Bar cart style has been around for decades, but you won’t normally find them in a Muslim home. Due to the nature of using it predominantly as an entertaining station filled with alcohol and mixers, one was limited to its use. But the trend has come full circle, with some modern adjustments. The bar cart is no longer just a functional piece of furniture, but a must-have statement piece for your home. And, guess what? You don’t have to use it just to serve drinks. Now maybe someone should work on changing the name.

From lollipops and candy bars, to treat bags and clear jars, there are endless possibilities to display your sugary confections. But unless you have super self-control, this should be saved for special occasions like holidays and birthday parties.

Bring your living room to life by utilizing the bar cart in a room other than your dining room. With a decorative bar cart as your statement piece, plants and flowers can remain relatively simple.

This is one bar cart that will be used multiple times a day. If you have kids, a hot chocolate bar will always be a hit with yummy fixings such as marshmallows, whip cream and peppermint mixing sticks. I am partial to a coffee bar with my Nespresso capsules and lots of Torani flavored sauces. But the English in me will always have a special place in my heart for a proper tea trolley for afternoon tea.
