14 Kitchen Islands That Will Improve Even the Smallest Kitchens
Small-space living has its challenges, but many people don't see the potential in small spaces — especially when it comes to small kitchens. Often, the main issues are lack of storage space and counter space for meal prep. The great news is, you can solve both of these issues with the same piece of furniture: a kitchen island.
While many people with small kitchens avoid adding an island for fear of making the space feel even smaller, the main trick is to adjust the scale of the island to fit your space and your storage needs. Keep reading to see some of our favorite small-space kitchen islands that don't sacrifice on functionality or style.
