Clever ways to make your kitchen island more functional

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.

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 bar stool or two and you’ve got a place to dine, read, and store tableware all in one.
