Everything is better on wheels, but that doesn't mean everything is practical on wheels, especially if you're budget-minded or not that handy with a wrench. If you're looking for easy-to-use, easy-to-apply caster ideas, here are just a few suitable for any home or office.
Small toolboxes are usually carried by hand, but what if you own something larger? What if your toolbox is too big or too heavy to be hauled? Think about adding a set of wheels. Not only will it increase your mobility around the garage, but it'll also prevent falls, drops and tools scattering everywhere.
All chairs should come with wheels. For one, it prevents damage to your floor by distributing your weight across circular planes rather than four fixed points; even more importantly, it's more ergonomic for your back, neck and shoulders if you can move around freely. If you haven't already, add casters on your chairs. You won't regret it.
Once you've put wheels on your chairs, it's time to up your game and put them on your desks, too. It's a great way to mobilize your home office or study room. It also allows you to enjoy the sunrise from your window without suffering the glare on your computer screen at high noon; simply move your desk to another angle to avoid it.
4. Entertainment Centers
It's great that you've got your televisions and video game consoles set up just the way you like them, but what happens if you need to move them? Putting your entertainment center on a wheeled cart will keep everything mobile and ready to go without forcing you to unhook, unplug and untangle dozens of cords first.
5. Laundry Baskets
Are you tired of pulling muscles in your back by hauling wet clothes around? Put your laundry basket on wheels. You can simply roll your laundry wherever it needs to go, and what's more, you can transport more loads at once when you're not worried about the weight or size limits of what you can carry at one time. You'll get your laundry done twice as fast as normal!
These are just a few simple ways to use furniture casters. Don't let this list hinder your imagination, however; the sky is the limit, so feel free to experiment with wheels to your heart's content.
