I mean, why get a regular kitchen cart when you can get one that comes with saddle-bench stools, right? This feature makes the cart more functional, plus you’ll probably use it more often.

Not to mention, this mobile kitchen island has a distinct modern style. In other words, it looks more expensive than it costs.

Why I Like This Mobile Kitchen Island

Compared to a standard kitchen island or breakfast bar, I like the fact that this unit comes with locking caster wheels. Therefore, you can move it easily and quickly roll it out of the way when not in use.

Kitchen Island Fold Out TableSpeaking of easy storage, the flip-top table can open to double the tabletop space. Then you can rotate the top to make the cart smaller and more compact for storage.

Even when you aren’t using the table for eating or serving, you can still take advantage of the additional storage space it provides. In fact, the modern open storage shelves and cubbies look nice while making items easily accessible at the same time.

Then, whenever you need extra seating or serving table for guests, you can pull out the rolling kitchen island with 2 stools. No card table needed, and this fold-out table looks nicer anyway.

Note: Do you have a small apartment patio or deck that can’t fit a bunch of furniture? This mobile table and chairs lets you entertain in style outdoors when you want, without having to buy permanent outdoor furniture.

Disadvantages of this Rolling Kitchen Cart

First of all, the Winsome kitchen island and stool set is smaller than many kitchen islands, and tables for that matter. Even if you pulled up a third stool, you really don’t have much table space.

Third, it doesn’t really provide good food prep space like some other kitchen islands with granite, steel or butcher block tops. Therefore, if you want more countertop space, this kitchen set won’t do it.

Compact Folding Kitchen Cart with Stool Storage:

Teak Kitchen Island Cart with StoolsAlternatively, Winsome Trading makes a Kitchen Island Cart with Stools that folds compactly into a roll-away table. In fact, the stools fit neatly underneath the folded table when not in use.

This compact drop-leaf 3-piece set only costs about $100. Compare this to the over $200 price tag of the kitchen island stool set above. However, this cheaper version doesn’t provide any under-table storage because it is used for the bar stools.

I guess it really comes down to how much space you have in your kitchen and what you want to use your mobile cart for. If you want more versatility for eating, entertaining and storage, the Phoenix kitchen island with 2 stools may be your best option.

White Kitchen Island with Matching Bar Stools:

The larger Dorel Living Kelsey Kitchen Island with 2 stools measures almost 4 feet long and about 2.5 feet wide. However, it doesn’t have wheels.

Although it doesn’t roll around, it doesn’t mean that you can’t move it. Therefore, if you want a kitchen island that looks a little more “built-in” but is not completely stationary, this version provides a convenient option.

Plus, $450 is much less than what you’d normally pay to build a kitchen island with bar stools, right?
