You have seen my wee vintage industrial kitchen cart before, and we can’t imagine how we ever survived without. It took some time to hunt down the just the right piece for this kitchen, and in case you are in the market for something similar, today’s post may help! Kitchen Cart Design Ideas & Bar Carts for Home shares inspiration photos as well as buying info (the ones below are all friendly priced!).
Whether your kitchen is postage stamp sized or lofty, there is a cart for it. My own cart is needed for extra workspace, and they can do double and even triple duty as breakfast bars, drink stations, coffee bars, and baking tables.
I’m including bar carts in the round-up as well since these versatile carts are helpful in a dining room, on a porch, and even in a bathroom for storage!

Vintage Steel Cart in My Kitchen
Have a peek at the video of the cart in my kitchen:
Use As Bedside Table
Customize for Unique Island/Bar
You certainly don’t need to be sold on the particular existing color or hardware a ready-made cart or work table comes with. I love how Proverbs31Girl beautifully customized a standard cart from Bed, Bath, & Beyond for her lovely kitchen.
She changed the finish of the wood top, swapped out the hardware, and added charming molding. See how she did it in the story HERE.

I was surprised at the low price of this hardworking kitchen cart at Home Depot.

That heading title was uncalled for, but it’s just what popped into my brain when I set eyes upon this beauty. Don’t you love those wheels!?!
Add Instant Age to the Mix
You can always paint out a work table to suit your kitchen, and if you’re lucky, you’ll find one with a distressed finish that is just right.

For the Patio
A collapsible bar cart that comes in a range of colorways and collapses to store? Yes, please!
