Build a Bar in Your Own Home
Use light colors
Use lighter colors such as white or beige to brighten up the bar. Other choices include yellow, pale blue, or neutral tones.
Choose a theme
Choosing a theme is a great way to bring your bar to life. Arcade, sports, comics, or casino themes are always popular choices.
Pick natural materials
Use natural materials like wood, bamboo, and stone. A bar made of stone with a wooden countertop creates a striking impression.
Personalize and customize
Personalizing is a way to make your bar feel like home. Add value by using customized coasters, glasses, décor, napkins, and bottle openers.
Be space conscious
Keep bar stools to a minimum and only place the furniture you need. This will create a feeling of spaciousness even in a small setting.
