For small kitchens, you can go in for foldable sides. The size of the upper surface can be easily reduced. These type of islands are usually made up of wood, with some variants made of plastic. The countertops of such islands are not made up of stone, as the weight may spoil the folding mechanism of the table top.
The L-shaped island is an extension of your kitchen cabinet. You will need to plan this piece of extension while building the cabinet itself. These cannot be incorporated later on. Also, they are not mobile. This island uses minimum space, with the breakfast bar attached to the rest of the cabinet. This makes the room look spacious.
Add a wine rack on one side of an island in an open kitchen, and a side that shows in the living or dining room. As a design element on its own, you don‘t need to do much to make it stand out. Further, you can include open shelving and have the cabinets below the island covered with glass doors to give it a unique look.
This a pretty unique idea, a small refrigerator within the kitchen island. This design, is slowly becoming popular, as the refrigeration is a perfect storage space for fruit and drink. It is also an excellent place to store beer or champagne. At times, this refrigerator is also used as a wine refrigerator. No need to go down to the wine cellar every time!
If you want to customize the design, try having the counter in various shapes. Circular, wedge-shaped, angular, perfectly square, or long and rectangular with a rounded or a semi-circular edge is another great way to add that style and dynamism.
If your kitchen and living area are combined, then this is the best design. You can also use this instead of a separate dinner table. This additional piece of furniture will give you extra working space. Some designs also have the sitting arrangement facing the living room. However, be careful while choosing the design, as the entire look of the living area will change due to this addition. A waterfall island with an extended top can also be an option.
