Bar For Your Home

I want to build a home bar. Where do I start?First, pick a location. Generally, people will build a basement bar or corner bar in an area near the kitchen or dining room. If you are limited in terms of available indoor space, an outdoor bar is an excellent option, especially during warmer seasons. Once you have secured a location, decide on what functionality you want to include in your space, such as sinks, storage and refrigeration. This will help you with the overall layout of your home bar design, and then you can start picking materials and finishes that will coordinate with the rest of the space. Do I need a wet bar or portable bar?Including a sink in the functionality of your new watering hole makes it a wet bar. Sinks are convenient for home bars if you choose a location far from your kitchen. Don’t need running water? You might think about going with one of the many portable home bar design ideas, which will enable you to conveniently turn any space in your house into a barroom or cantina. For portable options, try a fun bar cart. What home bar furniture should I get?Choose furniture that will coordinate well with the rest of your home’s decor. Seating and storage are essential to home bar designs, so look for bar stools and a liquor cabinet of some sort. If you are creating a freestanding station instead of using existing countertops, you will need a bar table, which are taller and shallower than regular dining tables. Check that your stool and table height work together before you finalize any home bar designs. Once you’ve found all of the right furniture pieces, you can implement your favorite decorative elements based on the home bar ideas that inspire you the most. How should I decorate my home bar?Accessorizing is the fun part of finalizing home bar designs. Find a theme that you want to incorporate — think about what you might see at your favorite pub or alehouse. There are infinite bar decorating ideas to choose from, but don’t stress too much about finding the right barware pieces, as these are easy to change out. Bottle openers, decanters, ice buckets, cocktail shakers and glassware are a few of the functional accessories to remember to pick up. Coasters, neon lights or signage are all great home bar ideas that will help you achieve the look you want, whether it’s a futuristic lounge or a historical saloon. Last, but not least, don’t forget to stock up on your beverage of choice!

For flexibility in a small space, consider creating a bar from a cart or cabinet on wheels, as designer Leanne Ford did here: You can move it out of the way when you need the extra room. When styling your bar, “mix your bottles and glassware with special odds and ends that have meaning to you,” says Ford. “That will give the space some character and turn your bar into something special for you and your guests to enjoy.”

Nestled in the corner of a large kitchen designed for a family of five, this small wet bar was planned to serve the needs of the entire clan. “It’s prepped and ready to hold all of the fixings for adult beverages, but instead of wine storage we incorporated a chilled fridge space for water bottles, children’s drinks and beverages,” says the design team. “With glass storage above, the homeowners can also display their glassware and china.” See more small home bar ideas >>
