Home Bar Ideas For Small Spaces

One of the main misconceptions is that only large houses and big apartments have home bars since they take up a lot of space. This is not true at all. Here’s some home bar ideas for small spaces:

  • A globe bar is something that can serve as decor for your living area but it’s also an ideal place to place your liquor bottles.
  • A customised liquor cabinet can easily be arranged by using an existing kitchen cabinet.
  • A bookcase bar is very practical since it serves two purposes - a bookshelf and a home bar!

Home Bar Ideas For The Basement

Turning your basement into a real bar can be a great use of space that’s otherwise not utilised much. You can DIY by finding an old pallet and putting some fresh paint on it. Positioned up against the wall you have your first piece of bar furniture. If you’re after a more sophisticated design, consult with an interior designer who can help put together a customised space that fits your unique needs.

Home Bar Ideas For The Living Room

If you’re thinking about adding a home bar to your living room, it may pay to use a space in the corner of the room, separate to an area where people might sit during the day. Plan a space that allows you to store all your liquor and glasses, and also think about adding additional lighting to the home bar area.
