Small Kitchen Islands

Make room for a kitchen island in the smallest of spaces with these design ideas.

A small kitchen island can be perfect for adding versatility to a compact cooking space.

A small kitchen design doesn't have to result in a recipe for disorganization and too little counter space. In fact, the addition of a kitchen island can provide extra storage room and a place for food preparation, making the space more manageable.

When designing the kitchen layout for a small space, it is important to thoroughly consider the size of the space you will be working with in order to find a kitchen island that will be efficient. Decide on where you will be placing the kitchen island and how tall you would like for it to be.

Home goods stores are ideal for choosing ready-made kitchen islands, like a butcher's cart, that will easily fit into a small kitchen space. But repurposed items, like a small desk, bookshelf, dining table or crates can also make an interesting, unique kitchen island. Simply choose the item with which you will be working and top it off with your desired surface, like a stainless steel countertop. Bookshelves or openings in crates can be used for storing kitchen items, like appliances and cookbooks.

Depending on available space, you may have room for a kitchen island with seating by squeezing in a stool or two on one side. If you only have room for one, then consider purchasing a seat that can be easily moved when you need to use the island for other purposes.
