As part of a rather large (and loud) Italian family, a lot of time is spent in and around the kitchen. It's the hub for entertaining at home and the location for everything from homemade ravioli assembly and baking delicious desserts to a good ol' fashioned prosciutto slicing - what, you've never done that? With so much going on in the kitchen (and sometimes all at once), having enough workspace really makes a difference. Whether you're looking for storage solutions or extra seating or if you're in the midst of a kitchen renovation and looking for inspiration, a stylish worktable might just be for you. San Francisco's kitchen, dining and home studio MARCH has recently launched an exclusive collection of beautiful worktables that combine the storage options of a kitchen island with the openness of a kitchen table. Fully customizable, these workspaces feature steel bases, parsons or turned legs and stone or wood tops. The collection also includes a variety of kitchen accessories with choices from wine racks and baskets to slatted oak shelving. Providing an alternative to the monolithic kitchen island, MARCH's designs complement traditional and contemporary kitchens as well as open-plan living spaces. If a trip to San Fran isn't in your future (or budget), I've rounded up a few great worktable options to consider, a little closer to home. Industrial Kitchen Island With its mango wood surface and steel pipe legs, this kitchen island doubles as a prep station and entertaining spot. West Elm , $549.52. Home Styles Kitchen Cart A natural wood and stainless top makes this kitchen cart a helpful space saver. Home Depot, $277.96.
