The Ikea Raskog Trolley has been one of their most popular products for quite some time simply because it has so many useful purposes. Pretty much you can purpose this thing for EVERYTHING! You could find a reason for one in almost every single room and for that reason, they are a great little investment for organising your home!
My Raskog Trolley purchase was around the time I was an avid scrapbooker and physical project life fanatic. It was the perfect mobile trolley for keeping my most used items in one place and it meant I could wheel it into the dining room or the lounge room as well, so I wasn’t limited to just crafting in the office. This was before the Netflix obsession where I had to sit in front of the real TV if I wanted to watch something while I worked. How times have changed. Although the Raskog hasn’t!
These days you can get lots of cheaper versions of the Ikea trolley too in places like Kmart or sometimes even Aldi during one of their seasonal catalogues and they all do essentially the same thing. Pretty much it is a 3 tier trolley Ikea developed that is on wheels, perfect for storing things short or long term. They are solid and sturdy and kinda cute.
So when I was deep in the process of overhauling my home office, the scrapbooking supplies came out of my Raskog trolley and I dusted it off, wondering what use I could give it now. Since I have my own business and work from home now, I do a lot of mail outs and have a lot of stuff that seems to spread out around the house at times… mostly because my office has been in bad shape, so these things seemed like the perfect options for my Raskog these days.
This lead me to Google and of course a whole lotta trolley inspiration appeared. It only seemed right to share some of these Raskog ideas with you gorgeous ladies (and gents) so here we go:
31 CREATIVE IKEA RASKOG TROLLEY IDEAS
CRAFT ROOM/CRAFT SUPPLIES
The Raskog cart is literally a crafters dream! So versatile and mobile. Not so ideal for crafting away from home though as they are quite large and heavy.
This is quite similar to how mine used to look, with Project life cards, embellishments, alpha stickers and lots of related craft tools in little boxes. It really is a perfect option for keeping all your project life and pocket scrapbooking supplies in one place, but making them mobile too. The Raskog is pretty much a dream scrapbooking trolley or craft trolley.
Plus a space for all your planner supplies! This has given me a great idea for one of my shelves!

KIDS & BABIES
The Ikea trolley for baby rooms and kid storage is such a wonderful use, mostly because it is mobile and you can move it around with ease. Craft trolleys are pretty much a dream come true for most kids! And they would be a great classroom organisation idea too!
A nursery cart full of baby essentials, nappies or clothes is a great way to put your trolley to use! An Ikea trolley Raskog or similar imitation trolley would be such a cute way to store the stuff you use most right next to your baby change room or in your bedroom so you aren’t moving between rooms so often. It’s nice to make life easier when a new baby arrives!
An Ikea 3 tier trolley would be a stylish addition to any bathroom space, especially if yours doesn’t already have a lot of shelving. You could use it to store toiletries and cosmetics, or maybe as a towel rack. The Ikea Raskog and similar shelving units are indeed versatile to be used all around the home.
Some of these ideas for cleaning supply storage are fantastic! Being able to wheel it around the house to clean each room makes it a great option, although depending on where you keep it and the age of kids at home, if any, you may need to be careful what you put on your Raskog trolley.
