A big kitchen island was on the top of the wish list when we were house hunting. I wanted lots of space for entertaining, seating and a little storage nook within easy reach for my cookbooks.
Not exactly what was on the “wish” list.
When we purchased our home we had big plans to re-do the island. But, after living in the house for a while it was just no longer a priority. We actually found the island to be both practical and functional. But, I still really wanted that little nook for my cookbooks and extra storage.
I think adding a small bookcase that fits the space would be a great solution too.
So, we may not have the big island for entertaining, with lots of seating, but we were able to add a little extra storage without any construction or a big price tag.
