Stylish in-home bars with storage, beautiful backsplashes, or countertops using Silestone…
They are making a comeback! Few things make hosting a party more lively than a home bar. Here are many ways to serve up a pretty and practical drink station with storage, lighting, appliances and style.
Home Bar with Pretty Patterns
A small bar doesn’t have to skimp on style. In fact, it’s a great place to splurge on materials like tile and cabinetry that might be too costly in a larger project.
Jamie Olivarez of Pink Door Designs created a compelling compact beverage station in this Katy, Texas, home by taking a pretty patterned tile from a dolomite stone countertop all the way to the ceiling. Hunter green cabinets (Billiard Green by Sherwin-Williams) delivers a punch of color, while brass hardware and floating wood shelves add warmth.
Use Vertical Space
This bar is close to the kitchen and keeps guests feeling like part of the social dynamic but far enough to keep them out of the chef’s way.
A cabinet tower in a sophisticated black paint stores liquor bottles and glasses. Glass-front doors allow guests to quickly see what they need. Light wood drawers and floating shelves soften the look.
Bar + Crafts = Creativity
An arts and crafts corner bar has a lot going for it to keep you and guests entertained: a custom glass wine cellar, a pass-through for serving. There’s also a beverage fridge, bar sink and ice maker. Brass sconces highlight the fully tiled wall, bringing out texture. Light wood shelves and navy blue cabinets anchor the space in contrasting color.
Tall, Light, and Gorgeous
A marble-like slab and backsplash with dark walls and light wood create a gorgeous setting in a compact area. Fluted cabinet fronts and diagonal veining in the Silestone emphasize the height of the area rather than the narrow width.
Good ‘ol Fashioned Brick
LED lights installed underneath floating shelves and crown molding highlight a brick backsplash. White cabinets and mirror cabinet doors reflect even more light around.
Lounge Bars Never Go Out of Style
You can even manage to make a multifunctional space with a workout area with a loungy feel. Moody gray cabinets, Silestone countertops, and a backsplash made from old tin ceiling tiles creates high-impact style.
Bold Bar Using High-contrast Color
Dark cabinets get attention! Then warm metal tones in the backsplash pick up tones in the hardware and plumbing. Your guests will stick around with this beauty.
Extra Storage That is Stylish
Sneaky smart rollouts under your Silestone countertop can organize bottles in a convenient way. Add a busy backsplash, lit from above, for a showy statement.
Home Bar with High-End Look
Next to your dining area or in a basement, this high-end, in-home bar using Silestone quartz countertops with a geometric tile backsplash and hefty wood shelving will knock guests’ socks off. The open shelves, glass-front cabinets, and acrylic pulls keep it down to earth.
A Whole Wall of Fun
A single-wall bar seems to be the most popular idea. You can use the same Silestone slab for the countertop and backsplash to create a dramatic yet classy look. The hue in the cabinets should complement tones found in the slabs, and the hardware/faucet can highlight it all. To add functionality, a dishwasher, wine fridge, or ice maker add to it.
