Bring the look of your favorite bar into your home with the following tips from D2 Interieurs and products from Serena & Lily. We think we have found the right mix…it’s 5 o’clock somewhere, so pull up a stool, serve your favorite cocktail, and cheers!
Light It Up: Modern and chic lighting is the way to make your bar unforgettable and also set the mood….this is something that can be easily replicated from your favorite bar whether its pendant lighting, under mount lighting or back lighting to show off your favorite bottles.
Bars in Small Spaces: When Space is an issue, use a tray on a counter to display all your bottles. Or buy a console or a bar cart, an area that gets over looked is the wasted space under the stairs, it can become the perfect bar for your home.
Pull up a seat: The best way to make sure your guests linger is to have enough seating. In addition, stools are the perfect way to add color and texture to your bar. You can also rearrange sofas and chairs so that it accommodates the bar area.
Appliances are Important: If you are going to be playing bartender, you’ll want to make some drinks on the rocks. Make sure you make room for a ice machine and for the wine aficionado - opt for a wine refrigerator.
Create Storage: Install open shelving or repurpose a bookcase to display your top shelf choices and beautiful barware.
Materials Matter: Use reclaimed wood as the countertop to give your bar an organic feel. The backsplash is another area for visual interest, put up a grasscloth wallpaper or a metallic paper as the backsplash to give more texture and style.
A home bar can become a centerpiece in your house and can go almost anywhere - with just a little bit of creativity and personal style. It all depends on how much you want to stir it up!
We will drink to that!
