Home bars are the perfect addition for homeowners who love to host parties and entertain guests. Thinking about designing a custom bar for your home? Here are some things to consider when deciding on a look for your home bar.
What types of drinks will you be serving? Will you need an area to install a draft? A wine rack? Will you be needing an ice machine? A microwave for snacks? These are important questions to ask yourself when deciding what type of cabinets and countertops to use in your bar.
Storage is one of the most important aspects of a home bar. Custom cabinets with glass doors or small windows are perfect for bars. They allow you to elegantly show off your collection of spirits, maximize counter space, and stay organized.
In anticipation of spills and scratches, durability is typically the number one priority of a home bar.
When mixing and serving drinks, you are going to want to be able to see what you are doing! A great way to do so is to add lights underneath the cabinets to illuminate the countertop.
You can’t forget the bar stools! Typically, bars leave 2ft of space per stool.
Spills are inevitable but not disastrous…unless you have carpet. Wood floors or tile are a necessity for any bar.
The back wall of the bar is going to end up being the centerpiece of your bar. Make sure it pops! Add some color using wood, stone, tile, or even mirrors.
