White Kitchen Island with Granite Top – 6 Pros & Cons

Do you want a more sophisticated-looking mobile kitchen island? Home Styles makes a white kitchen island with a granite top that adds a lot of style. Yet, it doesn’t cost much more than other islands on wheels…

Rolling White Kitchen Island with Granite Top

The cabinetry has a bright white color. Therefore, if you are trying to match bright white cabinets in your kitchen, you’re in luck!

Note: By the way, if you want to use this cart without the casters, you can. The kitchen island measures 32″ tall without the casters attached.

4 Reasons Why I Like this Kitchen Island:

1. Efficient Design

First of all, I like the size and shape of this island. At 4 feet wide, this unit provides a long enough surface for 2 people to work at.

In addition, the 1.5 foot depth allows you to easily push the island against a wall when not in use. It is not so deep that it will significantly protrude from the wall.

2. Plenty of Storage

Second, this cart provides lots of storage with 4 drawers and 2 cabinets (each with an adjustable shelf). With doors that shut, you can conceal clutter.

Open shelving can look nice and make contents easy to access and view. However, it can tend to look messy if you have lots of items that aren’t neatly stacked.

3. Bonus Accessories

Third, the side rack and hanging rods offer additional convenience. Hang towels, utensils and other gadgets. Store commonly-used seasonings within reach so you don’t have to go look for them while preparing meals.

4. Multiple Color Options

Fourth, you can choose from several different finishes/colors. In fact, this island is part of the “Create-a-Cart” product line. Choose from:

2 Reasons You May Not Want to Buy It

1. I find that rolling kitchen carts are convenient because you can roll them outdoors and use them by the grill. The upscale look of this piece makes me want to leave it indoors for fear of getting meat drippings and grease all over it. I would choose something like an easy-to-clean stainless steel island instead.

2. I also wish that this island had a flip-up table because it would double the workspace area. In addition, you could use it as a breakfast bar with stools like this one.
