Kitchen islands on wheels are usually topped with either a wooden slab or a metal top for your work surface. They provide extra counter space when you need it and can be wheeled up to any existing counter, sink, or stove if that is what you need. However, when they are not in use, you can stow them away in a corner or along a wall where they might not be very convenient to use, but will be out of the way. One way to free up even more counter space and increase your available work area is to store things underneath your portable island.
Size: Once you have decided on the materials that you'd like to use, it is time to consider the size. Do you want to go big and dramatic, making your kitchen island a focal piece of your kitchen remodel? Or are you more interested in something smaller and less obtrusive, using the island more for standalone functional? Consider how much use it will get, what it will be used for, and how important open floor space is in your kitchen when deciding on dimensions.
A second kitchen sink can be included on the kitchen island. Use a sink that is deep enough for washing large pots and pans, and consider equipping the kitchen island with a trash compactor, garbage disposal, recycle bin and even a dishwasher. Cleanup will be much easier when these appliances are close by the sink.
