If you are remodeling a kitchen that has plenty of floor space but less counter space or cabinet storage space than you want, include an island. Even a small island can provide as much storage space as two double cabinets and a 2 x 3 work space. This is a particularly good option for people who have difficulty reaching the top shelves of wall-mounted cabinets. This can be very easy to build by standing two cabinets back to back, attaching them to the floor, and placing a butcher block or countertop on the top.
