Kitchen Island question

CLBlakeyMarch 21, 2014

Has anyone ever seen or heard of a kitchen island that is movable but with hidden wheels that drop in order to move it. In other words the wheel go up when stationary or down when you need it to roll. If so can you tell me where I can look for that kind of mechanism. I know it is not really a decorating question but I thought I would try here first.

I have a friend who built a movable kitchen island out of kitchen cabinets. The wheels were lockable, but didn't retract. I see no reason why you couldn't hide them with some trim, though, as long as there was clearance for the wheels to turn.

I have one like that. I bought it at Lowe's 10-15 years ago. It had a "real" granite slab atop it, I took the granite off, gave it to my DIL to put on GD's dresser and purchased another piece myself. It was a real bargain, about $300.00 and has a built-in white rack. Williams-Sonoma had one similar a year or so ago, but the price was much more.

I can't help you there. My kitchen is so small it's an island in itself!
