I decided to get a bar cart a couple of months ago. We entertain quite a bit and I figured it would be the perfect accessory for this purpose. Bar carts can be a great way to add style to your home without breaking the bank.
After coming across several options in my day-to-day activities, I knew I wanted either a gold/brass or rattan cart. I know these are two completely different styles but I like to mix it up.
Once I figured out what colors I was going for, I went on a hunt. Here are some of the carts that sparked my interest.
This square tiered gold cart was my pick. I love that it has three shelves,as most of the ones I sawhad two. The extra shelf allows me to also use it as storage space for extra dishes, especially when we are serving a sit-down meal.
I recently hosted a Galentine party for my friends. It was wonderful time and two of them ended up purchasing the same bar cart. It’s great quality for under $200 and I think it looks better in person. .
I also have fun styling it for other seasons.
- Other ways it can be used around the house. For folks with smaller spaces, it might be a great stylish accessory piece to hold extra dishes etc.
- How it fits into your home. I probably would have chosen a rattan cart or a kid-friendlier option if I was on the market a few years ago.
- Where you plan on using it. If you are more accustomed to entertaining outside, having an all weather cart might be your safest bet. There are tons of options.
There are so many affordable options out there. A great time to buy would be around Memorial Day, Independence Day, and the Christmas seasons. Several retailers I considred offered great sales and additional discounts during these times.
That’s it for today. Have fun bar-carting!
