Movable kitchen island – A do it yourself (DIY) kitchen project saves you the cost of a home contractor. Materials costs enough without labor costs. Each kitchen idea should meet your long-term needs for space utilization. It will be much easier and cheaper to change the wallpaper, paint or window treatments, than it will be to remodel a kitchen with new cabinets, appliances and flooring.
Update a one-wall kitchen that does not provide enough working space with a new kitchen. The quickest way is to buy a mobile kitchen island. A DIY project involves making your own island or install a custom island from a cabinet / countertop designer. To meet universal design principles, there should be at least 38 inches of space on all sides of the island. If you do not have enough floor space, perhaps a movable kitchen island work better because you can move it aside.
A movable kitchen island on wheels add a workstation to a small kitchen when needed, then rolled out of the way, to be used as decorative storage when not in use. Installation of a pull-out cutting board under the counter can provide a work surface when needed without taking up valuable floor space. Locating the knife drawer under the pull-out cutting board is a strategic use of space, as well. Hold the free board space by means of a portable satellite dish draining tray which can be stored under the sink, when not in use. Some Dish draining trays fit over the top of the sink, and so requires no counter space to use.
