Seating is key to having happy guests in your bar area, whether with traditional barstools or comfortable lounge seating. Of course you want to have room for your guests to socialize comfortably; this can be as simple as adding a few vintage chairs near the bar or rearranging your space including chairs, couches and other seating complement the bar area.
3. Use right appliances
If you want to be a real bartender, you have to use the right accessories. So, it’s essential to have a bar cart to impress your guests. You should choose a bar cart related to the decoration of your bar, to create a harmonious ambiance.
4. Add an island to your space
Give yourself more counter space to shake and stir with a built-in island, which can serve several purposes. Islands give you an ample space for preparing and serving drinks at a party. Upgrade to a wet bar by adding a sink, which will help you clean glasses quickly and serve drinks faster.
5. Create storage
Using built-in cabinets or large furniture can make your bar look more distinguished and showcase your liquor, drink ware and other bar accessories. Built-in cabinets are the most expensive option, but they also give your bar the most stately and a permanent look. If built-in is too big of a task, using a buffet table, cabinet or bookshelf is another way to incorporate storage in your bar and feature fun pieces of furniture.
