In addition to being a pretty, sophisticated way to display all of your liquor and accessories, bar carts are all about practicality. You don’t even have to limit a cart to corralling your alcohol, and instead can have it double as a home for your coffee machine or extra storage for snacks. Of course, it can hold your glassware, too, and free up some cabinet space in the process. Really, if you use it right, a bar cart can be one of the most multifunctional pieces in your kitchen.

However, as small as they usually are, there’s a chance you might be dealing with a tiny kitchen that has no square footage to spare. If that’s the case, and your bottles aren’t fitting in your cabinet or on your countertop, West Elm has an ingenious solution. The Kaloh Wall Wine Rack is a totally sleek bar cart alternative that’ll take up zero space and get your liquor collection in order — and it’s currently 60% off.

What is the Kaloh Wall Wine Rack?

This handy wall rack comes from the brand behind some of our favorite kitchen gear from West Elm, including this counter caddy and these stoneware pasta bowls (which have earned SEO editor Sarah a ton of compliments, FYI). Made in collaboration with minimalist designer Aaron Probyn, this simple wine rack will blend right into your wall, so it won’t interrupt your aesthetic. It’s approximately 25 inches wide and 5 inches tall, and it has a slim depth of about 4 inches, so it won’t extend too far over your counter. The upper portion works as a shelf for about four liquor bottles (or anything else you might want to keep within easy reach, like olive oil). The underside offers secure slots for hanging up to six wine glasses. It’ll instantly open up space in your glassware cabinet and allow you to keep your bottles up and out of the way.

This small-space solution just might be the most practical, stylish, and affordable “bar cart” out there. You’ll be able to keep all of your wine bottles and glasses on display without sacrificing precious floor space — all while creating more room in your kitchen and decluttering your cabinet or countertop. Factor in that it’s priced at only $30 right now, and that makes it a no-brainer.
