stainless steel tiles can make for a dramatic backsplash look, but the entire kitchen space will also feel the impact.
