One of the reasons I bought the stainless steel work table (at Sams) is so that I’d have some dedicated space that I (hopefully) won’t clutter up. It’s on wheels so I can move it out of the way if needed, it also makes cleaning up under it easier. I probably need to get some more light in that area, I’ve got a lamp from Ikea I could assemble and use. Our kitchen is VERY well lit, by design.
With the wheels on the surface is about 39 inches off the ground, which is actually about the right height for me, our kitchen work surfaces are 33 and 36 inches high (they were sized for my wife, who is much shorter), I wind up bending over more than I should.
