The Versatility of a Rolling Utility Cart
A great space saving and organizational tool for your home is a rolling utility cart. Rolling utility carts can be used in any room in your house and put to a variety of uses. Part of the versatility comes from the fact that there are many different styles of rolling utility carts. Another part of the versatility is that you can put anything you want in them. The utility cart can provide extra storage space, extra table top or counter space, and help to keep your home organized. It is a good idea to invest in this piece of furniture in multiple rooms of your house.
There are many different kinds of rolling utility carts including, kitchen utility carts, tool utility carts, storage basket utility carts, utility carts with drawers, utility carts with shelves, utility carts with coolers, and the list goes on and on. Kitchen utility carts are one of the most common. The top of these rolling carts are usually covered with some kind of flat surface to serve as extra counter space. The space underneath can be set up in a variety of ways. Some rolling kitchen utility carts have shelves and others have baskets. My kitchen cart is a 3 tier rolling utility cart where I store extra paper products like paper plates, cups, napkins, paper towels, etc. so that they are out of the way. The storage space underneath is really customized in terms of what you want to do with the space. I have even seen kitchen rolling utility carts with built in coolers on the bottom so that you can keep things cold if you decide to use the cart for serving food in another room.
Another popular location where you are likely to find rolling utility carts, is the garage. Craftsman makes a number of tool utility carts that roll around that are perfect for storing smaller tools and building supplies like nails, screws, etc.. These rolling tool utility carts also have a sturdy surface on top that can serve as a work surface for small projects. Some even come equipped with a table vice like a workbench. A heavy duty rolling utility cart with two or three shelves is also a common tool found in garages and work spaces. Some businesses also use them to move around mail, packages, or maintenance tools.
People who live in major cities and need to walk to and from the grocery store can put rolling utility carts to use as well. The style that comes in handy here is the type that is one large basket. The most convenient ones fold up when not in use. That way they are easy to carry to the store in an unobtrusive manner. Then you can open them up and carry your groceries home without having the handles of the bags dig into your palms. The basket design is also good for storing toys or sporting equipment. Your kids can push or pull the carts around as they pick up toys. Alternatively, you can move the cart close to the door when your kids come home from sporting events and then out of the way when it is not in use.
Professionals use rolling utility carts in their work as well. Emergency medical personnel or traveling doctors can store medical equipment and supplies in them. Mail carriers can use them to carry large amounts of post. The uses for rolling utility carts are endless. If you have something to store and it would be convenient for it to be portable, then these pieces of furniture are great solutions.
