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!
