Luxury Home bar ideas

If you want to add a touch of decadence to your property, a luxury home bar is the ultimate accessory. When so many areas of your home are determined by function, a bar is one area where fun and frivolity reign supreme.

From enjoying pre-dinner drinks to entertaining friends or unwinding as a family, a luxurious home bar can enhance your home and create a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. To begin designing your very own decadent bar and entertainment space, take a look at these top tips and luxury home bar ideas now:

1. Selecting the Perfect Space

Before you can start designing your luxury home bar, you’ll need to decide exactly where it’s going to be situated. Depending on your property, you may have a dedicated room, such as a basement or kitchen annexe, that you want to transform into a decadent in-house bar.

However, you don’t need to earmark an entire room to enjoy a luxury bar at home. With the right furniture, you can create an opulent home bar anywhere. To make the most of the space you have available, why not designate a corner of your living room or part of the dining room as your bar area?

2. Planning the Layout

You may have already seen stunning bar furnishings and accessories but it’s important to plan the layout of the space before you decide on which pieces to incorporate into your home bar. If you have an entire room to transform into a bar area, you may decide to have a custom-made bar built to your own specifications.

It is a good idea to work with a designer or contractor to create a bespoke bar that complements the features of your property. Whether you opt for an ornate Art Deco design or a sleek, contemporary finish, you can let your creativity run wild as explore luxury home bar ideas.

If you’re incorporating a home bar into an existing room, it’s even more important to maximise the space you have available. Deciding whether to have streamlined bar stools, like The Hive Counter Stool by Royal Stranger, or classic chairs, such as the Pina Chair by Hommes Studio, will help you to establish how much space you really need.

3. Permanent or Portable?

If you’re going to create a luxury home bar and you have the space, a permanent bar might seem like the obvious choice. However, a portable setup enables you to retain some flexibility and means you can enjoy a luxury home bar environment anywhere in your home.

When the warmer weather arrives, for example, summer bar planning will ensure you can make the most of the soaring temperatures. With a portable bar cabinet and freestanding seating, for example, you can turn your luxury home bar into an outdoor oasis.

4. Choosing Bar Cabinets

Whether you’re designing a permanent addition to your home or you want to enjoy the versatility of having a portable home bar, designer bar cabinets are an essential element of your design. To keep your bar fully stocked and equipped, you’ll need a range of accessories and a bar cabinet is the ultimate way to store everything you need. In addition to this, the right bar cabinet can be a statement piece and the focal point of your luxury bar design.

The geometric shapes and asymmetry of the George Bar Cabinet by Coleccion Alexandra ensures it’s the ideal choice for both contemporary and classic home bars, while the portability of the Traveler Bar Cabinet means it’s perfect if you want to be able to enjoy your home bar in any area of your property.

The Regenta Bar Cabinet by Coleccion Alexandra is hard to beat if you’re looking for a statement piece. With a built-in wine rack and glass shelves, it’s supremely functional, while the gold leaf doors and black lacquered wood ensure it creates a spectacular aesthetic in any home bar.

5. Finding the Right Glassware

As you might expect, luxury glassware sets are indispensable in a decadent home bar. The Fluted Collection by Richard Brendon is perfect if you want to add a classic Art Deco twist to your home bar. Designed with whiskey and cocktail lovers in mind, hand-cut tumblers, coupe, highballs and flutes ensure you can serve virtually any drink in the appropriate vessel. Alternatively, more decorative pieces, like the Chai Stem Glass Narangi by Ikkis or Cactus Mania Wine Glasses by Casarialto, allow you to embrace your creativity and enjoy a truly bespoke setting. 

No matter which glassware sets you choose, be sure you have enough glasses to serve all of the guests. Furthermore, you’ll want to make sure that you have an extensive range of glassware so that each drink can be served to perfection.

6. Designing the Décor

As in any room of your home, the décor you select for the bar area has the potential to elevate the space and add a touch of opulence. By choosing fixtures and furnishings that are in keeping your bar cabinets, you can base your interior design around the centrepiece of your luxury home bar.

From the chairs or bar stools to the tables, artwork and luxury barware and bar tools, every element of your design should come together to create a cohesive and holistic aesthetic. Whether you favour a contemporary style with industrial design and deep colours or a classic feel with lighter shades and elegant fittings, you can rely on your décor to add a luxurious feel to your home bar.
