Types of storage carts

Kitchen storage carts are one of the most popular types of utility carts. These rolling storage carts are commonly made from steel, making them durable and easy to clean or feature a solid wooden countertop that can be used for food preparation or as an extra workspace. Most often, these types of rolling carts also feature a variety of compartments, including drawers, shelves, and hooks. This makes them an ideal choice for storing and organizing a range of kitchen items, such as utensils, pots, pans, and even small appliances. Additionally, the cart's wheels make it easy to move around, allowing you to position it wherever you need it most.

A bar cart is another popular type of rolling cart that is specifically designed to hold and transport beverages and barware. Typically, a bar cart features two or more shelves, with the top shelf being used to hold bottles, glasses, and other barware, while the lower shelves can be used to store additional bottles or other items. Bar carts come in a wide range of styles, from vintage-inspired designs with brass or gold finishes to modern designs made from glass and metal. Some models also feature wheels.

How to organize your utility cart

When organizing your storage cart, make sure to use every inch of space by utilizing the walls with hooks or magnetic strips to hang items. Utilize baskets or boxes to separate items and keep them in place. Clear containers are particularly helpful as they allow you to easily see what's inside. You can also stack containers or use tiered shelving to maximize vertical space.

What is more, group similar items together based on their use or purpose. For example, keep your storage cart organized and prevent clutter from building up by putting all your cleaning supplies together, your art supplies in another section, and your tools in another.

So, whether you need a small hand-held rolling cart for easy mobility or a larger industrial-sized model, their mobility and versatility make them an ideal storage and transport solution in a variety of environments, all the while allowing you to keep items organized and easily accessible.
