If you’re planning to add a home bar to your open concept kitchen this holiday season, you want to create a space that welcomes guests and helps you to be an even better host than you already are. This is especially true during the winter months, when having friends and family over happens more often than not. Here are our tips for designing a home bar for holiday entertaining.
Scope out your space and determine the dimensions for your home bar.
Step one when designing a home bar is figuring out where it will go. There is no right or wrong place. Some homeowners choose to build their home bar adjacent to their kitchen, while others prefer that it be in the dining or living room area.
There are a few factors to consider when finding the right spot for your home bar. First, think about foot traffic. You want the traffic flow to easily move around your home bar without causing an obstruction. If you wouldn’t be able to enter the kitchen or see the TV when someone was pouring a drink, that is not the right space in your home for a bar.
Second, make sure there’s no issues with the plumbing or electric. If you’re going to have a sink, you’ll need running water, and if you’re planning to install a refrigerated wine storage cabinet, you’ll need electricity. Check these items off your list before starting your addition.
Pick the perfect cabinetry to complement the theme of your home.
Our bar room cabinets come in all different styles and finishes, so you should have no problem finding the perfect set to complement your home.

You can also order samples of our bar cabinet doors, so that you can compare styles in person. We highly recommend taking advantage of this ability to ensure that you are 100% satisfied with the style you choose. When ordering samples of our bar cabinet doors, you are only required to pay shipping. After the samples are returned, your deposit will be refunded less return shipping back to us.
Customize your cabinets with the right add-ons and accents.
The great thing about ordering custom cabinets and working with one of our designers is that you are able to truly build out your dream design and ensure your bar cabinetry has all of the functionality you desire.
From that wine storage cabinet we mentioned before to a breathtaking backsplash in your favorite color, there are endless options available to you.
