Kitchen islands work best in larger L, U or G-shape kitchens. If the kitchen is too small, the kitchen island will become an obstruction and hinder easy movement. The best custom kitchen islands for small to midsize kitchens are a portable butcher block or kitchen cart for food prep or extra storage.
Once you determine that an island will enhance your kitchen design, you have several additional options to consider. You can create another work space by adding a second sink and dishwasher into your island. This will allow a second cook to work in the kitchen or allow you to prepare two separate dishes without contaminating one with the other. The added counter space provided by your kitchen island will allow you easier food preparation by minimizing clutter and stacks of bowls and utensils.
Levels: If you decide to go the smaller-sized route when constructing your island that doesn't necessarily mean that you have to give up surface area. Adding a second level of a different height to your design will give the piece additional functionality. Multiple levels can be used for different functions such as: a place for a cutting board or book shelf, or as a breakfast bar with stool beneath it. These alternative designs can help give your kitchen island a more customized appeal.
