If you are one of those who loves to relax by enjoying a glass of wine or a glass of fine scotch whiskey over a weekend or after a long day, then a home bar is the perfect thing to accompany your rendezvous.
You can invite over guests and lounge in the living area, but also find soothing solace in the mini bar tucked at a corner of your home with its perfect seating arrangement.
Here are some ideas for your home bar and usage of bar stools.
Storage is essential
The first thing you need to do for your home bar is create a fantastic storage. The storage can be a wall cabinet or a standing cabinet, but what makes a difference is a fine display. Create a separate section of the range of alcohol. This will help minimize fiddling through the storage every time you want to pour a drink.
An island will be perfect
When you have a home bar, you must have an island set up. It is a raised platform which has the mini bar setup on it. This island is just the thing for you to serve your drink on. Arrange some bar stools around the island, and you will have a cozy little bar at your privacy.
A bar is incomplete without the perfect lighting. You need to attain the perfect play of light. It should not be too bright or too dim. A subdued, more calm lighting is always preferable, perhaps a golden or yellowish hue.
Appliances are a must
Refrigerator, wine coolers, a beer keg and some cocktail makers, these form the electronic side of your home bar. Go with the latest trend.
When you are making your home bar, remember to keep it spacious and have enough bar stools for everyone. There are blogs and websites on the Internet that can help you get familiar with various parameters and thus begin with setting up a home bar.
