Bottles, glasses and snacks look great on any bar cart. But you know what looks great on a bar cart too? Towels in the bathroom, plants in the kitchen or sunroom, or books and small lamps in the bedroom as a nightstand. They’re the chameleon of furniture. Versatility is perhaps the best answer to why you should have a bar cart in your home!
STYLING YOUR BAR CART
Stylists love bar carts because it allows them to show their personality and creativity. Load up your cart with antiques you found at the local flea market, bar tools, decanters, your favorite cocktail recipe books, pretty liquor bottles…You get the idea. Serving style is as important as serving delicious drinks. Make your bar cart all about what you love and truly be a focal point in your home.
Choose An Aesthetic
Even though you’ll find every opportunity to roll it around, you’ll want to find a place for your bar cart to reside most of the time. Decorate your mini-bar area with whimsical artwork or a decorative mirror above. Place it next to a comfortable armchair and put a plant next to it for a softer look.
Create A Display
Style the cart with your favorite bottles, decanters, glassware and bar tools. Be sure to include bottles of different height, proportion and color. Add a carafe, a shaker, and some drink accessories - think sliced limes, olives or mint.
Leave Space for Flowers
Along with displaying your favorite statement glassware and bottles of spirits, don't forget to add natural elements to your cart. Such as a fun vase of flowers, a bowl of citrus for garnish, or even a plate of snacks like walnuts or candies. The addition of living things feels intentional and will do wonders in making your cart feel like it's a part of your room's design.
Style With The Seasons
A few simple changes can transform your bar cart to adhere to the seasons. You can create a Thanksgiving bar cart with seasonally appropriate drinks, garnishes and decors. It's sure to be a fun element to the party.
If an overly-styled look isn't for you, here's an idea: confine the bottle to a corner and use the rest of the cart to subtly display beautiful books and knick-knacks to create a minimalist decor.
