  • You need to choose what suits your space. You can have a portable bar that can be moved to different locations and be put away when it is not used. You can have a wet bar where you can have a sink in it. You may have a full back bar to store bottles and others which has a more professional look. Wall shelves can be paired with this.

  •  You can have a classic wooden bar if you want. You may also use tiles or stone for the counter-top. Choose the colors that will make your bar look inviting and would look right in your room. You should consider the tone in the area if it has a uniform tone or contrasting colors. You can also have a sleek look for your counter.


  • Bar stool seating should be decided according to bar design and theme. It can be a plain bar stool, one with a back, a high stool design or a fancy stool. Make sure that the spaces between each stool are 28 inches to allow comfortable seating and movement.
  • You would need a space for storing your beers and wine. Have that inside your bars. You can also place wall shelves for your wines. If you want to have a refrigerator, you can place one, too. Determine your needed storage space so that you can make one that is enough for everything.




  • To enliven your bar, add some dramatic lighting using pin lights. You can have recessed lighting's, too. Decorate it with accessories like a lighted bar sign if you want.
