The best furniture investments are versatile pieces that can work in many rooms. It turns out that’s also good advice when deciding on cheaper pieces, too. Like the $30 RÅSKOG cart from IKEA. This lean, mean, vintage-y turquoise machine will roll itself right into the decor of any room.
RÅSKOG as a nightstand? Sure. It’s the right height for most beds and looks great beside the bed with a few books and magazines stashed inside on The Freelancer’s Fashion Blog.
In the Dining Room
The RÅSKOG makes for a chic vintage-looking bar cart when outfitted with glassware, fresh fruit and bottles of some favorite spirits.
On the Patio
Use RÅSKOG as an occasional party cart, wheeling it out to the patio or deck when entertaining outside. Fill it with plates, cups and napkins like this party on Sweeter than Cupcakes.
In the Bathroom
Limited storage in the washroom? Drop linens, shower stuff and extra paper in the RÅSKOG. Or wheel it out whenever there’s extra houseguests who need extra towels.
In the Baby’s Room
Tiny people use tiny things. New moms and dads can fit all of baby’s essentials into this slim cart to wheel around the house. Fill it with baby clothes. Fill it with supplies to make any area a changing table.
In the Playroom
The deep sides of this cart makes it great as a catchall for toys. Or fill it full of books, for a portable kids’ library.
In the Mudroom
A rolling cart is the ideal solution for holding cleaning supplies. Stash everything in one spot in the mudroom or cleaning closet, then wheel it out to whatever room needs sprucing up.
In the Kitchen
The RÅSKOG is officially billed by IKEA as a kitchen cart. Stash it under the counter as extra storage for plates or an extension to the pantry.
Anywhere You Need Extra Storage
Craft rooms, workbenches, closets the possibilities are endless. The deep shelves on the RÅSKOG can collect nearly anything.
