Kitchen Island Configurations: Stacked Cabinets for an island

After considering styling and function, kitchen cabinets are there to compartmentalize things.  The above design does this nicely.

By designing two Ikea refrigerator wall cabinets (15″x30″) instead of full height door base cabinets each level has a distinct function.  The island becomes a coffee station where mugs, cups, saucers and spoons are stored in the top cabinet and bigger items such as the coffee maker, grinder and coffee cans are in the bottom cabinet.

Maybe a gadget charging station?  Install power outlets on the inside cabinet walls and each family member stores and charge their gadgets overnight.

Don’t forget to add panels Perfekt panels on the exposed side to cover the seams between the cabinets.
