Once you determine that an island will enhance your kitchen design, you have several additional options to consider. You can create another work space by adding a second sink and dishwasher into your island. This will allow a second cook to work in the kitchen or allow you to prepare two separate dishes without contaminating one with the other. The added counter space provided by your kitchen island will allow you easier food preparation by minimizing clutter and stacks of bowls and utensils.

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.
