Professional organizer Kate S. Brown, CPO, owner of Impact Productivity believes small kitchens are spaces that can work, as long as you have a place for everything off the counter, leaving elbow room for the cook. "Otherwise making dinner becomes a stressful obstacle course punctuated by the crash of something being knocked off the counter," says Brown, who suggests putting your walls to work by storing your nicest pots and pans on pegs.
Although center islands are often fixed elements in a kitchen, they can also be mobile cooking prep and dining units. Let your space dictate the scale and style of your removable island. For example, choose a narrow model for a galley kitchen and an open-base style for a space with a modern aesthetic. These workhorse pieces serve double duty in small kitchens by maximizing countertop space and storage through shelving, which readily offers visual access to kitchen supplies and essentials. Combine kitchen island convenience with style by choosing a material like stainless steel or wood that complements your existing finishes; uniformity conveys the feeling of spaciousness in a smaller room.
If you happen to have hardwood floors, one problem you may have is having the bottom of the chairs scratch the floors. This is due to people scooting the chair back and forth to get on and off the chairs. What you can do to prevent this from happening is to put some rubber or plastic material under the legs. Another thing you can do is get some swivel counter chairs. This way, when getting off the chair, all you have to do is turn it. These types of chairs will vary in price but you should expect to spend $100 or more for a set. However, if you want to save money, you can always buy some cheap plastic ones. Or better yet, try to find them at garage sales. They may look a little beaten down but you can always fix them up. Getting the right counter chairs are just one of the many different types of furniture decisions you will have to make.
