The treasured island: 4 versions of the kitchen hero

The kitchen is a do-it-all type of room, and we spend so much time there that every bit of space is precious. The easiest way to make more space and increase your kitchen’s functionality is with a kitchen island. Here’s how we used islands to create more space for storage, eating, baking, and hanging out with friends.

1. Use an island as your dining table

If your kitchen’s too tiny for a table, consider this multi-functional wonder. Just pull up a barstool or two and you’ve got a place to dine, read, and store tableware all in one.

2. Show off your tableware

With a spacious, open island you can display things you like. This one is large enough to also serve as a place to hang out with your friends, and even enjoy a home-cooked meal. Bonus – you’ll save lots of cabinet space.

3. Serve, store, then repeat

This stainless steel island on wheels holds plenty of ingredients and appliances, and can be pushed to wherever you need it in the kitchen. It’s also an extra work surface. When you’ve finished working with it, just roll it back to its corner.

This DIY island has it all – a large work surface for kneading and rolling, as well as lots of storage for your favourite cookbooks. On the other side, keep the shelves stocked with your trustiest equipment, bowls, and ingredients.
