A kitchen island can make a fantastic addition to your kitchen. With Thanksgiving coming up, you’ll be thankful that you sprung for this upgrade. But sometimes, you need another surface to help you prepare a glazed ham or put a pie together before it goes into the oven. That’s why you need a prep table. Here is how you can put both of these surfaces together.
Using a Stainless Steel Table
You might have your eye on a stainless steel table as another way to improve how functional your kitchen is. It’s not always much to look at, but when you need something, it can certainly fulfill the purpose you have in mind for it. That said, these tables are purely functional as a flat surface. You won’t find much if any, storage underneath. Depending on what you need it for, that might be too much of a deal-breaker.
Stainless-Wood Table with Wine Rack
Believe it or not, you can pair a stainless steel-wood prep table with your kitchen island. This type of table also features a built-in wine rack. This design features a steel tabletop with open-concept wooden shelving under it. It adds a lot of aesthetic value to the kitchen and since the wheels lock, you can keep it still or move it around the kitchen as necessary, especially if you need another work surface while someone else is busy at the island.
Wood Table as Island
Like its stainless steel cousin, a wood table isn’t too fancy. You can either use the stained wood table on wheels as its own island or again expand the amount of counter space you have available by putting it together with your actual kitchen island. The bottom shelf allows you to store heavier items such as slow cookers or stand mixers. When you need to prepare vast amounts of food, such as enough mashed potatoes for fifteen people, you’ll be glad you have something like this in your kitchen. When you don’t need it, you can easily move it aside until the next time you do need to use it for something.
