Your home is your castle and it is important to craft a living space that sends a powerful message to your guests as well as being designed to tailor your needs. This is usually achieved by designing an interior that is decorated and designed to complement your personality.
A really tasteful and seriously fun feature to include in your home is a home bar. This gives you the tools you need to entertain guests, enjoy yourself, and drink a refreshing beverage to unwind, all from the comforts of your own home.
When crafting your home bar, there are a few things you should consider before designing the interior. Whether you want to replicate the experience of having a night out or create an intimate and relaxing space to fully chill-out, these design tips can help you on your way to the perfect home feature.
It’s important to decide on the best location for your home bar within your house. How much space do you need? Do you plan on hosting for a large group of friends or just you and your partner? You could opt for a single wall wet bar if you’re aiming to just keep the space for you and one other. If you plan to entertain groups of people, then you may want to go for a seated bar with lots of space and stalls.
It is also important to situate your bar in an area of the house that has appropriate plumbing for usage. It’s a really nice touch to locate the bar in a basement to make it feel like a private place of retreat. It’s just as effective to design the bar to fit into a commonly used room if space allows for it, creating a more commonly used space.
The theme you decide for your home bar should be consistent to create a sophisticated look. It’s great to match the theme to your personality to send a message to your guests about the type of person you are.
If you loud and eccentric, you could go for bright colours and designs to compliment this. Bold patterns look effective behind edgy and slim materials. If you are more laid-back and quiet, calming colours like greys and blues are a great option. Combine with some vintage oak wood and antique decoration for a really traditional look.
A movie buff could add in black wood topped with a silver marble counter, black leather chairs and spot lighting to express his personality. A football fanatic could use stylish greens and decorate with a TV for watching all the games. Choose elements that fit in with your personality.
It’s important to find the right elements to use in your home bar to complement the overall interior design, everything from glasses to stalls. Begin by deciding upon your choice of alcohol, if you’re a Whiskey lover, opt for an alcohol collection that includes many different whiskies, but also be sure to stock other types of beverages for guests.
Then make sure you choose glassware with a bespoke design. LSA glassware provides a range of different high quality and stylish designs for every type of drink lover. Take time when choosing and kit out your home bar with style, you’ll be sure to impress every time you pour a drink.
Creating a home bar is one of the ultimate indulgences for a homeowner and designing that dream is not as difficult as you may think.
Whether your home bar will be used to entertain the ‘lads’ while cracking open a cold beer and watching the football, or relaxing with a bottle of wine after a long day at work with a relaxing vibe to help you unwind, you can create the perfect space to fulfil all your needs. So get crafting, creating and designing for a space where you’re always guaranteed a seat.
