Drinks trolleys are fast becoming one of the most popular pieces of furniture for the modern home. They provide a convenient and stylish way to store and serve drinks, as well as offering an attractive addition to any room.

With so many different styles and designs available, it can be difficult to know which one is right for your home. In this article, we’ll give you a few tips for how to find it! We’ll discuss the various factors you should consider when making your decision, such as size, style, materials and budget.

Size matters

The first thing you need to consider when choosing a drinks trolley is its size. You want to make sure that it fits comfortably in your room, but if it's too small it won't look as attractive. Measure the area where you plan to place the trolley before shopping so that you can narrow down your choices accordingly.

You should also think about how much storage space you need; if you plan on storing a bar's worth of spirit bottles then a larger trolley may be necessary. On the other hand, if all you need to store is a few champagne flutes then a smaller option may suffice.

Find a style that compliments your room

Drinks trolleys come in a variety of styles, from traditional wooden designs to sleek contemporary pieces made from metal or glass. Think about what kind of look will best suit your home and pick something that complements its existing décor.

If you’re looking for something more unique, there are plenty of vintage drinks trolleys available too – including Art Deco trolleys and 'hidden' drinks trolleys in the shape of globes. These can add an interesting touch to any room while still providing practical storage solutions for all your favourite beverages!

Consider durability

When selecting a drinks trolley it’s important to think about materials and durability as well as aesthetics. The most common materials used are wood, metal and glass. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages,  so it’s worth doing some research into which one would be best suited for your needs before making a purchase.

Wood is generally considered more classically attractive than metal or glass, but it does require regular maintenance such as polishing or waxing in order to keep it looking its best over time. Metal is very strong and can be the easiest to care for if it's a metal that doesn't rust like aluminium or stainless steel; metals that do tarnish, like gold, silver or copper, look amazing but are harder to care for. Finally, glass looks great and is easy to clean, but it is also the most fragile material.

Find something within your budget

Your budget will ultimately determine which type of drinks trolley you buy. There are models available at every price point, but materials like silver, gold and rare woods like mahogany will be more expensive.

Don't forget extra features

It’s also worth considering any extra features such as wheels (which make moving the trolley easier) or shelves (which offer additional storage space). These features may cost extra but they could be really handy if you use your new trolley a lot.

Choosing the right drinks trolley for your home doesn't have to be difficult – by taking into account the different sizes, styles, and materials on offer before buying (all while keeping your budget in mind) finding the perfect one should be easy!
