Simple and understated, this piece would look fantastic if used to separate a kitchen and living area in a studio apartment — not to mention, it adds a bit of extra storage space for some basic food supplies. I can see the basics (flours, sugars, rices, pastas) looking sharp in containers on those shelves.
How could you not instantly fall in love with this wall shelf? This would be brilliant to use in the kitchen for spices, perhaps, or other small items that you use often.
This kitchen island from Ikea is a great way to add some extra countertop space to a small kitchen — and do so on a budget.
Everything about this shelving is charming. It has that old-world feel, as if you were stepping into a store that has been around for decades.
This island is a great solution — either indoors or outdoors — when you're in need of more workspace. There's really nothing like natural wood to add some life to a space.
A wood cart with wheels that seamlessly fits next to more shelving? It's like a dream come true. And with an affordable price, I wouldn't dare hide such style in a pantry.
Everything about this oak cabinet says sophistication. For me, this is an investment piece, one you'll bring from home to home and use in new and different ways each time.
Though it's intended to be used as a bar, I think this would be fantastic to double as a kitchen island when parties weren't going on. My favorite feature is that beautiful wood — it's amazingly elegant.
Wire shelving doesn't always immediately attract me but the simplicity and style of this design does. A piece like this would really look incredible against a colorful wall and wood floor.
Two of these could easily take care of all of your shelving needs. And that extra drawer space is just an added bonus. Let's face it, we all want to show off some things and have a place to hide others.
From experience, I can tell you there's nothing like a marble top kitchen island. While you need to worry about putting hot pots down on a wood surface, the thought never crosses your mind with marble. And can you imagine how easy it would be to roll out dough for pies or other pastries on this surface?
The warmth of wood, the added extra cabinet space, wheels to make it mobile an a drop leaf to give you extra work space? I don't think you'll find a single thing missing from this kitchen island. It's a cook's dream.
I almost like calling this a work center more than a kitchen island. It has that traditional, small-home-where-people-still-make-bread-from-scratch feel with extra easy-to-access storage space.
If there's a more perfect way to keep fruits, vegetables, and other produce off your countertops, I couldn't have imagined it. Onions on the bottom, potatoes above that, avocados next, and more perishable fruit on the top. This would make it so easy to grab an apple on the way out the door.
