And with so many varieties and designs to choose from, you need to be extra careful when selecting the one. Ikea always offers tons of inspiration for everything and kitchens islands are no exception. Browse through there amazing designs and decide which one best suits your style.

Some kitchen islands are designed to also serve as bars and all double as storage units. If you have a spacious kitchen, opt for a U-shaped island. If space is a concern, then take a look at some of these smaller islands designed to let the kitchen feel airy and spacious while still keeping their functionality intact.

And in case none of the designs suits your preferences, then perhaps you’d like to come up with your own. Try one of these Ikea hacks:

Rolling kitchen island.

Make a small, mobile kitchen island using an Expedit shelving unit, Lagan countertop and Branas baskets, all from Ikea. First assemble the bookshelf, attach castors to the bottom panel, cut the countertop to the desired dimensions, secure it with brackets into an L-shape and then cut an opening above one of the baskets for the garbage bin.{found on ikeahakers}.


You can also use the Malm bedroom dresser as part of the island. First build the base( with an Ikea base cabinet you can find as is) and then attach the dresser. After that, move to the sides and top. Use wood countertops and fasten them in place with brackets. For the face of the island you can simply use plywood.{found on site}.

Billy Bookshelves.

If you prefer open shelves in the kitchen, then get yourself a Billy bookcase and a Numerar countertop and make a kitchen island. Cover the back of the bookcase with beadboard and attach the countertop. You can also install hooks on the sides for extra storage.{found on ikeahackers}.
