If you happen to own an interesting piece like this, not only will it make a statement, it will also provide good storage.

Prices for buffets are all over the place. You might be able to find a small one for under $100, but the bigger, more ornate pieces can go for $700 and up.
Create Your Own. What do you get when you combine an old wood table and a piece of Victorian flashing? A one-of-a-kind island. Any kind of old finish should be sealed for safety around food and easy cleaning. For a very inexpensive island, this homeowner took a couple of old, worn shelves and mounted them on a new U-line shelving unit.A wine barrel with a round slab of marble creates an instant conversation piece. Or how about painted tin ceiling tiles?
Division on Anna Maria Island. In this Florida beach house, homeowners Missy and Phil Gerardi placed two hardworking islands side by side to create a room divider between the kitchen and the living and dining spaces. Connecting spaces in London. In Michael and Courtney Adamo’s Victorian home, a large island creates a transitional zone. The kitchen side is made for food prep, while the other is a great area where their four children can work on projects and homework.
Kitchen projects are a design feature that could create your kitchen much more effective. But, a word of warning: this is one design piece in your kitchen where you should surely consult a kitchen design expert when you’re scheming your kitchen.
