Disadvantages of this Kitchen Cart:

One downside of this piece is that the cabinetry only comes in the distressed off-white finish. Therefore, if you have bright white cabinets, this island may not fit in.

Another reason why you may not like this kitchen island is that it doesn’t really double as a breakfast bar. In other words, it doesn’t have a side table that flips up (like this one) so you can use it as a table.
