If you could only save three items in your home, excluding pictures, children's artwork, and other memorabilia, what would you save? Most people would probably take the largest bed, the television, and the refrigerator. One item everyone forgets about, however, is his or her portable kitchen island. This piece of kitchen furniture is actually one of your most valuable home items and should not be overlooked! It is so  useful that you probably do not even know how many times you pull this cart out! If you do not own your own mobile kitchen island, here are some reasons as to why you should. Once you know how helpful these items are, they will definitely make your top three list.

An island is an essential kitchen tool. If you have a smaller kitchen, the odds are that you will not have space for a permanent kitchen island. In these cases, a mobile one is a great alternative. It can be rolled out when you need it and conveniently put away when you are all finished. An island gives you great counter space and an area for storage. Most kitchens today are so overloaded with modern appliances such as large refrigerators, espresso machines, and large knife blocks. These features are wonderful but completely take over any room you had for counter space. Get that counter space back with a mobile kitchen island!

If you are planning to have a party, a portable kitchen island is incredibly useful. Not only can you prepare the evening's food selection on it before your guests arrive, it can always serve as a food table! All you need to do is throw a tablecloth over the top and roll it out to your living room or patio. Put the wheels in locked position, and you are totally set!

A kitchen cart or butcher block is also a wonderful dining and work station. When you are not using it for meal preparation, pull up a barstool and sit down while enjoying the newspaper and a cup of coffee in the morning. It also works as a wonderful surface on which the kids can do their homework while you do the dishes!

As you can see, a portable kitchen island is an essential home item. You should definitely put that on your Christmas list this year!
