I really want to remodel and makeover my incredibly small 1970′s corridor kitchen. We bought our house about 16 years ago and the only thing we changed in the kitchen was the ugly counter tops and that was about 8 years ago. I really want to gut the whole kitchen and start over, but I don’t really think that will happen in the near future.
Since my dream of a kitchen remodel isn’t really in the budget this year, or even next year, I started to think about some ways that I could freshen up the kitchen plus give myself some additional work space. I started searching around the web to see what some of my options were when I came across the idea of using a kitchen cart. It adds storage plus, if you purchase the right type, it provides additional space for prepping and mixing foods.
An internet search brings up 1,000 of options and after looking through some sites I found this Granite Top Kitchen Cart and really liked it. It looks like the right height to tuck in at the end of my counter PLUS (big plus) it has a wine rack (ha, you knew I was going to say that didn’t you–lol).
That kitchen cart is a great size for the end of my counter, but my heart really flipped when I seen this Cherry Wood Kitchen Cart with a Granite Surface. Yep, this would definitely make an impact in my kitchen, plus it offers more cooking/prep space and would fit perfectly next to the fridge. Another perk is that I could wheel it right onto the deck and have it double as a bar and buffet during summer parties. It also looks like it has plentiful storage for tucking items away when they are not in use.
I think the most important feature of a kitchen cart is a granite top. It’s my understanding that granite is very durable and you can prep food on it without damaging it unlike cheaper materials. Another important feature, for me, is storage. Since my kitchen is already small any additional furniture is going to have to earn its keep. This cart is definately going to the top of my kitchen “want” list. It’s much cheaper than a remodel and will provide a little sprucing up for my boring kitchen.
What do you think?? Would you consider adding a cart ot your kitchen? Do you already own a kitchen cart? Let me know.
