If you have a smaller kitchen space, that does not mean that you ca not add island space to your kitchen. A portable kitchen island or food preparation cart can add usable surface area in a smaller space. You can store the cart out of the way most of the time, and then roll it out for use during meal preparation. The movable island can match your kitchen cabinets or it can have a completely different style, the choice is yours.
Island tops are usually hard wood, granite or marble, stainless steel, or butcher block, which is usually Hard rock Maple fastened end or edge grain to prevent cracking and warping.
There was a time when kitchens were treated just like every other room in the house, and no special attention was paid to lighting or decor. Many older kitchens just feature a single hanging light fixture, regardless of the size, shape or color of the room.
Preserve your Granite Kitchen Countertop: Granite is perhaps the most durable and the least porous of all natural stones available for surface use in the kitchen counter. However, granite still has the ability to absorb liquids, meaning that if it is not correctly and often secured, it can stain.

Before you buy any specific kitchen granite countertop, make sure that you talk and understand about maintenance requirements.
