Cheers at Home: Creating the Perfect Bar Setup

Cheers at Home: Creating the Perfect Bar Setup

Welcome to the world of home entertainment and sophistication! If you’ve ever dreamed of having a place in your home where you can mix up your favorite cocktails /mocktails, entertain friends, or simply unwind after a long day, then creating a bar might just be the perfect project for you. Let’s dive into the essentials of designing a bar that’s not only functional but also a statement piece in your home.

Cheers at Home: Creating the Perfect Bar Setup


Ideal Space: First, choose a convenient location in your home that’s easily accessible during social gatherings. A corner of the living room, dining area, or a designated part of your basement or den are all great options.

Compact Spaces: If you have limited space, consider a small bar tucked into a corner or under a staircase. Use a single-wall layout to maximize efficiency.

Cabinet Selection

Cabinets: Shaker-style cabinets feature clean and simple lines. These cabinets work well in transitional homes. Flat panel cabinet doors offer a modern design, elevating your space.

Color Palette: Sticking to neutral colors like white or wood tones create a crisp, uncluttered appearance. If moody and dramatic is more your style, opt for black, green, or navy cabinets.

Backsplash and Countertops

Bold Backsplash: Reflective surfaces like mirror backsplashes add drama and depth. They also bounce light, making the space feel larger. Consider metallic backsplash tiles for a touch of glamour. Gold, silver, or bronze tones work well. Wallpaper is another great option.

Quartz Countertops: Choose durable and easy-to-maintain countertops. Quartz is an excellent option for your counter and backsplash.

Accessories and appliances

Undermount Sink: Install an undermount sink for convenience. It allows for easy cleanup and adds functionality to your bar area. By adding a sink, you are now creating a wet bar.

Add shelves: It keeps bottles organized and accessible.

Wine Refrigerator: If you’re a wine enthusiast, invest in a wine refrigerator. It maintains the perfect temperature for your favorite vintages.

Ice Maker: Don’t forget an ice maker! It ensures you always have ice on hand for cocktails/mocktails.

LED Lighting: Install LED lights inside glass cabinets to create a shimmering effect. It highlights glassware and adds ambiance.

Chandelier or Pendant: Hang a glass and gold chandelier or a sleek pendant light above the bar. It elevates the space and adds sophistication.

Finishing Touches

Bar Stools: Place a couple of stylish bar stools near the bar area. Choose designs that complement your overall decor.

Glassware Display: Showcase your glassware collection on open shelves or inside glass cabinets.

Personal Touch: Add a decorative tray with cocktail/mocktail ingredients, a shaker, and garnishes for a personal touch.

So, create your own signature cocktail/mocktail, grab a drink, and let Brooklyn Tile and Design get you started on this exciting journey to elevate your living space! Cheers to creating a chic and inviting space for entertaining!

Brooklyn Tile and Design Day of Charity

On May 13,2023, Brooklyn Tile and Design had the ultimate honor of giving back to a great cause. BTD sponsored and hosted an informational booth to help raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society along with 25 other vendors and sponsors. The Block Party and Market Fundraiser was held on a beautiful tree lined street in Garden City, New York. There were over 150 smiling faces in attendance. Children as well as adults enjoyed the beautiful sunny day shopping, playing, eating, and petting adoptable puppies.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is a global leader against blood cancer. 100% of all proceeds from the ticket proceeds benefited LLS. Money raised went directly to cancer patient services, patient advocacy and most importantly, cancer research.

Brooklyn Tile and Design understands the importance of giving back and community volunteerism.

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
– Gandhi

Thank you to all who donated and attended.
