Seating is Key


When designing your home bar, you'll want to remember that your guests will be sitting down while enjoying their drinks and food, so make sure to opt for comfortable plush seating that will make your friends & family want to stay even longer! We love designing custom barstools that swivel, rise up and down, and that sit comfortably below the bar's counter edge. Keep these details in mind the next time you choose your barstool seating because this could make or break a great rocking entertainment space!

Moody Uplighting & High-End Wallpaper


Make any home bar the focal point of the room by incorporating moody uplighting and high-end wallpaper! Choose light fixtures that have a dimmer for upscale and custom lighting for every occasion. As for the wallpaper, keep it simple yet effective with sleek designs that don't take away from other central design aspects such as the bar's wood carvings or decorative pieces as seen above. Mix and match with your style to find the perfect balancing combo that will elevate your home bar to the next level!

Keep It Organized


When you're entertaining friends and loved ones, you want to be able to talk with them while simultaneously making drinks & serving appetizers. To do this, make sure that your home bar is clean and organized. Opt for floating shelves that display easy to grab glassware and install a hidden wine fridge within the cabinetry for easy access to chilled beverages. This allows you to stay in one place the whole time while also giving a great backdrop wall for guests to look upon. If the home bar is a smaller space, install a mirrored wall to make the space feel bigger and airy!
