Small kitchen islands: 10 ideas for cooking, dining and more

Yes, small kitchen islands are a possibility. You don’t need a huge, sprawling space to have any chance of fitting one in. In fact, teeny kitchens will benefit so much from a carefully-designed small kitchen island unit – with or without seating – as these clever ideas show. 

A compact, hardworking island unit will boost the functionality of your kitchen by offering extra space for storage and cooking. Dining and socializing can be incorporated too, with a built-in perch, booth or breakfast bar for afternoon coffee or catching up on a spot of work at home.
