Can You Use a Portable Island in Your Kitchen?

It is impossible to have too much storage space in your kitchen and a portable kitchen island increases that valuable space!!

A kitchen island adds versatility to the design and function of your kitchen.  It adds:

  • extra storage space
  • countertop real estate that is invaluable
  • another working area allowing several people to prepare food
  • a gathering space where all the action is happening
  • a focal point for your kitchen
  • extra seating if space allows
  • value to your home 

Could you fit an island in your kitchen?
