01. Choose the Bar’s Location
Before starting designing your home bar, you should first choose its location. Maybe, you can have it in an unused room, like the basement. Or maybe, you can have it in the kitchen. Some people, prefer to have it in their studies and others in recreation rooms. By checking your house’s blueprint you can figure out which room fits plumbing and power requirements of a bar. Remember, that a home bar can vary both in its size and general use.
02. Be creative with the Bar’s Counter and Stools
The next thing to do is to figure out the style that you’d like for your home bar. You can have a wooden bar or a glass one. You can choose a tile counter or a stone one. No matter what you choose, the style should always be according to the style of the rest of your house. If you want to add something surprising, you can always create contrast with the stools that you choose. You can have stools of different colors or colors that contrast with the counter.
03. Invest in a Good Icemaker
A countertop icemaker is a must-have for your home bar, especially if it is not placed in the kitchen. It will save you the need to run to the kitchen to fill the ice-bucket and will make your drink preparation easier.
04. Don’t forget a small Refrigerator
In accordance with the previous point, if your home bar is not in your kitchen, then it would be a great idea to invest in a small refrigerator. This way you can always have cool water or beer. You can even store some snacks that will be perfect for your drinks.
05. Bar Sink and Faucet
Your bar sink must be comfortable, even though not as big as the one that you have in your kitchen. If your bar is adjacent to your kitchen, make sure that you choose a sink that matches the main one. The same goes for the faucet. In case your bar is close to the kitchen choose a faucet similar to the main one, or even choose one of the same product line. You can find a great selection of kitchen and bar faucets in Hausera, so make sure to choose two that match with each other.

06. Go for Open Shelves

07. Spice up the Bar’s Decorations
Take note of your favorite bars and pubs. Do they have any distinct decorations that you can imitate? Even if not, you can always add your own ideas. You can place a chalkboard in a wall and write motivational phrases, or even some puns that will make your friends laugh. You can hang your favorite football team’s banner, or even create a decoration out of corks.
