Butcher block kitchen carts are a smart way to gain more work room in your kitchen. Butcher block is famous for its natural anti-bacterial properties as well as for its ability to keep knives sharp. It’s also easy to maintain. Any gouges from knives can be easily sanded away. Butcher block is as likely to be found in private homes today as it is in butcher shops and professional kitchens. But a butcher block kitchen cart provides more than just a durable work surface. These types of butcher block islands and carts also add extra storage with shelving and sometimes feature specialty items such as wine racks and towel racks. Plus they can be wheeled out of sight when they are not being used.
