A home bar adds to a kitchen or entertainment area, and is a great addition to your home. For those who regularly host small to large gatherings, your home bar will be the center of all the action. For those who are planning on adding a home bar there are a few considerations or features you may want to include during the remodeling process. Future Vision Remodeling will share some of the key features you may want to add if you are planning to remodel your home and making way for a home bar.
Bar Cabinet Storage
When designing a bar, you will want to have bar storage for your glasses, alcohol, and other bar accessories. Built in cabinets with glass doors to encase your glasses and liquor stash is highly recommended. For those who may not want a built-in cabinet system, free standing shelving systems can be put against the wall. Regardless as to your preferences in what you would like for your bar, make sure to incorporate bar storage during your remodeling.
Bar Island Table
When designing your bar area, consider adding an island for placing bar stools. This will give a place for some of your guests to sit and enjoy some snacks and their drinks. Islands with sinks or even a small dishwashing machine help make clean up far easier. A water line must be present, or you can add a water and drainage line, but this will add to the cost of the bar remodel.
Home Bar Refrigerator & Appliances
Along with your island’s dishwasher, you will want a few other appliances as part of the features to your home bar. Many types of alcohol are better refrigerated. Therefore, having a mini wine cooler or refrigerator near or built into your bar system is a must have appliance. Blenders for mixing fruity tonics and other flavorful alcohols is another appliance you will find valuable in your home bar.
Bar Seating & Furniture
As mentioned earlier, seating such as bar stools and comfortable lounge chairs are an important feature to any bar or entertainment setting. There are built-in seating features for those who want to help save on space and is another option if you don’t have space for or desire traditional furniture. With furniture, you will also want to consider the amount of space you have for guests and how many guests you have room for.
Lighting is a big part of mood and atmosphere. You can add lighting around your cabinets, island, and general bar area. Dimming lights are a perfect way to control the mood of your party or gathering. When remodeling a room in your home to make way for a bar, consider all your options when it comes to lighting.
