Factors to Consider While Buying Kitchen Island Carts

Cooking dinner for a special gathering with a limited counter space can be frustrating. When you prepare your favorite meals, you want enough space to prepare them, separate areas to cook the food, keep the utensils, and a serving station. Kitchen island carts help you not only use the surface top to prepare the meal, but you can also use it to move the dishes from the kitchen to the dining area. Kitchen island carts offer many advantages, but buying them can be tedious. When you start looking for a new kitchen island cart, you will notice so many designs and styles available in the market. This plethora of choices makes it difficult to decide whether you are buying the right one or not. If you plan to buy a kitchen island cart, you need to consider several factors to make the right purchase. 

Space

Before shopping around for the new kitchen island cart, you need to evaluate how much space you have available in your house. The kitchen island carts come in various sizes, so you need to make sure they fit in your kitchen. Next, you need to carefully measure the kitchen and determine the exact place where you will be keeping the cart. Next, you can use masking tape to highlight the area and measure the surrounding space. Finally, you have to make sure that there is enough space to walk around the kitchen island cart. 

Size

Once you have allocated space to the kitchen island cart, you need to determine the size. Usually, these carts are small, but you don't want to buy a really small or huge cart. It does not have to cover up all of the kitchen space, but it should offer you enough storage and counter space that you are looking for. The size should be proportionate to the kitchen counter and perfectly fit right next to it. 

Storage Space

The most significant advantage of these carts is that you can roll them out of your kitchen anytime. That means, once you are done using the kitchen island cart, you can move it to another room and open up the living room space. However, you should still choose the size very carefully. You should also pay attention to the number of drawers and shelves that come with your kitchen island cart. Many carts offer both shelves and drawers in one. But, before you decide which one you want, you need to understand the cart's functionality. You need to know the purpose of the cart. Are you using it to store kitchen items, or will you use it as additional counter space? Your answer will help you determine the correct size. For example, if your primary purpose is storage space, you should focus on getting the cart with lots of shelves and drawers. 

Style

Like any other furniture piece, you should match its style with the current decor when you buy a kitchen island cart. Think about the other kitchen furniture and determine the style of your cart. Many kitchen island carts will perfectly fit modern, traditional, industrial, farm, and contemporary decor styles. 

Points to Remember:  

  1. If you have tons of kitchen utensils, consider buying a kitchen island cart with separate storage drawers for bigger utensils, appliances, silverware, etc.

  2. If you want your storage space to be open, you should buy a cart with open shelves instead of drawers. These types of kitchen island carts offer more storage space.

  3. One of the most important things to consider while buying the kitchen island cart is transportation. Being mobile is the biggest asset of these carts, so they need to be lightweight so that anyone can easily move them around.
