Roundup: Removable Kitchen Islands

Roundup: Removable Kitchen Islands

Kristen Lubbe
Jan 27, 2010

We live in a Philadelphia Row House and we're in desperate need of more space in the kitchen. It's impossible for me to cook with anyone &mdash because there's simply not enough room.

We've been looking for solutions to our problem. Our kitchen counters take up less than half of two walls (they're positioned on a corner). When one of us is cooking, we're forced to face the back corner of the house, which greatly impedes on having a conversation while cooking.

The best solution we seem to have come up with is a removable kitchen island. They come in all shapes and sizes and can be made from just about anything. We've compiled a list of some of our favorite ideas from Apartment Therapy House Tour's.

Our favorite removable kitchen island idea is the butcher block. Not only is it small enough to not be obtrusive, but it also serves a great purchase. Did we mention they look amazing? We also love the stainless steel rollable meal carts. They're easily moved, aesthetically pleasing and very practical. We're having trouble deciding which route to take!
