Deciding on a design and choosing cabinets for a home bar can be overwhelming. Every home is different and every homeowner plans a party in their own unique way. With these creative ideas, you’ll be able to create the perfect bar for your home that matches your entertaining style. Let’s get the party started!
Wine And Cheese Night
For the wine connoisseur who loves a good cheese pairing, no home bar is complete without a wine rack cabinet and cooler. Put your favorite bottles on display and keep a few chilled to perfection. When choosing cabinets, don’t forget the inside cabinet accessories. Tray dividers will keep your cheese boards and serving platters organized and scratch free.
If your favorite way to celebrate is with a good book and a good drink, consider this crafty way to bring your books and bar together. Either build a bar around your bookshelf or add a bookshelf to your bar. When choosing cabinets, incorporate some open shelving for your favorite fiction (or non-fiction)! If you plan to invite your book club over, make serving seamless by adding glass cabinet doors that allow guests to find exactly what they’re looking for without interrupting the discussion.
Secret Cigar Bar
The next time the boys have something to celebrate, surprise them with what’s hiding behind bar cabinet doors. Adding a humidor offers a level of sophistication and excitement to the standard home bar. Keep it stocked with your favorite cigars and make every celebration one for the books.
Not all homes have space for a bar, but that doesn’t mean a bar cart is your only option. If you’re willing to think outside of the box, you’ll probably find plenty of nooks and crannies that would work perfectly for a home bar. Converting a closet is one way to transform an already carved out space into a fun and entertaining addition to your home. Beneath a staircase is another!
Keep It Chill
If game day is usually at your place, find ways to make your home bar extra special for your favorite fans. Freezer drawers let you serve your beer in chilled glasses for that awe-factor and a mini fridge means more cold drinks and less complaints. Rather than leave extra cabinets empty, fill them with your snacks of choice, so there’s no need to run to the kitchen for more chips and salsa.
The Kitchen Crowd
If your guests tend to gather around your kitchen island rather than linger in your living or dining room, build your home bar right in the center of the party. When choosing cabinets, you might want to select the same style in a different finish (or the same finish in a different style) to keep consistency but highlight the difference. This will help your bar stand out, and lets guests know they are welcome to help themselves. While touching your grill might be out of the question, pouring a drink is more than okay.
