Optimized storage trolleys that open up your small kitchen

We can clean, store and style our kitchens as often as we want – but actually gaining more physical space is a whole different design beast. If your dining room is tiny, the solution is to wagon open those cramped countertops to the floor and every limited inch in between (so you can put the sledgehammer down). Kitchen carts are the less sexy, but much more savvy cousin of bar carts. With versatile storage options for everything from food to cookware, rolling wheels for easy access and compact structures for the smallest of spaces. Whether you live in a poorly designed house or a one-room studio apartment, we’ve lined up the streamlined units to add to your kitchens (or lack thereof). Scroll on to shop for the styles, from gold-wired basket stacks to bamboo wooden boxes and more. At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world. All of our market picks are selected and curated independently by the editorial team. The product details reflect the price and availability at the time of publication.
