Another trick for creating a mini kitchen island is to combine the space with the sink area. The design above is more of a kitchen peninsula than a kitchen island. However, putting counter space around the sink gives a similar functionality and feel, combining areas to serve and prepare food.
There are some cons of having a kitchen island. The largest one is expense. Placing a permanent kitchen island with running water and electric as many of the islands have can be extremely expensive. If one is doing a kitchen remodel, adding the electric or gas line to an island during a remodel can cost a tremendous amount of extra money. Even without electric, gas, or water, the cost of a stationary island can run into several thousand dollars, which might be better used elsewhere.
If you have a small kitchen but want the functionality of a kitchen island, do not despair: Just because you are working with a small space does not mean you are cut off from this convenient kitchen feature. Kitchen islands do tend to be popular in large kitchens, and they typically have expansive designs. But by getting creative, you can have a mini kitchen island in your small space.
