How to Style a Bathroom Bar Cart

One of my favorite ways to elevate a space is by adding a beautiful bar cart – and the bathroom is no exception! Having a bar cart in your bathroom is such a great way to organize and stylishly store those items that you’d normally keep in a cabinet or on a crowded shelf. But, deciding what and how to place those items on your cart might not be so easy, so here are some basic tips to help you purposefully place and style a few of your favorite things on your bathroom bar cart.

Top Shelf

  • The best way to use the top shelf is to make it the place where you put your prettiest items! I love to lay out my favorite perfumes, hair care and skin care products. You can even help keep things organized by placing them on a pretty tray. Add a jar of your favorite bath salts with a scoop for easy use or a basket of your favorite bath bombs.

  • The top shelf can also be a place for a good smelling candle or oil diffuser, as well as a box of tissue (dressed up with a pretty cover, of course). A classic, gold dish filled with some of your favorite pieces of jewelry or a piece of art will help to dress up your cart.

  • It’s always a must to add a flower or two to your bathroom – whether real or fake – just make sure to place them in a beautiful vase to help polish off your top shelf styling.

Bottom Shelf

  • The bottom shelf is where you can store your less decorative items. Use this space to keep extra towels and washcloths for guests, or to stock other bath accoutrements such as extra hand soap and body wash, toilet paper, or shampoo and conditioner. Placing these items in separate small baskets can help better organize your bottom shelf storage.

Lastly, Instead of art you can add a mirror over your bathroom bar cart and then make use of the handle by hanging an extra hand towel on it, and your bar cart styling is complete!

When styling your bar cart for any room or any occasion, remember to keep it simple and have fun! Change out your items often to refresh your bar cart style and don’t forget to let it inspire your own design.
