A simple kitchen utility cart is not an expensive investment but it can be quite beneficial in a small kitchen where counter or workspace is lacking and where you could use the flexibility of a surface on wheels. Kitchen utility carts can be used for the sole purpose of storage or as a prep area. Their most beneficial characteristic is the ability to be easily moved from one area to another. You can even use your cart to serve prepared food at meals or gatherings. Such carts can be found in wood, metal or even plastic materials that are easy to keep clean but more utilitarian in appearance.
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 bottom line on having a kitchen island would be to determine the size of your kitchen and the amount you are comfortable with spending. There are numerous kitchen designers who can help with the decisions.
