There is one interior design trend that is becoming increasingly more popular right now and this is to have a home bar installed. This can be a great addition to the home as it makes for much better entertaining, which of course is important in the current climate, with people opting to entertain at home as opposed to going out to pubs and restaurants.
What is a Home Bar?
A home bar is simply an elongated table that is usually high and narrow with bar stools on either side. This can then be a space where you can socialize and entertain guests but it is also a practical space for making drinks or even as another surface in the kitchen – you can even have a wet bar which has an ADA undermount sink. Typically, a bar will be installed in the kitchen or dining area but you could even have multiple bars throughout the home and in any room of the house used for entertaining.
A Great Addition to a Bachelor Pad
A home bar is a great addition to any household, but it can work particularly well in a bachelor pad. This is because it can provide you with a cool and unique space for entertaining whether you have a few friends over or you are trying to impress a date, plus they can bring an air of elegance and luxury to the home. Not only this, but they are practical spaces that provide you with another surface that always comes in handy.
Improve Your Kitchen Area
As mentioned, you can have a bar in any space in the home, but a kitchen bar is the most popular option, especially in an L-shaped kitchen. This is because it can accentuate the kitchen and can turn this into a social space, which is always a good idea if you like to cook for people as it means that you will not be hidden away in the kitchen, and they can talk to you as you cook. Of course, it is important that you choose a style or theme that suits the kitchen so that it will look natural and stylish.
How to Use a Home Bar
You can keep a bar clear, but many people like to stock it with alcohol and/or snacks and cocktail-making equipment. This can certainly improve the look of the space (particularly for a bachelor pad) as well as make it much easier to knock up your favourite cocktail after a long day.
It is easy to see why so many people are having bars installed in their homes, especially during the pandemic. They are a great addition to any bachelor pad as they will bring class and sophistication as well as provide you with a new space for entertaining guests, along with the benefits of having another surface in the home.
