When I think of a home bar, Del Boy’s retro cream vinyl fronted curved bar with a pineapple ice bucket springs to mind!
I am about to design my second bar for a client, within the last few months. As more of us are choosing to entertain at home, bars are in once again!
Be it a freestanding cabinet, built in, or a drinks trolley, they can be elegant, fun and practical accessories to add to your home.
You may want to incorporate a wine fridge, ice machine, a sink, even bar optics! A bespoke unit can be tailor made to suit your needs and don’t forget good storage! Glass shelving and mirror backs, using clever lighting can make your vodka, gin and whisky bottles look like works of art!
I added a pull out desk on one side of the unit we designed, for a client that works from home and even though she has her own home office, needs to shut herself away in the Sitting Room from time to time. This works a treat!
Many furniture designers such as Knowles and Christou will make special bespoke drink cabinets with all the bells and whistles, pull out trays, fitted glass racks, mirror back, wine bottle rack, drawers, the only thing they don’t provide is the alcohol!
