Build a Custom Rollout Cabinet
Pushed beneath the counter, it’s a cabinet with an adjustable shelf. Pulled out, it’s an extra work surface with a butcher-block top.
When designing a kitchen remodel for some of my favorite clients, we wanted to eliminate an awkward pinch point created by an existing peninsula without losing the counter space. The kitchen is just narrow enough that a dedicated island wouldn’t work, but big enough that we wanted to somehow utilize the full space. We decided on a small rollout cabinet that could easily move around to wherever the homeowners would be working in the kitchen. We wanted to integrate it seamlessly with the rest of the cabinetry, but without it being fussy to take out or put in.
The result? A fully functional, movable island that rolls wherever the owners need, doesn’t take up any room in a somewhat narrow space, and integrates seamlessly into the cabinetry.
