Determining how much space you have available in your kitchen for an island should be and is going to be the most important step to finding the right kitchen island cart. A kitchen island can be quite beneficial but only if you are able to accurately choose a size and style that can fit your needs as well as the amount of space or layout of your kitchen. The market is full of choices that fall anywhere between a simple cart with shelving and a surface to more elaborate designs that are custom in appearance and offer various storage and utility options.
There are some cons of having a kitchen island. The largest one is expense. Placing a permanent kitchen island with running water and electric as many of the islands have can be extremely expensive. If one is doing a kitchen remodel, adding the electric or gas line to an island during a remodel can cost a tremendous amount of extra money. Even without electric, gas, or water, the cost of a stationary island can run into several thousand dollars, which might be better used elsewhere.
Kitchen islands are a design feature that can make your kitchen much more efficient. But, a word of caution: this is one design item where you should definitely consult with a design expert while you are designing your kitchen. Unless you have lots of experience in kitchen design, or interior decorating, it is hard to get a good feel for how an island will work.
