A kitchen island unit can add style, storage and efficiency to any space. Whether you already have a small kitchen island or you are looking to install a new one, this is guaranteed to be one of your most well-used spaces.
With so much use, it’s important that you install a quality countertop which can take a battering while retaining its solid form and appealing design.
If you aren’t looking to spend too much, you could add a microwave into the side of the island (within a cutout) or a retractable surface used as a simple baking station. Another clever idea is to install a small refrigerator or drinks cooler into the side of the kitchen island, expanding available space to keep ingredients cold.
Lastly, your cooktop needs ventilation. Do you want a range hood mounted in the ceiling and looming over your kitchen island? “There are downdraft vents,” Kirschner says, “but they tend to not work nearly as well” at ventilating your cooking space as overhead ranges do.
