Create a Home Bar with Custom Cabinets

If you love to entertain guests, adding a bar to your home can take your hosting to the next level. A bar provides a central point for friends to gather and makes serving drinks easier when all your bartender items are in one place. A home bar could be a full setup in your basement complete with a counter, mini-fridge, and sink. It can also be a small nook in the kitchen, dining room, or family room that houses your drinkware and liquor. You can even add a bar to your deck or patio to enjoy during the nice weather.

The key to creating the perfect bar is utilizing cabinetry to meet all your needs. See how these cabinetry components can come together to make an amazing home bar.

Base Cabinets
A mixture of cabinets and drawers is the best option for base cabinets in a home bar. Drawers are essential to hold bottle openers, muddlers, bottle stoppers, foil cutters, and all the other accoutrements that come along with a bar. Lower cabinets are frequently used to hold mixers, overflow wines and liquors, ice buckets, and other larger items. They can also hold serving dishes, bowls, cutting boards, and snacks.

Upper Cabinets
The upper cabinets of a home bar are where the fun happens! Cabinets with glass doors allow you to show off your glasses: martini, highball, rocks, wine, and the list goes on. Depending on the size of your home bar, open shelving can be installed to display your liquor collection or other items. Built-in wine racks are also a popular choice for home bars and are available in a wide variety of configurations.

Special Features
Just as there are special cabinets for a kitchen (think pull-out spice rack, roll-out pantries, etc.), there are also similar features that can be of use in a home bar. Wine glass racks, a pull-out cutting board, lighted shelving, and more can all be added to customize the home bar to your needs. You may also want to consider locking cabinets or drawers to provide an additional level of security for your bar.
