Space Saving Kitchen Island Cart with Stools
Drop-leaf refers to a table top that has ends which can be folded down and pulled up when needed. The greatest benefit of “leaves” is the versatility it provides. In smaller kitchens, you can keep the leaves down during the everyday and pull them up for an expanded table top when you need more surface area for entertaining. But while the leaves are convenient in adding tabletop space, they don’t provide the most stable surface for prepping food, so it’s best to keep the chopping and dough-kneading to the center part of the island. Strong and thick, it provides the best cutting surface. Also, butcher blocks are porous so cleaning is as simple as a wipe down after every use.
