Tips for setting up a lounge bar
More than functional, the bar has an extremely decorative function. That's why you need to take your personal tastes into account when planning your bar. This space is also the ideal place for you to print more daring and modern ideas. However, do not forget that the bar should be in line with the decor of the room as well.
To have or not to have a own furniture for the bar?
The answer to this question is very much related to your tastes and your idea of bar. You can opt for a movable of its own for this purpose or, still, use those strollers that are high in the decoration.
However, it is also possible to set up the bar in a corner on the sideboard, the buffet, the counter or the rack. It is also worth staking on shelves to accommodate glasses and drinks.
The most important thing even before you make the decision is to measure and evaluate the space you have available to build a bar proportional to your room.
Fuel your bar
After setting the size and style of your bar, draw up a list of what you will need to buy to stock your bar. In this list come drinks, cups, bowls, bottle openers, corkscrews, napkins, cup holders, ice buckets, shakers, among other items.
But the trick is that you actually buy what will be used. It does not make much sense to stock a very expensive bottle of whiskey if neither you nor your friends like the drink. The same goes for glasses and bowls: if you do not have whiskey you do not have to buy a glass for it.
If you are in doubt, go in the most common and always enjoyable options like liqueurs, vodka, tequila, one or two bottles of good wine and the traditional cachaça.
Think about the bar decor
As the bar also fulfills a decorative function, nothing more natural than valuing it with beautiful and loaded pieces of personality.
For this bet on plant pots, pictures, objects brought from travel, photographs, books, games, mirrors and so on. Another suggestion is to use trays to aid in the organization of your bar items.
But remember that this is a special place for you to enjoy pleasant moments with the people you love, so leave it as pleasurable, warm and cozy as possible.
