The IKEA Raskog cart. It’s easy on the eyes, super versatile and best of all – it’s cheap. Ringing in at $30, the Raskog fits in most people’s budgets. It is sold as a kitchen cart, but it can be used for so much more. Here are ten great ways to use it in every room of your house.

  1. I love my RASKOG! I bought it while visiting our daughter in Cali. I packed my clothing inside a small suitcase and placed it inside of a larger one so I’d have a way to bring things home since the nearest IKEA to us is three hours away. I’m hoping to we get to take a road trip too soon so I can buy another one. 
    I use mine in the kitchen, but when I get eletricity to my She-ed and turn it into my studio, it will go in there with at least one more of them. 

  2. Happy to hear that you like your Raskog cart so much @DesigningMom! They’re just so great 🙂

  3. Unfortunately the RASKOG is $70 here in Australia…but I still would have bought one but I never had any space for it – not in the kitchen or the living room. Sewing machine on top and supplies underneath – genius! Next time I’m at Ikea I’ll be getting one.

  4. Yes it’s $70 here in Canada too. Perhaps we should all descend on the US to buy 2 for the price of 1.

  5. Thanks for these great ideas!

    Here in France I am lucky, it is “only” 39.90 euros (which is less than 45 USD).

    I already had one to store all my son’s school stuff but it gave me more ideas for the bathroom.

  6. It’s so interesting to hear how much the Raskog costs in different countries! Are they available in different colors, too, I wonder? Here in the US they come in gray, turquoise and cream….
