It’s been a hot and humid summer here in Pennsylvania, and nothing makes that more bearable than a nice, cool drink. After reading our last blog, you probably stocked up your home bar and now have bottles and supplies just hanging out on your counter and you’re wondering how to make it all look pretty. Sorry to keep you hanging; summer has just been flying by!
There is no shortage of ways you can put together an aesthetically pleasing bar. Some opt for a true bar look with a counter and stools. Builders can create custom bars for indoor or outdoor use. If you entertain often, this is a great choice! There are many things to consider when designing a bar (like what type of stone, sinks, paint colors to pick, etc), so be sure to consult your decorator on the best options for your space.
If this is a little much for you, or you lack the space, consider a bar cart. This is a great option because it looks great and keeps everything together, but can be rolled away and tucked out of sight if needed. If it’s a well-styled cart, it can also be kept out and used to enhance your décor.
Many people repurpose things into home bars. You can find tutorials online on how to transform everything from dressers and old suitcases to barrels and even an old pianos into a mini bar. If you're looking for a good DIY project, this is it.
Another great option is just to add a few decorative touches to an existing piece. Try adding a tray and some decanters to the top of a dresser or cabinet. Bottles can then be tucked inside to give it a tidy appearance.
