Has anyone ever moved their island? We want to move

DWQA QuestionsHas anyone ever moved their island? We want to move

Has anyone ever moved their island? We want to move this island to make it parallel to the sink. We feel it will give us more between the fridge and the pantry on the right. What’s the odds of the hardwood being under it? How is it fastened to the floor? There are two outlets which I can move myself.

It all depends on who put it in. My island just sits on the floor

Take a look at the floor at the base of the island. If it has trim around the edge, it’s likely hiding the ends of the floorboards. If there is no trim, then the island is sitting on top.

Great idea to change the island! First thing when I looked at this photo – ‘this would be so much better with the island parallel to the sink wall.’ Chances are pretty good that your hardwoods run under the island but you won’t know for sure until you move the island. Good luck!

You’ll have to fix the floor, and there’s probably electrical/outlets in the island too?

Hopefully they put the flooring in first then screwed the cabinet down. Fingers crossed.

You have and overhang of your cabinet and trim. So they more than likely put your flooring up to the edge of your cabinets.
Look inside for your outlet cable directions and then decide.
