A Kitchen Cart To Spruce Up Any Kitchen


Contrary to popular belief, the addition of a center island to your kitchen does not have to be permanent or a huge investment. By using portable kitchen carts or kitchen islands, you can achieve the sophisticated look that is associated with a center island without having to do a major remodel or take out a loan.

In kitchens of yesterday, the kitchen table served as the center of activity in the kitchen. This is where people prepared the evening meal, socialized and dined. Today that trend has shifted to the use of a kitchen cart or kitchen island.

In addition to providing extra workspace, today's kitchen carts and islands offer practical solutions to storage and design issues. They can be either small or large, and can range in design from simple to elaborate. Use them to prepare foods, serve buffet style dinners, or to provide extra cupboard space. Need extra counter space? Kitchen carts are available in a wide range of sizes to give you that added space you need.

The design options associated with portable kitchen carts and center kitchen islands are endless, which means that kitchen carts can be incorporated into any style of kitchen. Whether your style is contemporary, country or formal, you can find the perfect kitchen cart to complement your particular sense of style.

Even if you are looking to capture the look of a specific decorating style, you will most likely find that those styles have been incorporated into kitchen islands and kitchen carts. Take for instance the Tuscan, Provence and cottage styles, these are just a few of the styles that you can choose from when selecting your kitchen cart or island. Some of these styles even feature elaborate pieces that have been adorned with intricate hand painted or hand carved designs, which will serve to make your new addition not only a very practical one, but a very beautiful one as well.

Kitchen carts and islands come in wide array of finishes that can be handpicked to look as if they were custom made for your kitchen. There is also a large variety of work surfaces to choose from including wood, stainless steel, granite and butchers block.

The bottom line is: no matter what your style is or how much space you have to work with, you can find the perfect kitchen cart or island to customize your space without having to hire a contractor or invest in expensive cabinetry.

And they are very affordable. The pricing for kitchen carts and islands starts at a couple of hundred dollars. Of course, the price goes up from there and can get a high as $1,000 or more. It really just depends on what you choose. For example: A high-end kitchen cart may have intricate hand carved woodwork, plenty of work and storage space, a wine rack and a granite work surface. Whereas a lower-end kitchen cart may consist of simple elegant lines, a cabinet or two, and a wooden work surface.

So before you go all out for a kitchen remodel, why not take some time to see how a portable kitchen cart or island would complement your space.
