IKEA's New OLOFSTORP Storage Island: With an Extendable Top!

Best Products for Small Kitchens

Small kitchen cooks, rejoice! IKEA's newest storage island is designed with you in mind. Adjustable shelves? Check. A cabinet with door and a roomy drawer? Check. A top that extends out on either side to double its size? Oh yes. And hurray for the chic gray and black color combo instead of the standard birch.

Released last fall, the OLOFSTORP retails for $249, which puts it on the higher end of IKEA's kitchen cart and island selection, but it's also their first model that includes a cabinet for hidden storage (all the other islands are open shelf models).

According to IKEA's description, the unextended top width is 31.5" inches, but when folded out the top surface area extends to 63" — such a great feature, perfect when you need a little more prep space in a small kitchen but can't afford to give up that space 100% of the time.

I don't need a kitchen island right now, but if I did, I think this would definitely be at the top of my list!
