Everything’s Better with a Bar Cart

A bar cart is one of the most versatile accent pieces you can buy for your home. Not only are they stylish, they also add lots of storage! While I love a bar cart that is set up as a home bar, you can use them in any room of the house.

If you’re always running out of places to put things in your bathroom, a rolling bar cart saves the day.

The mirrored shelves of the Gold Cole 3-Tier Rolling Bar Cart will add a a dash of glam to any bathroom. The top is ideal for bath products, perfume, or even jewelry. Bath Salts, Bubble Bath, and Bath Crystals look great when gathered on a Serving Tray. There’s even enough room left for a pretty Marble Candle, because bathrooms should look and smell good!

With the pretty things up top, the lower two shelves can be put to work. Hide the ugly items you’d like to clear off the counter, like hair tools and supplies, in a decorative basket. The cart handle is the perfect spot to hang a hand towel.

A bar cart can also transform any space into a mini-library. Have you ever added new books to a shelf only to forget them? We use a bar cart for books and magazines that are in queue to be read. Now we know where to look when we’re ready to read.

The bottom shelf of the Gold Lucas File Storage is ideal for incoming magazines. On the top shelf, I kept some space open for two of my favorite things: decor and wine!

The White Enamel Frame showcases a favorite print, while a serving tray doubles as a wine station. A small throw over the handle will make your reading session cozy. What’s better than being curled up with a good book and a glass of wine?

No space for an office or craft room? No problem! A bar cart can corral your paperwork and supplies. Adding a file organizer to the top keeps paperwork accessible, but still looks chic.

Group craft supplies like washi tape and glue on the middle shelf. Try putting them in a modern planter to add even more style. Notebooks, thank you cards, and coloring books work well grouped together in a basket on the bottom shelf.

Don’t forget to put the handle to use. Using simple S-hooks, you can multiply the storage of your cart!

Is your mind spinning with new ways to use a bar cart now? I have one more bonus idea! What if you added one by the front door as a mini-mudroom? Boots could live on the bottom shelf, gloves and hats could go in a basket, and you could even designate a spot for incoming mail!

Next time you have an organizing or storage challenge, a bar cart could be the answer. Try it, you might just like it.
