If you love concocting new drinks for friends and entertaining in your home, then creating a home bar should be next on your to-do list. These seven home bar ideas will help you create a space that’s original, functional and attractive enough to become the centerpiece of your at-home entertaining.
The first thing you’ll want to decide is where to put your home bar. Common placements include kitchens and dining rooms, although living rooms and basements are also popular, as people also entertain guests in those rooms. If you live in an area with great weather year-round, you could even consider an outdoor bar.
Keep in mind that if you want your bar to have appliances such as a refrigerator, wine cooler or sink, then you’ll need water and electricity set up in that area as well.
Although some of the bars featured in our gallery are extravagant and space-consuming, you can create a home bar almost anywhere in your home with a bit of creativity and by following your own personal style.
