Choosing a Bar Cart
When purchasing a drinks cart, there are a few factors to consider. Choose a size that won’t take up too much space in your house. Consider how many shelves for storage you want for your favourite wines and glasses. Additional compartments for an ice bucket or garnishes should be considered to enable you to serve in flair.
There is a range of styles, so you’ll need to consider the material and design and how it will connect to your interior design concept.
A gold bar cart, for example, would definitely seem out of place in a country or rustic-inspired setting. While gold bar carts are popular (particularly on Instagram) for bringing a touch of luxury to any area, don’t discount a more minimalist or vintage-inspired drinks trolley. And, if you’re throwing a summer garden party, consider investing in an outdoor bar cart.
