If there was a singles' advertisement for a kitchen island cart, then the description would include words like "mobile," "easy-to-love" and "I'll-follow-you-anywhere."

OK, so while there may not be a personal ad for a kitchen island cart, the truth is that this piece of furniture can be the ideal choice for a small kitchen space, or even an active chef who wants the accessibility of an extra food preparation area without always having it smack-dab in the middle of the kitchen.

Kitchen island carts are typically smaller than built-in kitchen islands, often using a wooden or stainless steel top accompanied by a couple shelves and a single drawer. Some designs also include one or two cabinets for concealed storage.

While the kitchen island cart can certainly serve a number of purposes, it is most often the choice for someone who is seeking an additional food preparation space that includes storage for a few small items. Kitchen bowls, cookware and small appliances can typically be stored on built-in shelving.

Other features that are often included in kitchen island cart design are hooks for hanging utensils or small pots, and a rack for storing a kitchen towel.
