If you live in an apartment or any rented home then it is not easy for you to make changes to the kitchen. Apartments especially, have very little space to work with and one thing that is often missing from the kitchen in an apartment is a kitchen island. Islands are very useful because they offer an extra workspace if you need more counter space and they have extra storage underneath in case you cannot fit everything in your normal kitchen cabinets. They also offer a place to pull up stools and create a small breakfast bar. Kitchen islands with stools area great way to have a mini breakfast bar for one or two people to sit and eat in your home. However, you often do not have room in an apartment to install a permanent fixture let alone the permission to do it. A nice alternative is the portable one on wheels.
Levels: If you decide to go the smaller-sized route when constructing your island that doesn't necessarily mean that you have to give up surface area. Adding a second level of a different height to your design will give the piece additional functionality. Multiple levels can be used for different functions such as: a place for a cutting board or book shelf, or as a breakfast bar with stool beneath it. These alternative designs can help give your kitchen island a more customized appeal.
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.
