Thanks for such a detailed article. I have a small kitchen and think I need a movable cross between an island and a cart for my SF condo. I've searched thousands of images - who knew such a creature would be so hard to find? Your article definitely will help me refine my criteria.

Savita: Have you considered working with a local designer or cabinet maker for a custom cart? It can be completely custom or semi-custom, ganging together a couple of cabinets with casters replacing the toe kick & using a panel to cover seams and/or non-finished ends. That is what a number of the examples above did.

I'd also like to mention to check local codes if you are building in an island as part of a remodel. Where I live, the minimum clearance in a kitchen is 36".
