If your kitchen is too small to install a large kitchen island, then you can purchase a portable island. Kitchen islands on wheels are great because you can bring them out when you need them and store them in a corner or against a wall when you don't. The other advantage of portable kitchen islands is that you do not have to keep them in the kitchen. You can put a table cloth over the top of one and wheel it out into your living or dining room and use it as a serving table for wine, cheese, or appetizers. The shelves underneath make a convenient place to store extra napkins, cups, or toothpicks. All of your party supplies can be within easy reach but out of site.
Include a ventilation hood overhead to eliminate smoke, steam and cooking odors if your kitchen island is going to have a cooktop. The range hood should extend beyond the cooking area by 3 inches or more on the sides for proper ventilation. Using the correct fan size will ensure that removal happens as intended. Have a fan capacity of about 50 cubic feet per minute (cfm) for each square foot of cooktop area.
Besides meal preparation, the kitchen can become a gathering area for family and friends if there is enough space. Since so much happens in the kitchen on a regular basis, getting the layout right is important. The kitchen island can serve as an additional eating area, and food preparation can easily be done there. In a large kitchen, the kitchen island can shorten the distances within the working triangle (sink, refrigerator and range or cooktop) and make it more efficient.
