The ubiquitous rolling utility cart. We love them, but we sometimes wonder what to do with them, amiright? Here are 3 ways to use a rolling utility cart that work great in my home and just might in yours too.
First, let’s briefly discuss where you can purchase a utility cart: just about anywhere. The carts shown in this post came from IKEA and from Michaels. They’re at Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, Wayfair, World Market, Walmart, Office Depot, you get the idea. They’re everywhere, so there must be something to this trend!
1 – Guest Bath
Thoughtful touch for overnight guests
The bathroom is the perfect place to openly store items your overnight guests will need. And they won’t feel compelled to embark on a treasure hunt through your cabinets to find the necessities. Win-win.
2 – Makeup Vanity
This tiered rolling cart is perfect for holding your cosmetics, hair products, and tools so you’re not searching through various drawers and cabinets. Whether you keep these items in your powder room or at a proper vanity, it is always nice to reclaim surface space. Now you can display your pretty perfumes rather than your curling wand and blending sponge!
Makeup stays together and is ready to roll
3 – Not Your Average Reading Nook
If you’re a reader, you know–it’s not so much an indulgence but a necessity to have a cozy reading spot. Take it one step further and make that same space your reading/journaling nook. The bottom tier holds books for reading; the middle tier holds journals and books on writing; and the top tier holds a cup of pens and leaves space for your morning coffee or evening wine. Did I just check into a luxury hotel?
