WordsMegan Lambert


It’s getting to that time of year where we spend a little more time indoors, in the comfort of our living and dining rooms. Far from a decor essential, a home bar is an indulgence, so take reference from your favourite hotels or bar lounges when it comes to designing one. Whether you’re going for a minibar or library bar look, these 6 stylish home bar design ideas should give you all the inspiration you need to create a space to kick back and unwind with a glass of your favourite tipple.

Home bar design idea: opt for a drinks trolley

There’s something very art deco style about a drinks trolley. They’re super versatile as they can be moved from the living room to the dining room, depending on where you’re entertaining. Plus, they don’t take up too much space. Demarcate the space by colour blocking or create a feature wall with wallpaper. Ensure your drinks trolley remains well-stocked with your favourite drinks and glassware for a Gatsby-approved party.

Home bar design idea: open shelving

One of the multitudes of ways to style open shelving, a home bar has got to be one of the most fun. A very popular trend, open shelving is a great way to display your most stylish glassware and colourful bottles. Mix them up with a statement ice bucket or cocktail shaker and you’re good to go.
