Kitchen island Cons

  • The kitchen islands need a lot of floor space. If you have a smaller kitchen, a kitchen cart on wheels may be a better choice.
  • The kitchen islands are also permanent and costly. Be sure that you like its style, layout, and structure.

What type of kitchen cart or island to order?

  • Fully measure out the dimensions of the free space of your kitchen.
  • Check if there is enough space between your cart or island and the rest of the kitchen area. Is there enough space for moving along in the kitchen and between the fridge and the sink, for example.
  • See if either one is compatible with your kitchen style.
  • If you have a big kitchen, install a kitchen island, because you are not worried about floor space, and you’re looking for more counter and storage space as well as functionality. You’ll get more use out of an island than a cart.
  • If you have a smaller kitchen, a kitchen cart may be ideal, because you are looking for more floor, storage space, flexibility, and convenience.

Recommended by a client:
“This Nantucket Island is beautiful. My hubby didnt think he would like the white but he loves it and so do I.
My brother and I took our time and assembled it. We actually went the extra mile and wood glued all the flat surfaces that met each other, just creating extra sturdiness. The top is very nice and thick. The brackets that hold the leaf are wood which swing in and out. There is also a plastic slot which the brackets clip into to stabilize them while the leaf is up. So glad they weren’t metal brackets. Added bonus. Nice side shelves. Magnetic closures for front doors.
The instructions are easy to follow. The packing box for the top had a dented tear in it which caused a unsightly dent in the top. I took pictures of the box and top and they shipped me out another top. Very happy about that. I think it was careless shipping. The drawer slider was off center a bit. This part is factory assembled. my brother just moved it a bit. (he’s a carpenter)
I highly recommend this!!
We purchased 2 -24″ stools to sit on . I am 5’9″ and they are the perfect height.
The cabinet isnt bright white, more like an eggshell with a shiny finish. That works for me and purchased it for that reason too. The wainscot stripes give it the sophisticated country look I love. country
Love it!!!”

The normal table height is 30 inches and a kitchen island height is 36 inches. So you will need a 24 inches stool (with or without back). A 29 inches stool would be too high for a kitchen island.
