Using a table as a kitchen island

ciprianticulaNovember 6, 2012

I am in the process of renovating my apartment, and due to budget constraints I was wondering if anybody has used a dining table (store bought) that can also be seen and used as a kitchen island (small).

Any project pictures where you have done something similar would be greatly appreciated!

I would suggest a counter height table to function as a comfortable work surface. Take a look at the Stern table from CB2.

michigam is right - a couner height table is the way to go. One from anywhere is a great idea - I believe ballard and pottery barn may even have some that are designed to be used this way. You can also find "island cart" items that have shelving and storage underneath if that is what you were hopin for - some even have stainless steel tops for easier cleanup. But then they can't really be re-used for anythign else if you move...

Hi, Ciprianticula! We agree with Mona Ives in that a cart with storage may serve you best, and perhaps one with storage for the stools themselves. We've posted a couple images to give you ideas, and you'll find more pub tables and sets at this link (http://www.atgstores.com/pub-sets_1741.html?linkLoc=topnav). Good luck!
