Island-wheel style: This type of island is like a counter but has wheels. This kind is convenient to use because it does not need extra space on your kitchen. Having wheels, there is no difficulty in transferring the island from one place to the other since it is not stationary. However, installing a sink and other appliances is not possible.
There are many different styles and types of kitchen islands that you can choose from these days, and this means that you can find the perfect design to fit in with the style and design of your kitchen. Kitchen islands can be custom designed to suit the size of your kitchen, as well as complement the rest of the decor in the room.
One of the main features that most people find useful when they wish to have a kitchen island is the ability to have extra storage space incorporated into the final design. If you so wish, you can even have a mobile one, which you can wheel out into the garden for when you are entertaining outside during the summer months.
Some interesting additions to kitchen islands that I have seen include wine refrigerators, wine racks, pet feeding stations, trash compactors, or a prep sink. Wine refrigerators are special refrigerators that are programmed to stay at a certain temperature that is perfect for wine storage. The refrigerator is often equipped with racks so that you can store as much wine as possible in the space provided. Prep sinks are small sinks that are equipped with a garbage disposal. They are not meant for cleaning dishes but rather for washing produce and disposing of the refuse from cutting or preparing food for cooking.
Portable kitchen islands or carts are just as useful. You want to make sure that ones you look at have heavy duty, locking rubber wheels to keep your island in place especially if you plan to use it for chopping vegetables. There are also islands with drop-leaf extensions giving you more counter space when you need it, but making it easier to store later. Towel bars, spice racks, and paper towel holders are just a few of the many options you have with a portable kitchen cart.
