Pubcraft: Create A Stylish Home Bar
If you have the interior space to entertain, it’s always a great idea to install a customised bar area at home. You can put together a creative space that speaks to your personality and can function as a feature in your home… perfect for inviting guests and unwinding after a busy week.
Here we share some top designer tips for creating a stylish home bar:
Unlike more conventional rooms in the house, you have free reign to get creative in an entertainment area such as a home bar. We suggest you get some inspiration from trending pubs in the city and create a bold bar area that will become the talking point of your home. We love rustic, industrial style bar areas that pack a real punch. Think industrial materials such as brickwork, exposed piping, concrete and copper finishes for a truly industrial-chic bar. Or go wild with colour, glass, chrome and more for a more eclectic space! The bolder the better.
Storage is key to creating a designer look. Open shelving, wine racks and even glass cabinets are key to achieving a stylish home bar. Not only functional to your room, but open shelving is also great for showing off your collection of drinks and glasses – which will add to the overall aesthetic of your home bar.
A customised bar and seating area
Be sure to install a customised bar counter to serve your family and friends. Solid wood is always a winner and will bring depth and style to your bar area. When you consider the layout of the room, be sure to include adequate seating for a more pleasurable stay. We love vintage leather and chrome bar seats for the ultimate industrial chic look but solid wood seating or even a comfy side sofa would be ideal for creating a stylish home bar.
Add a wine cooler or fridge
When designing your space, be sure to include key elements such as a cooler or fridge to the layout of your bar. This will help for easy access to drinks, ice and more. Other functional items to consider in the installation of a home bar include a sink and water point for quick access. It’s never ideal for someone to be running down to the kitchen with glasses to fetch water or ice!
