Why I Recommend Adding a Bar Cart

Why You Should Get a Bar Cart - A Detailed Palette

When it comes to picking furniture, it is really important to invest in pieces that you'll love for a long time and get a lot of use out of. With that in mind, many of you may not immediately think of a bar cart, but I am so glad that I added this to my apartment. While bar carts have been trendy and definitely of-the-moment, they are also incredibly versatile and good to have on hand

Why I love it:

It's such a stand out piece that people gravitate towards: I really love the circle design on my bar cart as well as this makes it even more unique than some of the other options out there. Of course the gold/bronze finish is nothing new, but it definitely adds some polish and warmth to the space, especially when set against the stark white walls.

It offers lots of storage, keeping things incredibly neat, without appearing bulky: a bar cart is one of the most fun pieces of furniture to style - it all comes down to your tastes and your needs. 

It makes entertaining just a bit easier: with everything already set out, you don't have to do nearly as much prep work. Plus, it's super easy to roll around to wherever you may need it to be. I've moved this bar cart around quite a bit, changing things up based on layout, only to find that it works wonderfully just about anywhere that I put it. I am going to be hosting a murder mystery party at the end of the month, and I already know that this piece is going to be vital when it comes to offering guests food and drink.

Another great thing to point out - there are many affordable options out there now that bar carts are becoming more and more popular. You can also always check out thrift shops and antique stores as well to find one that has more vintage appeal.
