5 Smart Ideas for Kitchen Islands and Carts

We all love seeing those big kitchen islands on home remodeling shows and in magazines. And maybe you’ve even been dreaming about having a kitchen island in your house. But for reasons of time, budget, or space you may or may not be able to house an island in your kitchen.

At TheRTAStore we have over 300 plus choices in kitchen islands and carts that offer functional style and flexibility.

We’ve compiled a list of six smart ideas for kitchen islands and carts that are not only stylish, but also extremely functional. Let’s take a look!

The Culinary Prep Kitchen Cart is approximately 24 inches and features two shelves for storage, a drawer and a space to store knives safely. If you’d prefer to step out of the box with regard to color, Culinary Prep Kitchen Cart is also available in red.

Breakfast Bars

Breakfast Bars
We all know the kitchen is the heart of the home and its where most people tend to gravitate. A really smart idea to incorporate seating into your kitchen is to add a breakfast bar.

Our breakfast bars are made from solid hard wood and veneer construction. They come standard with a drop leaf for additional space or dining and are available in three different finishes, Cherry, Black, and White.

In addition to the three choices in finishes, our breakfast bars offer a variety of seating styles from stools with backs to stools without backs.
