This Movable Asset Helps With Space and Storage

Kitchen Island Tables
Fantastic Frank

Not all kitchens are equipped with sprawling islands, and unless you're planning a gut renovation, you often have to find creative and effective ways to make the best of your space. This can be especially frustrating with rentals, where kitchens can sometimes feel bare-boned. If you have an enclosed kitchen or live in an open-plan apartment with a one-wall kitchen layout, it may be tempting to add an island—which doesn't always leave enough room for a separate dining table.

Enter kitchen island tables: These versatile pieces of furniture truly can do it all. They can serve as extra prepping surfaces when you're cooking and in some cases, they can even provide much-needed storage space. In a flash, they can transform your small kitchen into a functional space to cook and gather. Best of all, since they're not built-in, you can easily take them with you when you move. If you're not convinced yet, these are our favorite kitchen island tables for every room size, style, and budget. They'll transform the way you interact with your space.
