In the corner of the dining room, tucked away in the breakfast nook or stocked and ready to roll on the back patio, decorative bar carts can be versatile little pieces of organization. Whether you use them as simple piece of decor or a way to organize your entertaining needs, they’re a necessity in any house that loves to host. Let’s face it. After a hard days’ work many of us want to have a little something to take the edge off. In many home designs there is not a space to store liquor and mixers unless you take space away from the pantry or another important storage areas. That is where you can take decorative bar carts and make them into practical storage and a purposeful furnishing in the home. Take a peek at some of our ideas for your home and see if one of these strikes you fancy and inspires!
Display all you entertaining pieces on this glass piece. Not only does it have a built in wine rack, but it’s got enough space to hold all the moving parts to the sips at the party. We love how this cart embodies the contemporary style of a fashion-forward home. It’s also quite functional with its rolling wheels and easy placement.
Three-levels of storage with an espresso finish, this cart has an easy masculine energy with a sophisticated edge. Our favorite part about this pick is the styling. Not only can this be pulled out when dinner parties begin, but it jazzes up the corner in an eclectic, youthful way. Even the bottles of liquor act as contemporary accents.
A bit of a feminine infusion, this bar cart steers clear of the usual shapes. Its glass inserts make it easy to display your drink choices and glasses, while the delicate bones add a touchable, soft charm to the space.
Another choice with a girlish air, this golden cart plays magnificently well with natural lighting. We are loving the placement by the window and would love this beauty set up outside near a pool as well. The mirrored levels also create the illusion of extra space, which is also helpful.
This cart has a bit more of an industrial feel but still very modern in style. Notice the addition of the espresso cups on the bottom rack? Remember bar carts can be used to display fun home accents and other nibbles too besides alcoholic drinks and mixes.
