When a kitchen is on the smaller side, tables that look like kitchen islands are a space solution that offer a dual purpose.
The design choices are quite broad. Some tables that look like islands look more ‘island’ than table; others look just like a table, some don’t allow for seating, and then there’s a combination effect of island-tables with seating.
A larger kitchen usually doesn’t require an island table. However, small kitchens fight for functional space, so a table-island that solves eating and preparation is a viable solution.
These days you’ll find smaller apartments and homes combining the table with the island. The table area, of course, provides a place to eat, while the position as an island offers a cooking preparation surface.
Long narrow kitchens are also an ideal place for a table-island combination. A long narrow table-island, surrounded with seating, gives a galley kitchen that extra counter space as well as a place to sit and eat.
A Selection of Tables that Look Like Islands – Various Options:
Depending upon the design solution you’re seeking, a table with seating capacity that doubles as an island can also double as an extra storage solution. Some table-islands come with built-in shelving, cupboards, and drawers.
In a small narrow kitchen, it’s advisable to choose a kitchen table-island that’s completely open. Having the base open gives the room a larger feeling. In smaller rooms, closing off an island with drawers and cabinets can make the room seem smaller. However, it boils down to whether you need that extra storage space: If you need the space, choose a table-island with storage. It’s frustrating not to have enough storage! Don’t hesitate if you need that extra cupboard space.
