If you are worried about running into corners, then work a countertop with rounded edges into your kitchen island plans, and if you are looking to save a bit of space, a circular or oval-shaped kitchen island could be the right direction. There are endless kitchen island designs available; to decide on the design you should think about what you are going to use your island for the most. Since they take up extra floor space, make sure it’s practical for you and works with your kitchen.
As kitchens marched toward more efficient designs during the late 19th century, innovative designers like Austria’s Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky began integrating storage and working features into every nook and cranny (efforts that led to modular kitchen cabinets). The simple worktable transformed, too, becoming a space with drawers and cabinets, or even built-in bins.
In the 18th century, kitchens often had a simple dry sink, a rectangular cabinet used to wash dishes before indoor plumbing, and a central worktable. Worktables began as fairly plain objects standing on open legs, and were used to knead dough, prepare foods, and store cooking accessories. Because kitchens were not family spaces at the time, worktables really weren’t used for sit-down meals.
