The events of 2020 have had a significant impact on many businesses, resulting in both permanent and temporary closures of beloved local spots, such as the corner bar. The bar has always been a popular place to socialize with friends, enjoy sports, and unwind after a long day at work. Enter: the home bar.
With the extra time at home, many homeowners have taken on home improvement projects. One great idea is to add or improve a home bar. Even small changes can make a big difference. Here are some tips on creating the perfect aesthetic:
1. Moody Atmosphere
Create a moody atmosphere by painting an unused nook with a dark, masculine color. Think of the old speakeasy with dark wood and soft lighting.
2. Lounge-Style Ambiance
3. Stock Up on Bar Tools and Ingredients
Stock up on the right tools and ingredients. Retailers offer a variety of styles for items such as shakers, muddlers, and corkscrews, among others. Don’t forget to have the necessary alcohol and mixers.
4. Showcase Your Home Bar Style
5. Get a Bar Cart
Consider getting a bar cart if you don’t have extra space for your bar. It not only suits your style but also allows you to go where the party is.
If you’ve finished your weekend to-do list, consider spending some time creating a home bar. With some creativity and attention to detail, you can entertain in style, even if it’s just for you.
