Move your bar carts out of the way, the kitchen cart is here to take over.
It's no secret that bar carts have slowly but surely taken over the world and by the world, we mean our Instagram feed. The trend first emerged back in March 2018 and since then, it's gone on to prove that no one (not even Jennifer Lawerence) can resist the power of a bar cart.
Owning a bar cart, especially a well-curated one, is what was considered adulting at its finest in 2019. What started as a popular staple in mid-century households held strong as one of the most wanted home accessories in 2019 thanks to its storage versatility, DIY drink-mixing convenience, and overall power as a stylish décor piece.
Bar carts became so popular that they caused a literal frenzy last month with people queuing outside Penneys outlets across the country at 6am just to get their hands on an Insta-worthy gold spherical cart for a mere €50.
And while bar carts still very much have a presence on Instagram (we struggle to scroll through our feed without seeing at least eight), it seems as though there's a new interiors trend coming to take over our feeds. Meet the kitchen cart.

Keep this ultra-slim storage cart stocked with oils, spices, or anything you need close at hand as you cook. Moveable hooks can be used for hanging items, and casters on the base make it easy to pull out for use and store when finished. Great for the bathroom and kitchen. TOWER Rolling Kitchen Storage Cart
