Not since the 1940s (you know, that decade following the repeal of?Prohibition) have we seen such a surge in the popularity of the bar cart. From shelter magazines to DIY?blogs to tastemakers’; own living rooms, the once-forgotten relic is shaking up interiors at every turn. Whether you credit the set designers for Mad Men, the 21st-century craft cocktail-bar renaissance, or?pioneer drink artisans like Julie Reiner, who have inspired us to try our hand at stirring up some beyond-the-basics tipples while entertaining at home, these wheeled wonders are here to stay.

And why not? The bar cart is an endlessly adaptable home accessory: It provides an instant?decor pick-me-up and a?versatile storage solution, and there’;s a style to suit?every?environment. Whether you have one or you want one, here are some thoughts on building a better bar cart.

This glammed-up example from Honestly WTF proves that plants can lend a bar cart a little extra pizzazz.

When choosing a cart, the rule of thumb is simple: Find a style that fits your decor. Midcenturytoddler pillow cases, minimalist, industrial, glam, rustic — every?aesthetic is?accounted for, with vintage and handmade models in ample supply. Since the range of sizes varies as widely as the styles, make sure to measure the space you’;ve designated for the bar cart’;s parking spot and commit to checking the dimensions of every option you’;re ogling from afar.

When it’;s time to stock your cart with supplies, start with a?selection of basic liquors: the building blocks you’;ll use for most cocktails. Think vodka, gin,?tequila, whisky?and rum — with at least one pick that’;s nice enough to sip neat (and pretty enough to display proudly).?Emily Henderson, a?true-blue design star and the author of Styled: Secrets for Arranging Rooms from Tabletops to?Bookshelves, says the one bottle that’;s a mainstay on her bar cart is Bulleit, a bourbon whisky?made in Kentucky. Besides being the core ingredient for a couple of her favorite recipes (the Manhattan and the Old Fashioned), the bourbon comes in a simple bottle with a lovely label. Next, round out your repository?with neutral?mixers —?club soda, tonic water, and sparkling water — and a go-to bottle of Champagne or other sparkling wine for celebratory toasts.

If you want to be a stickler about it, there are at least eight different types of glasses that could rightfully claim a place on the bar cart. But who has the space (or the barware budget)? Instead, just stick to good-looking sets of the styles you use the most. One foolproof formula to try: a set of highball glasses, a set of old fashioned glasses (aka lowball or rocks glasses), and some delicate coupes for sipping Champagne.
