Kitchen island carts are also a budget-friendly option, providing for extra countertop and storage space—without the need to embark on a major kitchen renovation. But just because island carts are utilitarian in function doesn‘t mean they can‘t be aesthetically pleasing, too.
Pre-made antique-inspired designs can be purchased at plenty of home stores, but garage sales and online auctions are some of the best spots for finding these pieces. Consider checking your local newspaper for estate sales or multi-family sales where you might be able to discover furniture that would be ideal for an antique kitchen island design. Retro shopping sites, like Etsy, are also useful for finding these types of islands.
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.
Regardless of the materials you employ, or the solutions the custom kitchen island is designed to provide, make sure the style is in keeping with the overall feel of the kitchen—and that ultimately it functions as well for prep work and storage as it does for entertaining or working.
