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.
Kitchen islands are a design feature that can make your kitchen much more efficient. But, a word of caution: this is one design item where you should definitely consult with a design expert while you are designing your kitchen. Unless you have lots of experience in kitchen design, or interior decorating, it is hard to get a good feel for how an island will work.
Combining functions is a great way to get the most out of a small space. For instance, with some small floor plans, you may have to sacrifice counter space or sink space along the wall in order to fit an island. But by adding the sink to the island, that becomes a non-issue.
The storage space requirements of your kitchen depend on your cooking and shopping habits, the size of the family and your individual lifestyle. If the stored items are organized, finding them and accessing them will be much easier and faster. A trained kitchen designer can work with you to improve the use of your storage space, improving both ergonomics and access.
A "kitchen design of all drawers" provides 50 percent more storage than a conventional one. In addition, the optimized appearance of the design exudes style and sophistication while combining functionality with an overall aesthetic appeal.
