(The Washington Post )

Happy hour at home just got a whole lot chicer, with bar carts popping up in a variety of prices, colors and styles, including modern, minimal and industrial.

“There’s a look to suit every taste and budget,” says Niki Brantmark, who runs the blog My Scandinavian Home and has long held a penchant for the trendy home accessory.

Not only are they “extremely practical” and “great for adding sparkle to a party,” writes Brantmark, but they can also be used to display “everyday treasures in the home.”

So whether it’s for entertaining guests or showcasing your home goods, we’ve got you covered with some of Brantmark’s top bar cart picks.
