For many owners, having a movable kitchen islands are a must for the entertainment of friends and family. If you do not use your bar frequently, however, it can take up valuable space in your kitchen. The simple solution to this problem is to build a mobile kitchen bar. By building a bar on wheels, you can move it to the desired position during dinner or cocktails and roll out of the way when it is not in use.
By creating a custom kitchen bar, you have the freedom to design and build the base however you choose. It can be built with a basic cabinet design with shelves and doors, or you can leave it open in the style of a kitchen island cart. To make the process of building your own kitchen bar easier, consider reassigning an old closet. Simply select a cabinet of the ideal size and shape for your bar and add a top bar.
Before adding the top bar, place the wheels that the kitchen bar will become a mobile bar. Select four cabinet wheels in an appropriate size for your cabinet. To secure the wheels, turn the cabinet over and install a caster on the bottom of the cabinet at each of the four corners. To fasten the wheels, holes with a drill and insert the screws supplied with the casters into the holes through the wheel and tighten by hand. If your furniture has legs, attach the wheels directly to the bottom of the legs.
