Is your apartment really small? Are you looking for good ideas to utilize the space that you have? Have you considered a kitchen island for your small apartment? If not, you really need to read this.
A multifunctional component, a kitchen island can be very useful in your apartment. It doesn’t matter how small a space that you have in your kitchen, you should be able to find an island that will add more functionality to it.
Even if you end up choosing the smallest of kitchen islands, you will discover that it has many practical uses and you will wonder how you managed without it. There are several different kitchen islands available and it is important to make the right choice.
You want to choose an island that will provide you with additional counter space. It is important that you choose one that is the correct size and that will not restrict the work flow of your kitchen in any way.
Ideally you will want your new kitchen island to serve as a breakfast counter or spot where you can eat other meals. The island should provide you with additional storage space too in the form of shelves, drawers and hooks.
The most practical eating counters have open shelves where you can tuck your knees in at meal times or an overhang on at least one side of the island so that you can tuck in a backless bar stool. There are plenty of these around.
If the kitchen island that you want does not have an open side or an overhang then it is possible to add a larger top to this. If you have to do this, ensure that the additional top is big enough to allow for at least a 6 inch ledge on one side.
The new top that you choose must also have the right level of durability to withstand all of the wear and tear that kitchen life brings.
