Stools are the most compact kitchen island seating idea, as they slide neatly under the counter without a back protruding into the walkway. But even a simple stool has so much potential for customisation! Choose from natural wood for a classic and minimalist look, or make it more contemporary with metal frames or a plastic seat.
Adding a kitchen island can seem like an impossible feat—kitchen renovations are costly, after all—but if the space is already open, a non-permanent island or cart (IKEA sells some excellent ones) can be an affordable, renovation-free way to get the added counterspace and storage.
Do not be fooled: An island does not have to be rectangular. You can conform the shape to better suit your kitchens space and needs or just to make a dramatic focal point. Rounded, L-shape, and T-shape islands are some of the more common substitutes for rectangles.
