Smitty's take on freestanding kitchen storage

Expand your kitchen workspace and storage space with movable islands, bars, and racks that can store pots, pans, and other kitchenware. Many of us have the same dilemma in the kitchen: not enough storage or prep space. At Smitty's there are plenty of temporary solutions, at many price points that you can take with you if you move.


Creating freestanding kitchen storage is easy and fun and the perfect way to maximize your kitchen space.


If you don't have a large kitchen, you can still fit in a narrow island for more counter space. This table from Universal has 2 leaves that fold out, providing extra prep space or seating. Matching chairs are available and can be tucked in. A great solution for a small house or apartment.



There are affordable solutions if your kitchen doesn't have a built in kitchen island. Free standing kitchen islands provide the perfect alternative and will give you extra space for storing spices and dishes not to mention the additional food prep space. This island from Legacy Classic Furniture offers a space saving 11" drop leaf, 5 storage drawers, 2 adjustable shelves and has a built in wine rack. Also, it will seat 2 pub chairs.


The Paula Deen - Riverhouse, kitchen island by Universal Furniture features a stainless metal top, slide out table with casters, 2 doors and 2 metal storage bins.



Kitchen islands by Bermex, provide the look of built in. Available with butcher block or regular top, adjustable sliding top, 1-4 adjustable shelves and a 16 bottle wine rack if desired. Bermex is a Canadian company, manufacturing solid wood casual and formal dining furniture. There are an endless variety of colours and finishes.





Wine and bar cabinets from Howard Miller provide plenty of space for glasses, drinks and other entertaining essentials. These islands allow you to put your best bottles on display.




A Cramco classic baker's rack will provide extra storage for dish towels, cookbooks and more. It can also double as a mini bar.




If you're looking to add a customized look in personal storage,  Howard Miller offers a range of stylish, tall cabinets to help you easily store
and access all your kitchenware.





Find all of your kitchen and dining necessities in one convenient spot with cabinet storage from the Paula Deen's River House and Down Home collections. 




Whether your requirements are for storage or extra space, you can depend on Smitty's talented sales staff to fulfill your needs.
