Controlled Kitchen Island a versatile with Hides in the Floor When Not Needed

Tim Thaler needed a versatile kitchen that could provide plenty of space, but in the same time wanted an island for storage. In a mind quest for how to do both, he came up with the ingenious solution of having a retractable kitchen island.  A hydraulic scissor lift is at bolted to the cement, and then a small frame is built on top of the scissor lift table. On top of that is a subfloor, flooring, and then the island. The cabinet doors are on the other side, and have safety push button switches that kill the electricity from the Smart Home Insteon switches, and prevent it from moving when the doors are not fully closed. via
