After a long day there is nothing like a drink to unwind. Instead of going to your favourite local hangout, take it one step further and build the bar in to your house. Here are a collection of the best home bars, which will hopefully inspire creation of your own.
The 'Classical Bar'
Who does it suit: This bar will suit the more established drinker who has aged their premium selection for some time. Expect to find plenty of gin behind this bar and mainly clear spirits.
The Rustic Cabin.
Who does it suit: This is primed for the new age drinker. Expect to find the hipster here sitting on the ground throwing back a glass of Pims or Sangria. The best part of this is that it can be built on as an extension to any original decking, or the current outdoor area you have can be converted to a cosy drinking hole.
The Uptown Prince/Princess
Who does it suit: Expect to find your fast talking lawyer with a bar like this in their home. It oozes elegance, and simplicity. One thing that business people like when it comes to their spare time is simplicity in making decisions. A bar like this easily displays all of your stock, and couldn't be cleaner in design.
Who does it suit: Take a bland space that looks like a warehouse, and turn it in to something sleek. That's what 'The Artist' is. This home is well designed and overly simple. The key elements are bold, with the lights and timber creating clean lines. Expect to find your younger demographic living here.
The 'Wine Connoisseur'
Who does it suit: Hopefully the name was descriptive enough. This is surely a wine lovers dream. Your entire collection on show, with an array ranging from rich reds to classic sparklings and champagnes. This is every wine lovers fantasy, but you need the stock of wine to keep it looking good!
'The Sports Bar'
Who does it suit: This is the alpha male bar. The only thing it requires are TV's hanging from the ceiling playing every sports game across the globe. It's every beer lovers fantasy with a selection of 12 taps on offer to proudly display your love of beer from different parts of the world.
The 'Apartment Bar'
Who does it suit: This is suited to those who think they don't have enough space in their apartment for a bar. Taking up very little room, this bar is finished perfectly with mirrors to make it look bigger than it is. The main elements of a good bar are on offer, with good shelf space, wine chilling and a bar fridge. You don't need more than this.
So no matter the size of your place or the rooms that you have, you always have the opportunity to put a bar of some sort in. Be creative, and make your bar a destination in your house and a place to unwind yourself, or entertain guests.
