Increased Kitchen Functionality: Stainless Steel Work Tables

Unlike the kitchen island, a work table offers extra counter space for prepping food and getting work done in the kitchen but it doesn’t focus on also adding storage space. However, the two functions can be combined in a hybrid design. But, even so, a stainless steel work table, for example, retains its character and usually offers storage in the form of an open lower shelf.

There’s no reason why such a work table couldn’t also be used outdoors, perhaps on a covered patio. It’s the perfect piece of furniture for an outdoor kitchen and dining area, allowing the two functions to be easily combined.
