They’re there when you need them, they keep you in check and they’re pretty much amazing no matter the situation you find yourself in. You’d think we’re talking about your best friend. Close, but not exactly. We’re talking about storage carts.
They come in varying shapes and sizes and you often see them photographed in one room, for one purpose, but with a little imagination you can really take them anywhere.
Take this simple slim 3-basket wire cart. Perfect for your laundry room, right? Right.
But it doesn’t stop there. With its smooth-rolling wheels, you can simply roll it down the hallway to the bathroom, stock it, and take advantage of the small basket trays for all your bathroom accessories.
Or given its slim frame, stack it with fruit, veggies and the like, and slide it into that oh-so-snug spot in the kitchen, like so.
Storage carts can also serve very specific purposes given their features.
This 10-drawer rolling cart is the perfect home office cart with its thin frame and sleek black drawers. It can hold everything from file folders to pens and pencils, to slightly larger items like that portable desk fan that you only need seasonally.

This entertainment bar cart maneuvers easily through your guests, and it’s ample table top space and basket for the ultimate bar cart storage…
… and post-party cleanup couldn’t be any easier.
Storage carts can also double as craft carts. Their features make them the ideal place to organize all your crafting needs; from beads to popsicle sticks to paper to crafting tools.

This 36-inch kitchen cart with wheels and drawer storage and 65-inch bakers rack with cutting board and hanging storage are the perfect kitchen companions as they allow you to store things vertically, provide a little extra tabletop space and can even be shown off as more of a furniture accessory for the busiest room in the house.
