How to style bar carts

There's no doubt that bar carts have taken off in a big way recently. With so many shapes, sizes and finishes to choose from, they're perfect for those awkward corners and can be easily moved around as your needs change. They're not only a trendy way to store your beautiful barware and favourite tipples but have the versatility to work as plant displays and, reading nook surfaces and bedside tables as well. Check out our top tips for styling a classic bar cart to perfection.

Placement

First, think about what space your bar cart is going in and where you intend to station it along a wall. Place it in an awkward corner for a standalone vignette or use it to fill up some empty space on a feature wall. One of our favourite ways to style a bar cart is to position it below a focal piece of wall art or an ornate mirror. Don't forget about lighting. Wall sconces give a dramatic spotlight effect, a lamp creates soft mood lighting and a statement pendant light amps up the drama.

Glassware

Curate the decanters and glassware you display to reflect your personal style and the style of your home. Group like glasses for clean, organised shelves, leaving room to show off gorgeous bottles of your favourite spirits or mixers. If cocktails are your drink of choice, save some time by pouring a batch in a decorative drink dispenser, displayed on the top shelf.

"Crystal stemware will suit an elegant home; coloured glassware will shine in a retro or vintage-inspired space, while simple clear glassware will work well in a neutral or minimalist home."

Accessories

No bar cart is complete without a touch of personality, so add decor that expresses your style. Curate a colour palette and style within this for a cohesive look. If greenery is your thing, incorporate a vase with fresh or faux flowers or a trailing plant in a beautiful pot to play with height. Add a touch of freshness and make cocktails a breeze with a decorative bowl of vibrant citrus fruits. For a stylish touch that also means you don't have to keep trekking to the freezer, add a gleaming ice bucket.
