The bar cart is the next best thing to sliced bread. It basically is an extra piece of furniture that you can just push into a room and set up whatever you need it for. If you’re throwing a party, you have an automatic bar, food station etc… However in this post, I’m going to show you how to use the bar cart in your everyday life. I’m going to decorate my bar cart 3 different ways and show you how it functions in my day to day activities.
We use our outdoor space a lot for relaxing and entertaining. That is where we spend most of our time from spring to fall. We are definitely the kind of couple that has more fun outside around the pool rather than hosting a dinner around the dining room table. So it just makes since to use the bar cart around the outdoor entertaining area. There are plenty of ways I can use this to help me organize some outdoor supplies.
You may not think the bathroom is an appropriate place for a bar cart, but it really is the perfect place to hold all your essential items for a relaxing soak in the bath. Here I was able to hold items such as my towels, bath salts, music, reading material. and wine so nothing would get wet or ruined while I was in the tub. Then you can reach all your items and they aren’t placed on the bathroom floor. Plus it dresses the bathroom up so nicely.
I leave my bar cart in the kitchen when I’m not using it elsewhere. It holds decorative items that go along with seasonal decor. This is one of my favorite things to decorate for the changing seasons. Fresh flowers are a constant on the bar cart. I love fresh flowers and on a weekly basis change those out. There is just something cheery about having flowers in the kitchen greeting you in the morning. I am not a morning person and it just kicks off my day with a little something special.
In the kitchen, I’m using the bar cart as a coffee station. I have my Keurig set up with my favorite coffee mugs. I like to keep this set up because it’s practical and makes sense for weekend guests. They know exactly where to get their morning coffee and they can help themselves. I love things that make life easier. Especially when I’m entertaining.
Of course there are other uses for your bar cart. You can use it as a bar, a brunch set up, and a party backdrop and so much more. It really is a versatile piece that has been a great investment for me. If you’re looking to purchase one, I hope you got some great decorating ideas today.
