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.
Among all the designs, this is the simplest which consists of a large trolley that has convenient wheels, that makes it possible to push the island around. These portable islands, sometimes also have additional facilities such as wine storage space, cutlery rack, etc. These type of islands are made with help of wood and plastic as the island has to be light in weight.
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.
There‘s no end to the creativity, that is used by the manufactures and this kind of island, as the name implies, has a stove installed within it. It also has a chimney or an exhaust attached overhead. These islands, usually have a stone top and have a very less wood in them, as constant heat, has a tendency to spoil the wood.
A two-level island can beautifully utilize the concept of multiple surfaces. A level made of wood that is higher than the granite work surface serves as a small breakfast table, and gives it a dynamic look.
How about combining your personal bar with the kitchen island? It can save a lot of space and also give an elegant look. Bar top kitchen islands can be used to place your wine bottles and stemware along with the food served. Some islands are equipped with cabinets for storing all the bar accessories, and also provide enough working space. You can also place a wine rack on the island top for your guests.
