One of the main interior design trends that is becoming increasingly popular is the rise of the home bar, because let’s face it, why go out when you can host a cocktail evening at home? We all love to show off our homes; they are great platforms for creativity and design and for demonstrating our personal aesthetics. There’s nothing more intimate about being in someone’s home because you get to know more about them.
We all lead busy lives these days with long hours, stressful jobs and the unending stream of social and work events. Because of this pressure on our time, the hours we spend at home are a lot more valuable, which is why home entertaining is on the rise. Many of my clients are specifying home bars so that they can kill two birds with one stone, relaxing at home while ensuring the are able to create a sociable environment for guests too.
If you’re after a home bar or an aesthetic talking point for you and your friends to gather around then there are a few things to consider. Firstly, space, especially considering the “conservative” size of most inner-city homes. If you have the space to include a fitted bar in the kitchen or living room, ensure the scale of the furniture (bar included) works in the space. However, if space is more limited, a simple bar trolley sourced from a vintage supplier or a contemporary piece will create a similar, sociable atmosphere. However, you should avoid cramming all your furniture into a small space. Think outside the box and substitute a side board or console table for your home bar.
