Kitchen Island Carts: Why These Movable Multi-taskers Are So Desirable

by Susanne Clemenz

Stationary kitchen islands are functional and handsome, but even if you have one, a separate kitchen island cart may come in quite handy.

Kitchen island carts serve purposes that kitchen islands do not--and their usefulness extends beyond the kitchen. Here's why and how:

  • Take 'em where you need 'em. Load up dishes, flatware, and placemats to transport them to and from your dining table.
  • They add functionality to stationary kitchen islands. Is your island too small? Add a cart with shelves, drawers, bins, or cupboards below. Store bowls and pots, potatoes and onions, cookbooks, or toys and baby supplies.
  • Permanent island versatility is increased, without much expense. Kitchen island carts come in every configuration, from open shelves to cabinets, drawers, and dish towel racks--even drop-leaves for dining! And prices for every budget.
  • Styles galore! Carts are available in every architectural style, from country to craftsman to contemporary, and every top surface from granite to butcher-block to stainless.
  • Add an island to your patio. Store patio dishware, barbecue utensils and supplies, bar supplies, sunscreen, and more. Use a stainless, weatherproof cart with open shelves to bring food and dishes in and out of the kitchen.
  • Kitchen carts enhance poolside convenience. Store towels, sunscreen, pool shoes, or pool toys during the season. Wheel the cart into storage off-season.
  • They can extend your existing bottom cabinets. Park a kitchen island cart across the end of your lower cabinets to add counter space and storage.
  • It's easy to build one. Buy a kitchen cabinet, then give it a countertop and wheels. Or put wheels on a small manufactured island. Check magazines and online sites for free kitchen cart plans.

You get the idea. Now get rolling on finding your own kitchen island cart!
