            10 inspiration ideas for at-home bars


            • 1. Go for grey

              Neutral shades, like grey, are a sure choice for a bar design, as they will easily pair with existing decor around the home for a coordinated look. 
            • 2. Make it streamlined

              Making drinks can get messy quickly, so it is important to keep the design clutter-free. Handleless cabinetry offers a pared-back look that is also easy to clean. 
            • 3. Parade your partyware

              Show off your best accessories and glassware using glass-fronted cupboards, which adds a decorative element and a display feature to home bars.
            • 4. Open for business

              Create a speakeasy-style cocktail cupboard with this small bar idea. Tucked within a larder unit, there is ample storage for stowing bottles from view when not in use. 
            • 5. Go for art-deco

              Quartz surfaces are key to achieving a luxury bar design akin to upmarket drinking parlours, as well as offering a practical solution for spilt liquids.

            • 6. Sink into the evening

              To create a drinks area that prioritises fashion and function, opt for this practical bar idea that includes an inset bowl for washing up glasses and shakers.
            • 7. Create a luxe look

              Take inspiration from The Great Gatsby by adopting glitzy finishes, like copper handgrips, that add glamour to a home bar design.
            • 8. Tap into black

              For those wanting to achieve a statement scheme, black features, such as taps, will make a home bar stand out for maximum impact.
            • 9. Win with a wine fridge

              Update your social space with the latest tech by adding a wine fridge. This modern bar idea will make accessing and chilling bottles a breeze when entertaining. 
            • 10. Illuminate the night

              Use lighting to add visibility to storage areas and shed light on your latest infusions. This will also set the mood for an evening spent with good company.
