1. If your kitchen isn't big enough for you to always have a seating area at your island, consider a drop leaf kitchen island. Kitchen islands are great for connecting with your family while you cook. Pull up a couple counter height stools and your kids can help mix batter or do homework while you chat about the school day. When friends come over for a dinner party, you can entertain while you prepare by using the island as an inoffensive dividing line separating your guests from your work space.
2. If your kitchen cart is first and foremost for storage, that means the base is probably full of cabinets, drawers, and shelves - not space for your knees if you feel like popping a squat at the counter. Drop leaf kitchen carts remedy this issue by instantly extending your countertop to form a shelf under which knees are free to relax. Put the kitchen cart drop leaf back down to restore your kitchen's clear walkway.
3. Unless you're a professional chef, you probably don't spend your whole day cooking. Most of the time it's OK if your kitchen is small and doesn't have much counter space. But it's a fact of life that you have to eat every day, and then you're confronted with the frustration of too many implements and not enough space to use them. With drop leaf kitchen islands, or even a drop leaf kitchen cart, you can instantly create more counter space to make the daily task of food preparation go a little more smoothly.
"Got my Kitchen Island on Friday, put it together Friday evening and used it all weekend. It's really built well. Thanks for the quality merchandise. We're remodeling, so we've been doing without a kitchen for 9 days now and it's been our little "Island" of convenience in the middle of all the mess.
