Home and garden bars have never been more popular and are now also a big part of many people's social lives and interior design plans.
Whether your preference is a large space for entertaining and showcasing your bottle and glassware collection or a hidden bar where you keep all your favourites drinks and cocktail accessories, home bars not only provide a safe and organised storage space for your wine and spirits, but they also help you prepare drinks quickly, easily, and add a stylish area to your house.
Here are some tips to add a bit of something special to the favourite area in your home.
Dark and Moody
Dark wood and colour schemes are very popular at the moment. Painting your home bar, a dark colour is an inexpensive and simple way to give it a moody, luxurious feel similar to that of your favourite bars.
Mirror and Glass
A mirrored backsplash on wall behind your bar is a great way to make the space appear larger and to give the space a professional feel. Glass shelving will also create the illusion of more space in a home bar and are an attractive way to off your barware and drinks flavourings.
This look is easy to to by adding metal finishes, brushed steel barware, wooden floors and pendant style lighting
Drink Ordering Made Fun
Having a chalkboard or peg board can be a fun way of adding a personal touch for you visitors or a fun way for them to tell you what they want to drink
If you want to have a unique home bar, your could try repurposing what you have lying around. Old toys that you could spray vibrant colours, old photos you could put in cool frames, empty bottles - the possibiities are endless.
The Man Cave
This one is easy. A big TV, reclining seats an X Box and somewhere to store your remotes and controllers and a range of beer glasses.
Your home bar is made for fun so consider adding a splash of colour that is at odds to the rest of your house. A bright pink, orange or yellow are fun. If you’re not that brave you can add colour with your bar accessories and bottles.
