Levels: If you decide to go the smaller-sized route when constructing your island that doesnt necessarily mean that you have to give up surface area.

Multiple levels can be used for different functions such as: a place for a cutting board or book shelf, or as a breakfast bar with stool beneath it. These alternative designs can help give your kitchen island a more customized appeal. 3.
