One last place to look at is in online classified ads such as Craigslist or eBay. In these sites you will find a number of classifieds by the owners themselves, from used kitchen furniture stores and even from consignment stores. Not many people think that eBay retails lots of items other than clothes. There are many used kitchen furniture pieces to choose from in eBay. Do remember that you should employ your negotiating skills when you buy used kitchen furniture. You want to get the best price available. By the time you decide to buy one, you should already have a price in mind but will still haggle for a lower price.
You are better off without it if you are using up all the free space in the room. Your kitchen should be spacious and you should never feel restricted in your movement - in fact it can be dangerous if you are. Yes, a kitchen island is good to have, but not if your safety and freedom of movement are compromised to accommodate it. A kitchen island can be a useful item of kitchen furniture, but it must serve a purpose and must not be restrictive. Given these provisos, then it can convert an ordinary kitchen into a room you will love to be in and show off to your friends and neighbors.
There are many more benefits according to how you use this type of kitchen furniture. However, before making the decision to purchase a kitchen island, you have some important factors to take into consideration, not the least of which is space. You need around 3 feet of walking space around the island unit, and you must be sure that the drawers and doors in the cabinets have room to open. If you keep to the 36 inches then you should be OK. The only dimension that must be stated is that of the counter height. Ideally it should be the same as the rest of your kitchen units. If not, then it is not a disaster, but can be disconcerting when you are working on the various surfaces at varying heights.
