We can clean, stock, and style our kitchens as much as we want — but actually gaining more physical square footage is an entirely different design beast. When your food space is a tiny one, the solution to opening up those cramped countertops to floors and every limited inch in between comes in the form of a cart (so you can put the sledgehammer down).

Kitchen carts are the less sexy, but much savvier cousin of bar carts; with multi-capable storage abilities for everything from food to cookware, rolling wheels for easy access, and compact structures built to accommodate the smallest of spaces. Whether you live in a poorly laid out home or a one-room studio apartment, we’ve lined up the streamlined units to help expand your kitchens (or lack thereof).

Scroll ahead to shop the styles, from gold-wired basket stacks to bamboo-wood boxes and more.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. The product details reflect the price and availability at the time of publication. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
