Home bars have been an important part of American homes for many years. They range from western country themes to island retreats and include everything from neon signs to exquisite works of art.
The bars at home are meant to be a place of entertainment and relaxation. They should be warm, inviting and fun. One of the easiest ways to build a unique home bar is to buy home bar plans. Thanks to the ease of the Internet, you can buy home bar design plans from a website and download them instantly to your computer. These types of plans provide step-by-step instructions and provide you with a list of building materials.
If you are not interested in building a bar, you can easily find one to buy. There are several varieties of home bars. They include the right wet bar, L-shaped wet bar, Kegger bar, back bar, and portable party bar. Most home bars have cabinets, storage areas and adjustable shelves for alcohol bottles and glasses. Typically, bar tops have high pressure surfaces that are impervious and heat resistant. Some have sinks and built-in refrigeration systems to keep drums or cold drinks.
You will need bar stools to accompany your bar. They are usually about 30 inches tall and constructed from a variety of materials including wood, leather, vinyl and chrome. Some bar stools have sports logos printed on the seat or carved in the wood. Others have high backs with padding on the seat and the middle area. Bar stools can be custom designed to meet your individual needs. Often you can find special offers on bar stools in restaurant auctions or by visiting the government's surplus websites.
You will find an abundance of accessories to decorate your bar. One of the most common design elements of a home bar is the neon sign. Today, neon signals are very affordable and come in a variety of styles and colors. You can even buy custom neon signs and further customize your home bar. Other signs that you might want to include in your bar design at home include football, basketball, running and other sports signs; signs of alcohol; and new signs.
You will need cocktail glasses, martini shaker and colander, shot glasses, blenders, bar tools and a blender to complete the design of your bar. You can get special offers on bar accessories at restaurant supply stores. Also check the classified section of your local newspaper for restaurant equipment auctions.
