A designated home is essential for any bottle collection. It should be in your kitchen, at work (or wherever else you might enjoy a nip), and in your home. Bar carts are a great solution to bottle storage problems. They offer storage space and create a sense that you have something to display.
Bar carts are an evolution of the Victorian-era Teatro. They come in many sizes and styles. It cannot be easy to choose the right one, but it depends on personal taste and functional requirements. Mid-century modern is what you want. Look for metal finishes and pushcart handles that are clearly defined. You can go for something more modern in a neutral or industrial palette. There are many styles to choose from, so you can change the look of your space with a bar cart. These are our top picks for any style.
