Butcher Block Islands

Portable kitchen island carts are ideal for all types and sizes of kitchens. Generally made with a wood butcher block surface, the portability allows for a preparation surface where ever you need it the most.

Most portable kitchen carts are purchased to serve one purpose being food preparation. Generally the surfaces do not overhang which prevents it from be used as a secondary dining location. If you cart is being custom built however you can choose to have an overhang that would allow it to be used as a secondary dining location for one or two people.

More Ideas:

Preparation Tables
A different approach from the typical kitchen island is the use of a preparation table. Made and used in the commercial food preparation and restaurant industry, a prep table can easily be used as an alternate for a kitchen island. Most are offered with optional trays allowing for different open concept storage options.

A variety of sizes are available. Widths are generally 25"-30" and lengths are offered up to 72".

Butcher Blocks
Traditional butcher blocks are another unique idea for a kitchen island. They give a royal majestic look that can be used in many traditional and contemporary kitchen designs. Made from solid maple wood, these blocks are extremely durable and can last several lifetimes. Some people have butcher blocks in their homes today that can be traced back through generations of family.

Butcher blocks are offered in a variety of sizes such as 24"x24" and 30"x40" in thicknesses of 10" to 16".
