Get your home Spring-ready with the entertainer’s dream built-in home bar. Here we share some drool-worthy ideas and inspirations so you can create the perfect spot in your own home.
A home bar is the perfect spot to unwind with guests and the ideal cocktail after a busy day. This space should therefore incorporate ample seating, shelving, mixing surfaces and storage to maximise the area in your home. The perfect blend of all these elements will be sure to enhance your home bar.
A customised space
You don’t need a large room to create the perfect built-in home bar. On the contrary, you just need a spot in the home, or an unused nook, where you can carefully install a built-in unit to serve as a bar. Be clever with your use of space. Perhaps you have an unused corner in a living room, or an area under a staircase. A little love and innovation can transform, even a small space, into a beautiful designer home bar, perfect for entertaining.
Invest in quality bar stools to enhance the look and comfort level of your bar area. We love the idea of using contrasting materials and pops of colour through seating to add colour to your space. A beautiful upholstered seat could bring a touch of elegance while a leather or metal stool may be the ideal addition to an industrial and urban bar area.
Open shelving is often the way to go in a built-in home bar. This gives you ease of access and you can also use open shelving to display some of your prized bottles and glassware. More than just a functional space to store your favourite drinks, shelving can certainly add to the overall aesthetic of your bar.
Countertops and Surfaces
A simple counter can provide all the space you need in a chic built-in home bar. With so many trendy materials on the market today you could invest in a marble or granite counter, or choose something more edgy such as a concrete or wooden bar top to bring a designer edge to your space.
Under-counter storage or cabinet space may be a life saver in a home bar. Not only can you easily conceal the clutter but you can also safely lock away your precious items for safekeeping. You’ll need ample storage for glasses and your drinks collection, as well as accessories such as ice bucket, tongs, mixers and more.
