5 Artisanal Ways to Style Your Home Bar

A Home Bar can be a magnet of sorts. It’s that space that’s synonymous with fun, memories, friendships, secrets and possibly the occasional brawl as well.

As we make time to unwind with sundowners and more  – with family or very close friends – a Home Bar can be the high point of your evening. Some of us have managed to get customised bars created at home – but If you haven’t got yourself one ( yet ) then follow these simple pointers that will help you choose a bar cabinet or bar cart for your space from our handmade selection. These fabulous bars can also be customised as per your size and wood and finish requirements.

Choose the Perfect Bar

  1. Measure your space. Measure the correct length, breadth and height of the entire area in which you plan to place your bar, from corner to corner. Accurate dimensions will ensure you know exactly which bar options will fit into your spaces – and which won’t.
  2. Know your bar’s function. What will you be using your bar space for ? Will you be hosting parties or just a few friends or just be there on your own some ? This will help you decide size, detailing and storage.
  3. Determine your style. What do you like ? If you like all things traditional – then a classic natural wood bar is what will work. If you are fine with clean, modern lines – choose dark, bold colours and clean lines and silhouettes

Now that you’ve got yourself the bar of your choice – give it your personal touch and let it speak for you. Or give your old faithful bar an upgrade and style your Home Bar in chic ways with our artisanal finds
