Kitchen Island Carts

Discover the space-saving qualities of a kitchen island cart.
The two zinc-top islands add about 11 square feet of counter space. The metal frames match the open shelves, and the zinc tops will develop a pretty patina over time. Casters allow them to scoot around for flexibility and easy floor cleaning.

Kitchen island carts are a great alternative for space-strapped kitchens. Towel and spice racks, accessory hooks, butcher-block tops and drop-leaf panels are examples of some of the conveniences many models offer.

Completely portable—casters allow you to move the cart from room to room, or inside and out—a kitchen cart can also double as a bar cart or a buffet, helping to transport food items, serving platters or barware to make your source of entertainment fully mobile.

Kitchen island carts are also a budget-friendly option, providing for extra countertop and storage space—without the need to embark on a major kitchen renovation.

But just because island carts are utilitarian in function doesn't mean they can't be aesthetically pleasing, too.

Stylish, furniture-like cart options include granite or stainless steel tops, paneled cabinet doors and bases of solid-wood construction.
