Bar carts are one home decor staple that is not only functional, but they also add a bit of sophistication and old-fashioned charm to any bar area, kitchen, or dining room. I’ve even seen them used as makeup carts and portable nightstands while scouring the endless supply of charming home decor inspo on Pinterest. Unfortunately, they’re not exactly known for being inexpensive.
Whether gold-toned, acrylic, lucite or metal, I’ve spotted some glitzy bar carts priced upwards of a grand. Basically, cheap bar carts that actually look stylish in your home aren’t easy to come by these days. With that being said, investing in my wood and gold metal bar cart was one of the best home investment pieces I’ve personally ever made, and I feel like mine serves as a centerpiece in my living room. You can even dress them up with chic bar accessories, your favorite liquor bottles, flowers, pretty perfume bottles, and your favorite scented candles, too.
Aside from their aesthetic appeal, they’re also a fabulous decor touch for entertaining guests and hosting your weekly wine night with the girls. I admit that I happened to score big time, and actually found mine affordably priced at a local thrift store (I know, I hit the jackpot), but fortunately, there are plenty of inexpensive options online that don’t look, well, cheap.
Whether you’re into antique-inspired globe carts that were common during the Mid-Century era or enjoy the classic appeal of metallic art deco varieties, you can surprisingly find some gorgeous pieces to elevate your space without going bankrupt in the process. Here are some of my favorite affordable options to give your place an instant revamp with just one statement piece.
