How to Decorate Your Home Bar

Do you often have friends and family over to your home for an evening of cocktails and conversation? If so, a home bar is the perfect addition to your house. Your home bar can be an extension of your kitchen island or counter, or can be its own entity. Once you have a home bar, you can decide how you want to decorate it. You can choose a theme, such as a tropical cantina, or have the bar blend in seamlessly with your existing décor. Read on to get a look at some important features for your bar décor.


Even the most seasoned bartenders know that spills are inevitable when you’re making drinks. That’s why it’s important to have a bar top surface that is both beautiful and easy to clean. Tile is an excellent choice for a bar top, and you can even have yours customized with the colors and designs you prefer. A custom tile bar top adds flair to your home décor, and is a great way to showcase your unique personality and sense of style.


Lighting is key when you are decorating your home bar. Ideally, you need enough light so that you can work and see what you’re doing, but you don’t want to spoil the ambiance with too much bright light. Under-cabinet lighting keeps glare to a minimum without leaving you in the dark. Depending on the location of your home bar, you could hang a small chandelier above it to give your space a feeling of casual sophistication.


Your friends and family will probably be gathering around your home bar a fair amount, so it’s a wise idea to provide seating. You can have traditional bar stools with custom tile seats, or more plush seating options for an air of elegance.
