Home Styles Natural Designer Utility Cart : Good construction!

It is perfect for what i needed. It took about an hour to put together. Now i have so much more counter space.

Is exactly what the description says it is. . You see a description, order it and then find out the caveats of the product one would think should be a part of the description once you open the box and assemble. That does not apply to this island. Cart can easily stand without the included wheels. Took me about an hour to completely assemble it with a cordless drill to assist with the allen bolts or else it is the ikea method with the included allen wrench. 2/3 of the weight is the top piece so a 2nd person is likely needed to place on top of the assembled cart. With that said, i love the look of it. One thing i have noticed is the stainless steel on top scratches very very easy. I have used it two days and already a copy of nice scratches from just placing objects and then likely a lazy pick up. I guess this is to be expected.

Arrived in excellent packaging and was easy to assemble.

Although i am quite happy with this kitchen cart, it does have some flaws. It took about 21/2 hours to assemble, in part because a couple of the holes and screws didn’t line up well enough, and we had to do a little drilling to get everything to fit properly. The fit of one of the drawers isn’t perfectly straight, but that’s not particularly noticeable, and there isn’t any problem with opening and closing it. The stainless steel top has scratched very easily, but i expect that once it’s scratched all over, it will take on a nicely used patina, as our stainless kitchen sink has. The cart itself is very sturdy, the wheels lock easily, and it’s the right size for our kitchen.

  • Well made, sturdy kitchen island!
  • Great kitchen cart
  • Is Exactly What the Description Says it is.

Home Styles Natural Designer Utility Cart with Stainless Steel Top

  • Stainless steel top
  • Solid hardwood construction
  • Natural finish
  • Adjustable shelf
  • Two drawers

This cart is very nice, high quality for the price, holds together, has a nice surface, can store lots of stuff, and is relatively easy to put together, but that’s not why i’m writing this review. We bought this cart a little more than 2 years ago and recently had a part attached to the bottom shelf break. I went on the home styles website and filled out a part replacement form for the bottom shelf, not expecting much. I got an email the next day telling me that my replacement part was in the mail, and it showed up a few days after that. I replaced it, and everything is back to normal. You don’t see that kind of response very often, and i just wanted to say that i’ll definitely look into buying products from this company again.

A piece but i since got the replacement and like it. We always had one growing up so. When i first ordered this it was missing a piece but i since got the replacement and like it. We always had one growing up so i decided to get one for my own house. It was fairly easy to install and rolls pretty well but the drawers get stuck sometimes which can be a bit annoying. It looks amazing though so we decided to keep it. At least the kids can’t get in the drawers.

Excellent kitchen cart/island. This arrived on time and in excellent condition, packed very will in a heavy-weight cardboard box. The cart is made of hard wood with a stainless steel top and is very sturdy and good looking. However, the instructions for assembling it were not in the box so we looked them up on the internet and were able to use them on my fire tablet to get the assembly done. Once we got the instructions, it took my husband about an hour to put it together, with my help. If the instructions had been included, i would rate this 5 stars.

It looks and functions great. Assembly was pretty easy, but it had a lot of pieces. Helpful to have a second person put the top on because it’s pretty heavy. Once assembled it is an impressive kitchen cart. It looks and functions great.

Very high quality, good-looking piece. This is a very high quality piece. Very heavy, solid, and well-engineered. Assembly instructions were very clear and pre-drilled holes were precisely located. Once assembled the unit weighs nearly 100 pounds but it rolls very smoothly unless you lock the 2 rear wheels. I was not compensated for this review, in case anyone wonders.

Reasonably priced + high-quality = purchase with confidence. We just moved to a new place and we needed more prep space in our medium-sized kitchen and decided on this piece based on the reviews. We received it yesterday, and assembled it right away. Assembly was fairly easy; all the small parts were packaged separately and labeled individually which saved a lot of hassle from comparing them visually with the instruction manual. They even provided extras, just in case – very considerate. The only challenge we encountered was while assembling the drawers. One of the drawers’ base part were a little too thick for the side grooves so sliding it in the side parts were almost impossible; we had to force it in (thankfully without any damage). It looks really good and feels really sturdy. The stainless steel top is of high quality, the drawers roll in and out smoothly, and the wheels are smooth too. It does live up to its expectations.

Great space saver and clean design. I can’t say much for the assembly because i had someone else assemble it. I just use it, and it’s great. It’s the perfect size and very study. When i mean sturdy, i mean i had my toddler niece climbing and hanging on the second shelf. Didn’t budge or collapse, which was a plus for both of us. I have a small kitchen, so i needed something that could provide storage and a surface for prepping food. We’ve had this for a few months and it’s held up really well. Would definitely recommend this due to the quality of its construction and overall design.

Assembly required, but well worth it in quality & price. Just received my new utility cart package, which we ordered to supplement the counter space in our kitchen. At first, when i saw the somewhat beat-up cardboard and additional heavy taping around the edges, i had a bit of trepidation that perhaps this item had been previously purchased & returned; so i checked to ensure all the parts were there. Some of the styrofoam packing was a bit worse for wear, but it looks like it did its job, i haven’t found a single scratch on any of the parts, & the hardware appears to be in the original packing & of good quality (nickel finish handles & towel bar. ) i am very impressed with the quality of the parts: with the exception of the drawer bottoms which are pressed wood, every single wooden part is solid hardwood (oak?), with a nice clear finish. The locking casters are very heavy duty, which is a good thing as the whole table weighs about 70 lbs. There is definitely a fair bit of assembly required, which i don’t mind (i feel like a kid with a new jigsaw puzzle) but which might dismay some people. But i’m sure shipping it disassembled is what allows the company to ship it all the way from thailand, undamaged, & still give us a very reasonable price for this high quality piece of furniture.

Scratches on stainless steel part. The wooden part of the cart is nice but i was not happy with the stainless steel top as it had scratches on it right out of the box and continues to get more as we use it. Hopefully a stainless steel scratch kit will help but i am not happy with it over all because of the scratches.

Just the right amount of space and storage. Great for additional prep room and holding a lot of items for a small kitchen. Use it next to free standing range where i had no counter space, or area for easy access to pot, pans and lids.

It is perfect for what i needed. It took about an hour to put together. Now i have so much more counter space.

It is sturdy, made of hardwood and is easy to assemble. This is the second a single of these i have obtained. 1st just one was many years ago for a seasonal rental dwelling. I really don’t know how a lot of of these i probably sold because so quite a few persons requested wherever i purchased it. But, it is sturdy, manufactured of hardwood and is simple to assemble. Now i have this a single for my own kitchen area. Quite a few seem-a-likes of this item but do your study and detect that some of them weigh thirty-forty significantly less since they are created of comfortable wood and lighter components.

When assembled, this cart appears to be like pretty great. I want to mention that my two drawers are not even. The correct drawer sits about 3/8-1/2′ reduced on its remaining aspect than the still left drawer does. I am sure this can be adjusted, which i will get to, but i needed to stage that out. It is really also crucial to observe that the metallic top has some sharp edges around the bottom. If you happen to be involved about this, all i did was set a thick bead of very hot glue alongside the sharp edges. It really is not noticeable unless of course i sit on the floor in front of the cart and seem for it, so it is genuinely not a large deal to me. It was a very little tough to get collectively, as nicely.

Really delighted with this obtain. The box was conquer up but anything within was safeguarded. No lacking pieces and seriously appreciated the fact that they noted any excess pieces they incorporated. Wheels are ‘soft’ and glide properly on hardwood with no making me fear about scratches like other less costly ‘harder’ wheels. Hint: if you might be performing in a compact area put jointly the drawers to start with. Takes treatment of a large amount of the lesser parts that get in the way. Took a star off thanks to some minimal blemishes (and i can’t consider a fifty percent star) and the lengthy record of ‘don’t dos’. Only a make a difference of time until finally a scratch the top, but for the cost it is a solid 4.

This cart is extremely awesome, large quality for the value, holds together, has a great surface, can retailer loads of things, and is somewhat uncomplicated to set collectively, but which is not why i am composing this assessment. We purchased this cart a very little additional than two yrs back and not long ago experienced a part connected to the bottom shelf crack. I went on the home styles internet site and filled out a portion substitution kind for the bottom shelf, not expecting significantly. I obtained an email the following day telling me that my alternative element was in the mail, and it confirmed up a several times following that. I changed it, and almost everything is again to typical. You do not see that variety of response pretty typically, and i just required to say that i am going to surely glimpse into purchasing merchandise from this enterprise once more.

Appears to be fantastic but be cautious with the floor. Was quick to assemble and seems good. The floor scratches very quickly. Mine had numerous scratches inside the to start with couple of weeks.

We a short while ago moved to a new home that has a serious lack of counter room and cabinets. We ordered this cell island as an interim until eventually we rework. Our outlets not set up still after our transfer so i was a little bit bummed we experienced to commit cash on a thing i could transform out in a working day. I have to confess it was dollars effectively expended. This is not heirloom good quality things but in good shape, end and product are excellent. It went alongside one another with no challenge. There is a single spare of every fastener so when a person rolls under the fridge you are alright. Directions are distinct and concise.

    Plenty of room on bottom shelf for my crock pots and deep boiler pot. Top shelf holds my bake pans and dishes. Drawers easily hold utinsel organizer with room extra on side, other drawers has room for my smaller, shorter baking utensils. Drawers are of good quality. The stainless steel top is very nice, good quality. Two of the strong wheels lock, keeping it steady and in place.

    I get a lot of compliments on this piece. The stainless steel makes it pop. I’ve had it over a year with no issues. I use it as a coffee station and a spot to place food i’m taking out of the fridge.

    Other reviews mention scratches – the top does scratch a bit easily, but nothing to get worked up about. Use a cutting board & you’ll be fine.

        I love the size, look and feel of this cart, but the top scratches so easily. I have had it nearly 6 months and the top of it is a mess. Not happy with the quality of it.

      We recently moved to a new home that has a serious shortage of counter space and cabinets. We ordered this mobile island as an interim until we remodel. Our shops not set up yet after our move so i was a bit bummed we had to spend money on something i could turn out in a day. I have to admit it was money well spent. This isn’t heirloom quality stuff but fit, finish and material are excellent. It went together with no problem. There is one spare of each fastener so when one rolls under the fridge you’re ok. Directions are clear and concise.

    Everything was well labeled and the pictures made sense. When you do the drawers, the up arrow means to keep the arrow up when assembling. You build the drawer upside down. They earn you about laying a blanket down while assembling. I didn’t and did put a divet in the wood, but it was on a part that doesn’t show. I left the wheels on because i wanted to be able to move it around. You could easily leave the wheels off for more stability.

    You will not feel ripped off. The labeling of assembly parts is very well done. Easy to make sure you have all you need. I am 5’11 and my husband is 6’5. For once i have something the right height, width and depth. We live in queens in a 70 year old building.
