Solid Top

If you are planning on using your kitchen island for slicing and chopping, make sure the top is durable and solid. Butcher block tops are a favorite for reliability and can be finished in tough finishes to protect from scratches and stains. Stainless steel is another option that keeps the top sanitized for prep work. The top is the most important part of a kitchen island so don't skimp on the quality.

Storage

An island can be designed with doors and drawers or open shelving. Open shelving allows you a quick look for items that are used daily while closed doors and drawers provide a clean look while protecting your cutlery and cooking utensils. Other necessities may include towel racks, drop down leaves or spice racks.

Versatility

If you need a space for kids to do homework after dinner is prepared, a kitchen island on lockable wheels with a large surface can give you options. The average height of a mobile or permanent kitchen island is 36 inches. This provides good standing room or sitting with stools. Consider what you would like to use your island for before deciding on the length and width.
