When entering into a kitchen renovation, you may be under the impression that some of the ‘dream kitchen’ pieces after which you’ve been hankering won’t be achievable in a smaller space. This isn’t always the case, however.
As seen with the countertop cabinet granting you a makeshift larder, sometimes an island is also possible, even in the tiniest of kitchen patches. If your floorspace does allow for one, your kitchen designer will want to ensure it’s the multitasking hero of the whole room so that it earns its keep. You should want to receive storage space from it, room for an appliance or two (be it a wine cooler, an undercounted fridge, dishwasher or sink) and certainly an overhang for seating (as it’s unlikely you’ll be able to fit in a table too).
On the seating point, just remember to choose stools that tuck right under – the more floorspace you can give yourself back, the better.
