From autumn parties to the highly anticipated Thanksgiving dinner, your kitchen is going to see a lot of action this holiday season. And as a dedicated host or hostess, you’re willing to take the necessary measures to ensure your guests have the best experience possible. That’s why more and more consumers are searching for the perfect kitchen cart for their home. More than simply storage, these carts will prove to be a game changer the next time you host your loved ones. If you’re not sure a kitchen cart is right for you, check out the top three reasons the Twin Star Home™ team thinks you’ll love adding one to your home this autumn.
#1 – A Kitchen Cart Makes Meal Prep Easy
The benefits of a kitchen cart (like the one pictured at the start of this blog) begin before you’ve even cooked the meal. As you know from hosting many successful get-togethers in the past, throwing a party means your counter space will become cluttered with all of the activities associated with prepping a memorable meal.
That’s where the right kitchen cart can come in handy. With an added surface space, you can spread out your ingredients, chop up vegetables and mix together your creation without feeling cramped on your countertop. A cart can also serve as the perfect spot to let a cake cool before frosting it or to mix up specialty cocktails. And if you have family members assisting you, you can create an assembly line for transferring meals from the pan to plates and putting the finishing touches on any dish.
Of course, as even the most seasoned chefs know, cooking a large meal means risking a few spills and mishaps. A kitchen cart can help you navigate these challenges by giving you a place to conveniently access trash bags, paper towels, cleaning products and more. To keep towels close at hand for mopping up spills or drying dishes, choose a kitchen cart with a towel rack for quick and easy access.
#2 – Easier Serving with the Right Kitchen Cart
One of the best things about investing in a kitchen cart is the ease of serving your guests once your meal prep is all said and done. Perfect for holiday celebrations and parties for special occasions, you can wheel your kitchen cart out to the dining room to serve your guests with pre-plated meals or a buffet-style menu. You can also roll it out again during dessert time to bring Venetian hour to your living room or set up a mobile coffee spot to refresh your loved ones.
#3 – Add More Storage
By investing in a kitchen cart, you’re not just creating more room to cook when you’re in the thick of meal prep. You’ll also enjoy extra space for everything you need most when you’re in the kitchen. For one, you can enhance the aesthetic of your kitchen’s countertops by using your kitchen cart to house bulky appliances. Blenders, mixers, multicookers and food processors are just a few of the items that you can keep handy without using up too much counter space.
You can also free up valuable drawer space in your kitchen by taking advantage of the extra storage space a kitchen cart can provide. For instance, you can easily store your cooking utensils or barbecuing supplies in accessible drawers that will keep them out of sight until you need them. Or, you can choose to use your kitchen cart’s drawers to keep your take-out menus, coupons and recipes organized. How about keeping your spices and dry rubs in one convenient spot? Whatever you decide to store, you’ll love the look of your clutter-free kitchen when you are done reorganizing your items.
At the same time, with more room on your countertop, you can finally create the sophisticated display of décor you’ve always dreamt of. Whether it’s simply a bowl of fruit that you didn’t have space for previously or a few fresh-scented candles, your family members and guests alike will be impressed with how neat and organized your kitchen has become.
Find Your Dream Kitchen Cart
No matter how you use your kitchen cart, it won’t be long before you wonder how you ever got along without it. If you’ve been dreaming of more counter space, expanded storage or simply easier access to your essential kitchen tools, there’s no better time to choose the perfect cart. You’ll find a wide array of styles to choose from with the features you need to make the most of your available kitchen space. Need more tips for the kitchen and beyond?
