5 bar carts you’ll want for your living room

best bar carts

Adding a bar cart or drinks trolley is a way to instantly add character to a living space, transforming your home into something you might see on an inspirational interiors Instagram account. And this innocent piece of furniture adds style in a way that doesn't require drilling into walls or taking up a huge amount of floor space.

Plus, they're useful. They offer storage solutions for all that extra glassware and those bottles you can't fit in the kitchen. And, depending on which one you choose, they're often a lot more affordable than a cabinet or buffet unit.
