Home Bar Design

Cabinetry

You may be dreaming of having your own bar at home – or you could be lucky enough to already own one. Either way, this post will inspire you with various elements of a home bar design. From cabinetry design to lighting, your bar could be a space you would never want to leave!

.

When designing a bar, cabinetry is one of the main elements of the design. You need somewhere to store your drinks, equipment, as well as a countertop to work on. There are so many different kinds of cabinetry materials. From veneer, to solid wood doors, or doors wrapped in metal, there is something for everyone. This is the same when it comes to the countertop. Depending on your space, there are countless possibilities. Luckily, this is what we specialise in, and would love to help you.

Seating

Now that you have your beautiful cabinetry and countertops, you will need some seating. Then you will be able to sit back, relax and sip on your drink. Depending on the size of your bar area, you might be able to have bar seating, lounge seating, or even both.

.

The following images have tons of inspiration for your barstools or lounge seating. The style and design will depend on the style of your bar. We are able to custom design and manufacture the bar furniture of your dreams!

Lighting

Lighting will form an important part of your design. There are various forms of lighting, depending on the application. Most bars rely on ambient lighting, to set the mood. This could be in the form of soft, strip lights within your cabinetry. A fun way to add lights to your space is by having LED lights that take the form of words, or other designs to suit your space.

.

Down-lights, pendants and wall sconces can also form part of your bar design. The following images will give you tons of lighting inspiration.

Creating a Welcoming Entrance - Lighting 1

Creating a Welcoming Entrance

Lighting

An entrance or a foyer is often the first room you walk into when entering a house. It will help set the tone of the entire home, therefore needs to look beautiful! The following post will help you gather ideas and inspiration for your entryway, whether you need a redesign, or a brand new one.

.

Would you feel comfortable walking into a dark and dingy space? If the answer is no, then your foyer should be no different! Lighting will make a huge difference in the space. The correct lighting can help make the space look and feel bigger and brighter. Depending on the size and volume of your space, the lighting will differ. Double volume spaces can often afford to have a large, statement light fitting. Smaller spaces might need to have smaller sized fittings. Don’t forget about wall scones too!

Storage

Am I the only one guilty of walking into my home and leaving my belongings all over the space? No? Good – then the following images will inspire you to have some form of storage in your entryway. This could be a large statement table that instantly greets you as you walk in.

.

For those of us with smaller entrances, a server with some storage would do the trick too. Bench seating with storage options is also a great way to maximise your space and storage. Leave your shoes, your coat and your keys all in one place, looking neat and tidy.

Mirrors

We have said the following, a few times, because it is so true! Mirrors are a great way to make a space feel bigger, as it lets more light into the room, and reflects its surroundings. Mirrors come in all different shapes and sizes. The following images are great examples of incorporating mirrors into an entrance.

.

We love putting custom cut mirrors onto an entry wall. We are able to custom design and manufacture mirrors in nearly any design imaginable. They help us to check ourselves on our way out, and often provide the perfect tool for an “insta-worthy” photo. What’s not to love?

Are you full of ideas for your entrance, but have no clue where to begin?
