Often a living room is a place where we would like to combine calm relaxing and fun entertaining zones. A living room bar proves to be not only a practical addition that is used for preparing drinks and casual entertaining but also enhances the aesthetics of your home.
A living room bar is different from a home bar because it’s a part of a living room, they are smaller and you don’t need to dedicate a whole room. A living room bar should be fully functional and efficient. There are many variations of how to arrange a living home bar and it depends on the space you have, purposes and personal preferences.
Before you start designing a bar in your living room, it’s crucial to evaluate how much space you have and what kind of home bar furniture can fit in. Once you have an idea of the size, you can start looking for a perfect living room bar for your home.
A living room bar can be set in an empty corner with a freestanding bar cabinet or just simply a portable bar cart that can be placed anywhere around the room. If you aren’t sure where you want to have a living room bar, then choosing a mobile bar cabinet that can be moved around might be a right option for you.
What features a living room bar should have depends on how you plan on using it. But in general to make the most of a living room bar, it should have some basic essentials for relaxation and entertainment. Keep in mind that a living room bar should provide storage space for your liquor collection and a prep counter where you can pour your favorite drink or mix a cocktail. In addition, space for barware and tools will save you time to go to a kitchen and back.
Since a living room bar is located in a living room that normally has couches, chairs or other places to sit, you don’t need to worry about sitting furniture, such as bar stools or bar chairs. But if you have enough space, you can add one or two bar stools that fit your bar cabinet.
The design of a living room bar is just as important as functionality. There are two ways you can design your living room bar. The first solution is to fit with the prevailing style of your home. With the high variety of home bar furniture, it shouldn’t be a problem to find something suitable for any interior design. The other approach to design a living room bar is to go eclectic and make it completely different from the style of the living room or your home in general. Whatever way you choose, the bar should blend in harmoniously with the rest of the space.
