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.
The island can also double up as a dining table if it is wide and long enough. This eliminates the need for a separate dining table, and allows you to integrate a living space without much effort.
Once you finalize the size of the island after checking out the area available, you can further decide on the placement. The usual idea is to place it at the center, without touching the walls, but you can choose from other options. You can place it in between the kitchen and the living room. This style is very popular these days, where the islands are used as a partition between the living room and the kitchen in place of a wall. Another idea is to place it in between the kitchen and the dining area.
Think of your dining table attached to the island counter where your kids can spend time with you doing their homework or other crafts, while you are cooking and keeping them company. A great idea for large areas, this concept gives the kitchen an elongated appearance.
For small kitchens, you can go in for foldable sides. The size of the upper surface can be easily reduced. These type of islands are usually made up of wood, with some variants made of plastic. The countertops of such islands are not made up of stone, as the weight may spoil the folding mechanism of the table top.
Whether you plan to opt for a portable or stationary type of island that works as a breakfast bar, finishing it in the best way is essential. Kitchen islands are the focal point of any cooking space and a great looking piece is sure to spice up the entire appearance of this space. So if you plan to make it contemporary go for a design with straight lines and well-defined cuts. Play up the piece with colorful laminates. You can find a huge variety in white islands for sale. These are amongst the hot picks in the category as they work well with any type of decor and design style.
