A small bar cart can have a big impact on your living space. Not only does it deliver instant glamour and visual appeal, it allows you and your guests to make yourselves a nice drink whenever you’d like one. There’s nothing quite like a well-styled bar cart to add some old world sophistication to your dining room furniture. Use these tips to turn yours into a posh piece of home decor.
Just like when you’re designing a space in your home, styling a bar cart begins with a plan. Use trays to help you divide the cart into zones. Dedicate each zone to a specific essential, like bottles or glassware. If you have a lot of glassware, pull out your prettiest pieces to be set on display while storing the rest to avoid a cluttered look. When you know you’ll have guests over, add a vase with fresh flowers or a bowl of limes or lemons.
Remember to stay true to your style and taste. Dress the bar cart up with your favorite treasures: antique glasses, funky cocktail napkins or elegant liquor bottles. If you don’t have a large amount of liquor or glassware to display, use the bottom shelf to display pretty books or collectibles.
