The Art of The Cart

In the world of interior design and entertaining, the drinks trolley is a timeless piece, bringing versatility to your home. Whether you’re a seasoned host or someone who enjoys a cosy night in, a well-curated drinks trolley will transform your home into a sophisticated haven for socialising and relaxation. 

Functionality Meets Aesthetics: 

One of the most appealing aspects of a drinks trolley is its dual functionality. Not only does it serve as a perfect practical storage solution for your favourite spirits, mixers, and glassware, but it also adds a touch of glamour and sophistication to your living space.  

Whether you’re a fabulous host, a mixologist or both the drinks trolley doesn’t have to be used just for drinks. They are cool decorative pieces of furniture for storage whether displaying your potted plants, favourite ornaments, or coffee table books.   

Curating Your Collection: 

The key to a successful drinks trolley lies in the art of curation. Consider the aesthetics of your space and choose a trolley that complements the overall design. Once you have the perfect piece, it’s time to curate your collection of beverages and accessories. A well-stocked trolley typically includes a selection of quality spirits, a variety of mixers, bitters, and garnishes. Don’t forget to add stylish glassware, cocktail shakers, and bar tools to enhance the visual appeal. 

Four Practical Tips for a Perfect Drinks Trolley: 

1. Organisation is Key: Arranging your booze bottles and glassware in a visually manner, by grouping similar items together, creates for a cohesive look. 

2. Personal Touch: Adding personal touches like unique coasters, decorative napkins, or a small vase of fresh flowers will infuse personality into the setup. 

3. Lighting Matters: Consider adding subtle lighting, such as a string of fairy lights or a small table lamp, creating ambiance and highlighting your carefully curated collection. 

4. Accessorise with Style: Investing in stylish accessories like cocktail picks, cocktail stirrers and quirky bottle openers will enhance the overall aesthetic of your drinks trolley. 

Whether you’re a seasoned mixologist or just beginning to explore the world of cocktails, a well-curated drinks trolley is sure to become a focal point in your home, adding a splash of glamour and individual style.
