Another brilliantly big idea for a tiny space - a height adjustable kitchen island. At the press of a button, the Team7's K7 unit from Wharfside can go from a standard kitchen worktop to a sideboard, bar or dining table. Perfect for open-plan living spaces.
The island can be endlessly raised and dropped from 74cms high to 114cms high. It's said to make the move so seamlessly that you don't even need to clear the plates first and as the sink can be covered up and the taps retracted, you'd hardly know it was a functional piece of kitchen furniture when in table mode.
The unit is available in a variety of finishes and doesn't come cheap. To give you some idea, the island including the motor-raising surface, quartz work surface and solid walnut drawers and cupboards costs in the region of £33,000. It is, however, one of those rare pieces of fitted furniture that will actually add value to your home, as well as wow factor.
