Gordon James
Design Inspiration for Elevating the Home Bar

There are few touches that can make a home livelier and hosting more exciting than a home bar. The home bar becomes a centerpiece – one that can elevate even the most hum-drum of days. A home bar provides an entertaining space that naturally draws guests away from the kitchen, keeping them out of the way as food is being prepared. 

The best part is that the design is entirely up to you and your tastes. It can be a humble bar top to cover small fridges for beer, wine or bubbles. Or maybe you fancy yourself a wizard behind the bar who can mix cocktails by memory and whip up something stunning at a moment’s notice. You can add an ice well and places to store your syrups, vermouths (bonus tip – these should always be refrigerated anyway) and juices so you are ready the next time your friends come by.

Inspired by the Your Existing Design

There are so many different places to pull inspiration from when designing your home bar. One of the best: your current aesthetic!

There is nothing wrong with using your existing decor as your inspiration. Renovating your home bar to reflect your current design choices can help create a seamlessly integrated, enjoyable space. Integrate prominent colors, materials and design motifs from the surrounding rooms into the layout of your home bar to create a vibe of flowing hospitality throughout your home. Your custom homebuilder can help fine-tune your approach to ensure your home bar creates a stylish addition while blending wonderfully into your existing design.
