Itchin’ for a Bigger Kitchen?

If your kitchen is the perfect size and shape, congratulations! If you’re like the rest of us, you’ve probably fantasized about more counter space, more drawers or storage, or a big, beautiful, butcher-block-based gathering space. An appetizing addition, no? Before you take to handling a sledgehammer, consider the kitchen island. This handy and surprisingly affordable accessory literally changes the shape of your kitchen, and requires a lot less commitment than a contractor.

We’re obsessed with the Design Your Own Kitchen Island, and we’re not afraid to show it. This writer likes it black with a stainless steel top in his loft, but his editor owns the white with a wood top to match her Cape Cod kitchen. We’ve mixed cocktails, baked cookies, rolled pizza dough, and chopped veggies around our islands, and most of our guests have, too.

For a kitchen that’s itchin’ for a niche, an island may be just the ticket.
