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.
Many kitchen islands can be created with natural woods such as, Northern Maple, Red Oak, Poplar, Birch, and plantation-grown exotic woods. Other kinds of kitchen islands are constructed of stainless steel, or wood combined with stainless steel. Island tops are usually hard wood, granite or marble, stainless steel, or butcher block, which is usually Hardrock Maple fastened end or edge grain to prevent cracking and warping.
If you have a smaller kitchen space, that doesn't mean that you can't add island space to your kitchen. A portable kitchen island or food preparation cart can add usable surface area in a smaller space. You can store the cart out of the way most of the time, and then roll it out for use during meal preparation. The movable island can match your kitchen cabinets or it can have a completely different style, the choice is yours.
Customized-Style: This is a type of island where you can create a unique style for your own island. You may choose the style that is convenient for you to use and the right size for your own kitchen. This must not be too small or too big when placed in your kitchen. A customized-style will also allow you to choose the right color for your preference and will surely fit for your everyday use. Although you can get exactly what you want and design it to match your existing kitchen, it is obviously the most expensive option.
