1 Big Reason These Kitchen Islands Are Better For Small Spaces Than The Rest

The merits of wheeled furniture items have long ago, now, been covered. On wheels, furniture items of any shape and size become mobile, allowing you to shift their functionality. Plus, things that are easier to move are easier to clean under and around.

I know; tell you something you don’t know, right?

I was perfectly content with this all being old news, too, but then a discovery on My Domaine re-wetted my appetite.

The ladies of Sakara Life, an organic meal delivery service, needed to ensure that their studio space was easily convertible–from kitchen to hosting station and back again–without the slightest of grunts. So, they put the largest unit in the space on wheels and ta-dah: a mobile kitchen island was born.

(No, really, I’m asking: wouldn’t this be great?)

    Agree there are benefits for small spaces, but w/ out an electrical outlet, an island is not being utilized to its full potential.
