Kitchen Trolley

Maybe BBQs are not your thing or you just prefer entertaining inside. In that case, you could extend your kitchen bench by adding a kitchen trolley or it doubles up as an island. This will give you more room while preparing food or room to serve your delicious dishes. And because it’s a trolley you can even wheel it to your dining area laden with yummy items instead of carrying one dish at a time or trays.

Neat tip: Keep your kitchen bench height in mind when building your trolley. It would be ideal to have it close to the same height.
