Some features to consider in adding a kitchen island can include the oven, kitchen exhaust hood, electric switches and outlets, and storage and shelves. Finally as for the material of the island counter while you could use the same material for the island counter as you have for the kitchen counter it is possible to consider different materials to create an more interesting look.
Making good use of small areas is all about combining functionality in a space. Get creative with storage options. Use space beneath your island to shelve books or store bottles of wine; add drawers and shelves for baking supplies; install fold-out cabinetry for maximum storage. If you are going to have a kitchen island in a small space, it is important to make the most of the space by using the island for multiple purposes.
There are also kitchen islands which can be moved as they are on rollers. This can be a benefit if the kitchen is small enough a stationary island could get in the way. The moveable island can be put into place when working in the kitchen, then moved when the tasks have been completed.
The use of shelves in the base cabinets is a poor ergonomics: it makes it very difficult to find articles since it is impossible to get an overview of all the contents of the cabinet. It is quite common for a kitchen user to bend and stretch when looking for something. Also, they often have to remove the contents of the front to access the elements of the back.
The choice of drawers for your lower cabinets provides much more flexibility, which means that kitchen elements can be easily stored and retrieved. Baseline drawers are also better for storing large items such as pots, pans and casseroles. While the deployment trays provide similar functionality, they require additional cabinets: deployment doors and trays.
