A microwave cart is a space saving cabinet that has a generous shelf to place a microwave oven. Such microwave carts come in handy in small kitchens where space is quite limited. Placing an appliance like a microwave in another area other than the kitchen table would be a practical idea, because it makes this area available for other uses such as meal preparation, and cooking itself.
Microwave carts usually come with multiple shelves that create additional storage areas. These storage areas are good for bowls, cups and maybe even kitchen towels. In a limited space, these benefits are greatly appreciated.
Several variations exist for microwave carts. When choosing one for your home you will come across products made of wood, metal or even both materials.
Some carts will come with wheels on the base for easy transportation, while others may come with a standard base that restricts movement.
Some carts are specially designed for installation in corners, that further helps to maximize limited space.
Microwave carts are available in a number of variations. The base of the kitchen cart can be a natural light wood finish which can feature open storage areas and locking casters, towel bars, cabinets, and even drawers. Other variations can be convenient and practical; with kitchen carts that have a hutch featuring an open shelf and a closed storage section. These carts can be made of natural maple laminate finish constructed of MDF (stands for Medium Density Fiberboard) and “Particle Board” that ships ready-to-assemble. Some microwave carts can feature a special design on the side for a spice rack that allows you to easily organize all your spices or maybe even a wine rack to easily store your favorite bottles.
Microwave carts are hugely beneficial to homes with limited space, but are also useful if you just want to organize your kitchen, even if you have enough space.
The additional shelves and cabinetry that they provide are of immense value to a home that doesn’t have a lot of shelf space. Most kitchens and kitchenettes are designed to facilitate meal preparation but fail at taking into consideration where to store the articles used to prepare these same meals: the bowls, spoons, pots and pans used for cooking to name a few.
Surprisingly as well, you will find that the cost for a microwave cart would be quite reasonable. The cost is easily justified though by the benefits that they provide.
When selecting a microwave cart, consider the following factors before making a decision. Even though these units are small pieces of furniture they end up making a huge impact on the overall flow of the household so try to make a conscious selection based on the aesthetic appeal and sophistication that it will contribute. The variations of color and design allow for you to easily select one that fits into the existing décor.
