Entertaining in the Home: Best Features of Home Bars

A custom home bar brings the bar atmosphere into the comfort of your home.

When it comes to entertaining in the home, there is no better place than the home bar. Continue the party after last call or party without ever leaving the comfort of your home. A custom bar can reflect your home aesthetic while still providing a relaxed atmosphere for winding down. Some must-haves to consider for the custom bar are comfy seating, storage space, lighting, and entertainment.

Sturdy wooden stools give the custom home bar a classic look.

Custom Bar Seating
With a custom bar, there are unlimited choices for barstool seating. Choose seating that fits the aesthetic of your home. Tall metal stools provide an elegant look, while sturdy wooden stools are a bar classic.

Cabinetry and shelving provide storage space for a custom home bar.

Custom cabinetry can go a long way in fulfilling bar storage needs. Open shelving and glass doors allow for the display of your favorite selections, while closed cabinets can be used to store extra glasses, shakers, and equipment. 

Custom lighting sets the mood for the custom home bar.

Custom Bar Lighting
The lighting in the bar can act as a focal point for the room. The type of lighting chosen in a custom home bar can set the mood. Dim lights provide a relaxed atmosphere while bright lights invoke a more lively feeling.
