Portable carts are the ideal solution for homes that lack space for a large, built-in kitchen island. But they can be so much more than that. Custom cabinets offer a wide variety of storage solutions and serve a wide variety of needs, and that includes portable islands and carts. Here, we’ll offer ideas and inspiration, with clever uses for a portable cart, regardless of your kitchen needs and square footage.
A Cart For Getting Crafty
You dream of a designated craft room, but in reality, you craft anywhere and everywhere throughout your home. Does this sound familiar? If so, get clever—and crafty—by using a portable cart for all your artsy odds and ends. Makers can find inspiration wherever they go, and they are known for making the most of whatever they have on hand. Keep craft supplies at the ready with a rolling cart, like this Roots Rack Industrial Cart, and go from the kitchen, to the TV room, to the bedroom whenever the mood to create strikes.
A Cleaning Cart That Simplifies Chores
Make spring cleaning a lot less of a chore by rolling your supplies from room to room. Keeping all the different spray bottles, sponges, scrub brushes, cloth wipes and other essentials all in one spot and easily accessible makes polishing, scouring and dusting a lot less work. Doing so not only saves you time, but it also spares you the effort of having to carry everything around the house as you go about your tasks.
A Mobile Bar Cabinet For Parties
A portable cart can serve as a mini home bar, even when you have built-in bar room cabinetry at home. Imagine being able to easily move the party outside to the backyard patio or simply to another room in the house. It’s possible when you have a mobile bar cabinet. Some of our portable carts even come with stools that tuck away inside when not in use, like this cherry cart with a black granite top and upholstered saddle stools, so friends can pull up a seat right at the bar when you are mixing up cocktails.
A Coffee Cart For Home Baristas
If you start your day with a hot cup of Joe, enjoy an afternoon latte pick-me-up, and end your day with an after-dinner cappuccino, a coffee cart will help you fully realize your home barista aspirations. Many of our portable kitchen carts come with all wood cabinets to store coffee beans and grinders, mugs, sugar, flavored syrups, stirrers and other necessary items on adjustable shelves behind closed doors. They also feature countertops for home brewing appliances, plus towel bars for easy clean up of coffee drips and spills.
A Cart For School Supplies
If you homeschool or have distance-learning students, having a home office or multipurpose workspace is a must. Still, not everyone has the square footage for home office cabinetry, and if you do, it’s not always easy (or possible) for telecommuting parents to turn over this valuable area to their kids. That is why many will opt for a simple desk in the child’s bedroom, but having a portable cart for school supplies can give your little student the freedom to learn wherever they feel comfortable, from the kitchen island to the TV room sofa.
