The first thing to consider in designing an island for your kitchen is it's desired chief function. Is it to be a cooking space, a food preparation space, a place with storage? Do you want to incorporate seating space, room for the kids to hang out when eating snacks or doing homework? Factor your answers to such questions into your design in order to find the island that works best for your family.
Portable kitchen islands or carts are just as useful. You want to make sure that ones you look at have heavy duty, locking rubber wheels to keep your island in place especially if you plan to use it for chopping vegetables. There are also islands with drop-leaf extensions giving you more counter space when you need it, but making it easier to store later. Towel bars, spice racks, and paper towel holders are just a few of the many options you have with a portable kitchen cart.
If you are really stuck on what to do with your kitchen island, then try a nice vase or basket of flowers. Fresh flowers are more appealing than fake ones, but they will need to be replaced every few days. You could also try a nice house plant on the island as well. This is a very simple and easy way to add some color and style to the otherwise bare countertop.
