In my younger years I dreamed of owning my own pub – I would spend hours dreaming of locations, names and other details of my dream pub. Since then I have altered my focus to the more realistic goal of building an amazing home bar! I often spend evenings longingly browsing Pinterest has provided ample inspiration.
Check out these amazing home bars people have added to their homes!
Now that we are inspired how will we create a space like this in our own home?
It’s actually fairly simple! You just need to take care of a few things:
The bar is the centerpiece for the entire room! The biggest decision with the bar is whether to build a custom bar for your space or purchase a piece that is ready to go! Both options can work great!
Proper seating will ensure guests feel welcome. This may include both comfy leather furniture and barstools. Make sure you have enough for all of your new friends!
You want a bar? What will you serve?! It’s important to offer amazing beverages ranging from draft beer to craft cocktails. I love a bar with a specialty – think about featuring craft beer, high end scotch or even your favorite wines.
If you will be hosting frequently make sure you have all the tools to make any drink!
A kegerator for all the craft beer!
What will you do with hungry guests? Stop them from traipsing through your house by offering some amazing snack options in the basement!
This is your chance to stamp your personality on the basement bar! The options are literally endless – show your sports fandom, classic black and white photos, beer and liquor advertising or even old maps!
This is a super fun part of the process so enjoy!
Now that you have walked through the Blueprint you should be ready to create the perfect basement bar! Remember to have fun!
