I have a relatively large kitchen. The counter space is not the best, but we make the most of what we've got. I was thinking about getting a kitchen island that can be moved to add some storage and work space. It's kind of a large purchase so I want to be sure about it. It's either the island or a nice steel wire rack against a wall to increase the storage space no but the work space.

Anyone have good or bad experiences with kitchen islands? Any recommended models?
