5 Reasons Why Small Kitchen Carts are Great in Tiny Spaces
Small kitchen carts can feel like a lifesaver
when you have a very little, compact kitchen. Fortunately, they are not difficult to find, are highly
affordable (especially if you can find one at a good discount), and come in a wide variety of styles to match
your décor. That being the case, have a look at the following reasons why small kitchen carts can make a
big difference in the limited space of your own kitchen, to help you to know why this could be the best
furniture purchase you’ve ever made.
Reason 1: Small kitchen carts add counter space
In a very compact kitchen, the odds are that trying to find some counter space is a constant battle.
Small kitchen carts can solve that problem by adding another little surface on which you can prepare food or sit
your small appliances such as your toaster, coffee maker, or microwave. In a tiny room, every bit of surface
space counts, and small kitchen carts can help to add a whole new level of functional space to your room.
Reason 2: Small kitchen carts add storage space
Just as there is a small amount of counter and workspace in a compact kitchen, storage areas
are also limited. Small kitchen carts can add that little bit of extra square footage that you need as an
extra cupboard, surface, racks, drawers, or shelving space to store those extra kitchen items that just can’t seem
to find a home in the current design and features of the room.
Reason 3: Small kitchen carts can be moved or stored elsewhere
Though small kitchen carts may be used for food prep or cooking, there may not be enough room in a very tiny
kitchen to keep them there all of the time. If you find small kitchen carts with good quality rubber casters
or heavy duty casters, you can use the surface and storage when you need them, and simply roll it out of the way
for the rest of the time. This lets you open up the kitchen when you need a bit more maneuvering space, and
store the cart somewhere else in the home that has more available space when that furniture is not being
used. This lets you get the very most out of every square inch available in your little kitchen.
Reason 4: Small kitchen carts can add features to a very basic room
It can be very difficult to have many additional features in a little or compact kitchen. Small kitchen
carts let you wheel in some handy additional features such as a butcher block or cutting board, a wine rack, a
towel bar, and a knife block. All of these features can be shifted about the room to be used wherever they
are most convenient, as the piece is on wheels and is therefore not limited to a single stationary position.
Therefore, you not only have the feature you want, but you have it right where you need it, too.
Reason 5: There are small kitchen carts to fit every budget
Because small kitchen carts are little, they don’t use as much of the materials that would be used in a larger
piece, and therefore don’t cost as much. This allows you to either choose an inexpensive piece to fit a
limited budget, or you can upgrade a number of the materials, such as using a grey granite countertop instead of
maple, or nickel plated hardware instead of 16 gauge stainless steel. You may also take the opportunity to
add on additional features that would have been more expensive in a larger model.
These are only a few of the reasons that small kitchen carts can improve upon a compact kitchen. When you
bring the right one home, you’re certain to discover many more with every day that it is used.
