Among all the designs, this is the simplest which consists of a large trolley that has convenient wheels, that makes it possible to push the island around. These portable islands, sometimes also have additional facilities such as wine storage space, cutlery rack, etc. These type of islands are made with help of wood and plastic as the island has to be light in weight.
Another way to design it is to use different materials to divide work surfaces. For instance, you could add a butcher‘s block (chopping board) that is a wooden surface on 1/4th of the island surface, and keep the remainder granite as a work surface. This not only serves dual purposes but also adds an element of interest.
There‘s no end to the creativity, that is used by the manufactures and this kind of island, as the name implies, has a stove installed within it. It also has a chimney or an exhaust attached overhead. These islands, usually have a stone top and have a very less wood in them, as constant heat, has a tendency to spoil the wood.
Now, stationary islands are the best solution if your kitchen offers a larger space. This means that you can get in a full-sized island that perfectly works as a dining table as well. All you need is a nice glass or granite countertop and pendant lights suspended from the ceiling right above this breakfast bar. Of course adding up the dining essentials to the countertop needs no mention. Now line up the chairs and get set to enjoy your food right here! A style having half part dedicated for dining and half for other work also works well. In this case the dining corner can have an empty base that offers enough leg room while you sit on stools and dine here. Only the other half of the island can have drawers and shelves below it.
If equipped with proper sitting arrangements, this design will provide great ambiance for the regular coffee breaks as well. If you are revamping the kitchen, this design will cost you the least and give the kitchen a classy look as well. So, if you have less space in your kitchen and cannot incorporate a separate breakfast bar, this is the design for you.
Portable islands are the latest pieces in the world of kitchen furniture and decor. Let me tell you that these offer you a movable, often compact kitchen island which can be used in multiple ways. The piece can be moved to any place in or out of your cooking space which is the best part of its design. What‘s more, the same can be used as a serving trolley or a breakfast bar as well. The compact bar stools are best paired with this compact design if the island is also a small breakfast bar. Make sure the same has good quality wheels which lock.
