Bar Cart Stylin’

Bar carts are a newish accessory that just won’t quit. Both functional and fabulous, the bar cart wheels around my favorite things: style and alcohol. YAAAAS! Another added bonus, organization. Yes, this stylin’ beauty brings order and is a perfect solution to display your favorite objects that may be gathering dust (this includes us Apartment Dwellers). AND these rollin’ lookers can add flavor to any space: kitchen, living, dining or office. 

Let us explore bar cart or bar tray inspiration and the top objects to add style on top of wheeling style (beyond the obvious accessory: alcohol).  

Object 1: Glass Decanters: Perhaps you are semi-OCD like me and want a more uniform look versus random bottles of all liquids, shapes and sizes. Decanters are an awesome solution to satisfy the weird tendencies of our brains.

Object 2: Glassware and Dishes: Bring you favorite pieces out into the light. Bar carts are a great storage solution allowing you to showcase your dishes, ice buckets and glassware which now lies hidden in dim kitchen cupboards.

Object 5: Flower Power: I cannot lie, one of my favorite bar cart decorations is a vase full of flowers. There is something about the elegance of a shining cart carry flowers on its delicate glass surface…funky fresh.

Another Tip: Remember the bar cart/bar tray is an accessory in itself so make sure it reflects the look and feel of a space. Because of its size and nature, this piece is undoubtedly going to attract the eye so its effects should be additive. With so many cart options, take the opportunity to choose one on theme whether you want sleek and contemporary, formal dining or a rustic feel with large wheels and spokes like a good ole’ western. Here are some good examples that fit right into their habitat:
