Don't drink? You still might want to get yourself a bar cart. The little guys can offer tons of storage solutions for spaces all around the house. You just have to get a little creative — or steal one of these clever ideas.

1. Coffee Station

Indulge in a vice of a different type by converting your bar cart into a coffee station, like the team at A Beautiful Mess did. You'll love having equipment, mugs, and beans all in the same easy-to-reach place. Plus, it's a great way to display your funky mugs!

2. Nightstand

A bar cart can live in any bedroom — when used as a makeshift nightstand. Just look at this setup from Caitlin at Dash of Darling. Dress the top with a lamp, fresh blooms, a jewelry dish, a book, and your other nighttime supplies. The bottom shelf is ideal for storing extras like slippers, a water carafe, a cozy throw, and more.

3. Bath Storage

Transform your master bath into a spa-like sanctuary by utilizing a bar cart as a treat-yo-self station, like this one from Waiting on Martha. Pile it high with luxurious products and items essential to relaxation — your favorite bubble bath, an exfoliating loofa, tranquil bath salts, and more. Then get ready to say aaaah.

4. Plant Stand

Calling all green thumbs! Not only is this idea from Glitter Guide a fun, unique way to display plants, but it's also practical — a bar cart on wheels allows you to move all the plants at once for optimal sunlight or a quick watering session.

5. Pantry Storage

Remedy a tiny (or non-existent) pantry by stacking IKEA's RASKOG cart high with shelf-stable ingredients. The slim profile makes it perfect for tight spaces (like a city apartment) and a wheelie bottom means you can roll it into the kitchen as you're cooking, then stash it away when you're done.

What clever uses have you come up with for your bar cart?
