If extra seating is your goal when it comes to adding an island to your kitchen, then it is important to know how to choose the right stools for your space. First, consider these questions: How many seats are you seeking? How high is the bar? What type of seats would fit your kitchen style? Once you have determined the design of your kitchen island, you can then begin planning for a bar space and the stools that will most appropriately fit.
Is your kitchen big enough to accommodate a large kitchen island? In general, the larger the kitchen island, the more space you‘ll have for storage, eating and food prep. Keep in mind, though, that an island doesn‘t have to be big to be useful.
Home goods stores are ideal for choosing ready-made kitchen islands, like a butcher‘s cart, that will easily fit into a small kitchen space. But repurposed items, like a small desk, bookshelf, dining table or crates can also make an interesting, unique kitchen island. Simply choose the item with which you will be working and top it off with your desired surface, like a stainless steel countertop. Bookshelves or openings in crates can be used for storing kitchen items, like appliances and cookbooks.
Kitchen island carts are a great alternative for space-strapped kitchens. Towel and spice racks, accessory hooks, butcher-block tops and drop-leaf panels are examples of some of the conveniences many models offer.
