While small cooking corners are easy to maintain, there are days when we can’t help but wish for a bigger countertop, an extra storage nook, or even a bigger space where we can move around and finish cooking in minutes. Aside from installing shelves and overhead cabinets, there’s a versatile piece you can invest in to help you make the most of the cooking area you have—a freestanding kitchen island! You may opt for a table or a mobile cart that you can place in a corner for storage, too. Here are noteworthy picks and how you can maximize each:
