Home Bar FurnitureWhen you get home at the end of long day, or when you are getting ready to start your day, enjoying a casual, peaceful setting is a great way to transition between the rigors of the outside world and the serenity of home life. Sometimes it’s nice to just take a seat at the counter or bar while reading a magazine or playing a game on your tablet, and enjoying a snack or beverage. Our bar furniture provides a comfortable, relaxed and informal atmosphere that is as suited to entertaining guests as it is to enjoying quiet times alone. We also carry more formal bar furniture that is suited for entertaining business colleagues and hosting parties.You are not limited to the dining and kitchen area when placing bar furniture in your home. At Pottery Barn, we offer bars and portable bar carts that look as good in a den or home office as in the dining area of your home. This type of nontraditional bar and stool placement lets you increase the functionality of your work and study space. Or, you can pile your favorite treats and drinks on a bar cart that provides a portable option. A bar cart can be stored out of sight when not in use and it also lets you grab a refreshing drink or snack without the distraction of leaving your work space by planning ahead.Another nontraditional but handy place you can add a bar or counter to add a casual and fun element to a room is a family game room. Players can set up board games and gather around the counter to play, or family and friends can sit and talk while enjoying snacks and drinks at the counter. This type of home furnishing is especially great if space in your home’s family room is limited. The space-saving feature is also in play if you choose from our selection of bar furniture that has enclosed storage space.If you are decorating a small space, a bar-height table that serves double duty as a dining table and a bar is a handy option. This type of bar can be placed in the center of your dining area with stools on both sides, or it can be scooted against a wall with seats placed all on one side so the pieces won’t affect the flow of foot traffic through your room.In addition to bar-height tables, we carry some other home bar furniture options for small spaces and decorating pieces that look great alongside a bar. Consider diminutive bar cabinets that rest against a wall, or tall and narrow bar towers you can slip into a corner or narrow bit of floor space along the wall. Then look at decorative items that make your available space appear larger. One way to create the illusion of a larger room is to put mirrors alongside or above pieces of furniture. The mirrors catch the light and can give the impression of a larger room.If you have a larger room, on the other hand, look for pieces that complement the decor of your room and your bar furniture, such as bookshelves and cabinets. Shelving and cabinets can pull the look of your family game room, den or dining area room together, creating a unified decor theme when styles match up, and enclosed cabinets are also a handy place to store some of the extra items you frequently use when seated at the bar or counter, while open shelving is useful for positioning decorative items where they look best, or glassware pieces within easy reach.

New Year’s Eve and everything in between, you are sure to get plenty of use out of your home bar. We have you covered – our home bars for sale come in a wide variety of styles, shapes, and sizes. So whether you are the type who always hosts large parties or more intimate gatherings there is a home bar to fit your needs. Whether you are looking for a bar cabinet, wine storage, corner bar or stand-alone bar, The Home Bar Store by Home Gallery Stores carries all types for indoor and outdoor use. Stand-alone bars are what you traditionally think of when you imagine a home bar. These can either be straight or have wrap-around edges. These are designed to be placed near a wall with room for a bartender on one side and guests to eat and drink on the other side. Typically, these will have shelves and storage but there are designs that are very simple and utilitarian with only a bar top to serve or hold a few objects. Bar Cabinets and Hide-a-Bars both have shelves and doors for glassware, beverage, and other bar accessory storage. The difference is hide-a-bars more closely resemble an armoire or wardrobe because the shelves and other compartment are contained with doors that you cannot see through. Bar Cabinets may have visible shelves and glass doors to better show off and display your entertaining items. Wine cabinets and other types of wine storage are made specifically to safely store multiple bottles of wine and wine glasses. These can range from very large, ornate cabinets that can hold dozens of bottles or simple wine racks to hold only a few bottles. Corner Bars are smaller than bar cabinets and are designed to fit in corners or other awkwardly shaped areas of a room. These are a great option because they provide plenty of bar storage, take up less space than a traditional stand-alone bar and can help fill dead space in a room.

Home Bar Rule #1: Pick alcohol you actually enjoy imbibing. When I first started my own home bar, I only picked spirits that I thought would impress guests when I had them over. I ended up spending a fortune for alcohol that I hardly ever used. While you’ll use your home bar for entertaining, don’t forget that a home bar’s main customer is you. When you mix yourself a cocktail to sip on the weekends while you sit on the patio with your dog, you want to enjoy it. The dog doesn’t care what your favorite gin is. That is of course if this pooch isn’t your dog. He’s so smug.

Remember Home Bar Rule #2: Start small. If you don’t have room or any place to store your home bar, keep your home bar small. Pick two or three different liquors and stick with those. When I was in an apartment, I kept my small bar in a cabinet above the fridge, and I kept my mixers and garnishes in the fridge.

If you do move into a bigger place and you’ve really enjoyed being a home mixologist, then I can’t recommend installing a permanent home bar in your home enough. Many homes today come with wet bars and storage space for a home bar. If you don’t have that, with a little initiative and sweat, you can install your own bar in an unused room in the house.
