Are you frequently running out of space on your countertops? Does your kitchen work space feel congested? If you have answered yes to these questions – perhaps you should consider a kitchen cart that can supply more storage for small appliances and free up your counters thus allowing you more freedom to create the perfect meal!bamboo kitchen cart

A kitchen that is not fully functional is a calamity for anyone who wants to enjoy cooking in a well planned space. Kitchen carts can be a life saver when situated in an unused corner or can even be placed in the center of the kitchen as a work island and act as a storage area as well. Today’s kitchen carts come in all shapes and sizes and are not just functional but are extremely stylish and can fit well with your cabinetry and other appliances making it seem like it was always there.

With ample storage shelves and drawer space you can utilize these efficient carts for pots and pans or serving dishes and utensils depending on your needs. Often having other accessories like a towel bar or even a wine rack, you will find that this kitchen addition will give you more room on your counters because you have cleared off the non-essential items – like a can opener or toaster that doesn’t always get used every day.

Some of the more adventurous kitchen carts feature extensions that can provide even more work surface when needed but can be easily folded down when not in use. If you want to just add a little pizzazz to your kitchen and don’t really care about the work space but want to add a place to display your favorite tea cup collection or serving dishes – there are also many attractive carts that have open shelves or even mirrored doors so that you can showcase your china or Grandma’s dishes.

Most of the kitchen utility carts have wheels but also have the ability to be locked so that they become stationary and won’t go running away from you while you slice a kitchen carttomato! In an apartment or a smaller home where space is a problem everywhere, these carts are ideal for a microwave or coffee maker thereby leaving your counters empty for cooking.

Many of these carts resemble a piece of furniture like breakfast bar kitchen carts so rather than what you would refer to as a utility or kitchen cart so they can be used in a dining room or other areas if there isn’t enough space in the kitchen. These versatile kitchen carts not only come in all shapes and sizes but will fit all budgets as well and can be used for a multitude of purposes: storage, workspace, display center or even a pantry to store canned goods. Whatever the need you can redesign your kitchen space so that you have the needed counter space so cooking becomes a pleasure rather than an ordeal!

    Interesting post Nicolette, I work for a kitchen design company in Ireland and the kitchen utility cart hasnt really caught on here yet. In fact in over two years i cant remember anyone even asking for one. It seems a unique and interesting concept though.

    Hi Anthony,

    I must say Kitchen design in England and Ireland is very modular.

    I hope you start a new trend not only can kitchen carts add to a design they are a very practical item.

    Hope you come back soon!

  3. Nicolette! I love the black cart — actually I am really loving black distressed cabinetry in kitchens, and I think that cart is perfect for those who may not be ready to make a commitment to black in the kitchen!

    I agree that roll around carts are great for kitchens that don’t have adequate room to fit an island, and most people don’t realize this so thanks for posting!
