Kitchen Cart

Functional and Decorative: Kitchen Carts and Kitchen Islands

My dream kitchen is one that is designed with built-in organizers.  If I can have it my way, I like the exterior of the cabinets and drawers to be made out of wood but the interior, made out of stainless steel so that it would be easier to clean and keep tidy.
I tend to collect a lot of clutter so I need plenty of storage to keep things out of sight and organized.   It would be great to have a large kitchen but since we live in an apartment with limited space, I’m looking for inspirations on how I can use every square meter of our kitchen efficiently.
I’ve been searching online for ideas and I love how kitchen carts and small kitchen islands can provide that extra place for cooking utensils, condiments, wine bottles, cook books, and décor.
I really like the new designs of kitchen islands where they have incorporated countertops, cabinets, and adjustable shelves into one piece of furniture so that there are more options as to how you can use it or what kinds of things to put in.   As for me, I want my kitchen island to have a customized area for my dog’s feeding bowls and for books.
I think a rolling kitchen cart (with locking casters, of course) would be great because you can transport it easily to the dining room or living room when entertaining guests.  I looove coffee and so do many of my friends and I wish we have a kitchen cart where I can put in all our coffee (and tea) supplies so that these can have their own separate counter.  Thus, everything you need to make a wonderful cup of coffee are all in one place.  Wouldn’t it be nice?  Below are more inspirations:

Do you have a kitchen cart or kitchen island in your home?  If yes, would you like to share a photo of how you use it as a functional and decorative piece? Do you want to share some tips as to how these pieces can be used creatively?
