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.
Another con is space. While it was mentioned previously that there are rolling islands, if space is at a premium, an island may just not be practical. There is nothing more frustrating to a cook than having something in the way when you are trying to prepare meals for your family, or yourself. If your kitchen is small, while you may long for extra storage space and countertop, an island might not be the best solution.
This style goes well with minimalist stool designs that tuck beneath the island itself. Stools do not take up much room as it is, but in a small area, every bit of space counts. Choose a stool design that allows for storage under the island when not in use.
