Any home brewer would agree that having a beer bar at home is a great idea. After all, anyone would be interested to have a place where they could entertain their friends and stock up on their favorite beverages. While the cost and the effort you have to put together to run a bar might seem daunting, it may not be that difficult considering that you have all the tools ready.
If by any chance you become interested to build your own bar, the overall design will depend on your personal preference and building skills. Now, we’re here to help you out by giving you a few simple tips to help you turn your dreams into reality.
It is important to choose a design that combines simplicity and functionality. Go with a freestanding design that is easy to construct. Also, make sure to provide enough space for storage and socializing. Since this project may involve a huge amount of money, it is best to go with a simple layout that you can build on your own.
Create a theme
In order to add character to your bar, consider sticking to a consistent theme. Also, make sure that all the decors, accent pieces, signs and posters complement one another. Feel free to visit a few local bars for inspiration.
Make sure that your stools match the color and wood grain of the bar. Also, the distance between the stool and the top of the bar should be around 10-12 inches. This is to ensure that the person seated at the bar is adequately comfortable.
Proper storage and refrigeration
If you plan to stock up on beer, proper refrigeration is important. A mini-fridge can usually hold enough beer to satisfy the demands of most beer drinkers. If you are also planning to serve champagne and wines in the future, cold storage is also needed. These tips are intended to help you get started. Building your bar may not be as difficult as it seem.
