StyleWell Glenville Kitchen Cart

If a lack of storage and prep space has your kitchen feeling inadequate, try adding a kitchen cart. We’re fans of the Stylewell Glenville cart, which offers two shelves, two drawers, a towel rack, storage hooks, and a butcher block surface on the top. Since it’s on wheels, you can move it to wherever you need to—and then push it out of the way when you’re finished prepping.
