If you are not looking to invest in a full cart, you can purchase a kitchen island centerpiece containing different levels or tiers. This is useful for displaying flowers, fruit, spices or plants.
And do you want one level or two? Burnham loves the clean lines of one level surface. But Kirschner sometimes designs an island with two levels — one at counter height for cooking prep and a lower level at table height, so you can sit in chairs rather than bar stools.
“A lot of people underestimate storage needs,” Fenimore says, so really think about how you cook and what you use. Kirschner also suggests considering what you might want to store that isn’t technically a “kitchen” item. Her island includes drawers for her children’s art supplies, because the island is where they do arts.
In the end, that island “has become the literal hub in our home for socializing,” Fenimore says. We’ve asked Fenimore, founder of the design firm Studio Ten25, and two other interior designers — Los Angeles-based Betsy Burnham and New York-based Jenny Kirschner — for their thoughts on great kitchen-island design and trends.
