Kitchen islands come in various designs and sizes, so there’s a fit for every type of space, whether it’s a farmhouse kitchen or a modern one. For a kitchen lacking a lot of square footage, you can opt for a rolling kitchen island or small kitchen islands—these can add additional surface and storage space without taking up more precious space.
If you want to keep it simple, matching your kitchen island to your cabinets and worktop is the obvious choice. This way everything coordinates, and you’re left with a clean, classic look that fits seamlessly. This is particularly well suited to small kitchens, where consistent use of light, neutral colours will help to open up the space and make it feel airier.
An island can fill any of the five of the kitchen functions: storage, prep, cooking, serving, and washing up. Before you design anything, however, you need to decide which role (or roles) your island will fill. This will have an effect on the width and depth of your island, especially if you need room for major appliances.
