Are you disappointed by the fact that your home doesn't have a suitable area to sit and relax with your friends? Tired of finding the perfect solution to this problem? If so, how do you see the idea of setting up a bar area in your house? I know the expression on your face right now and it's an expression of skepticism – a fear of spending a lot of money on something that's difficult to put together. Well, there is good news. You don't have to do extensive renovation work or spend too much on it. A home bar is easy to set up and all the easier to maintain.
Let's look at a few things to consider when setting up a home bar:
The goal is not a pub
It's your personal bar, so having the bare minimum is no problem. It's a home bar where you stack the liquor and bar tools. So you have to remember that setting up a bar counter for 20 people is definitely not what you would want in your home. In addition, buying a huge fridge and beer kegs will be pretty heavy on your pocket. Keep things small and neat. Even a small open area in the living room is enough to set up an appropriate house bar.
Keep things very simple
You have to make that clear! If you spend too much money, this is not a guarantee of a fantastic home bar. If you plan to buy a countertop, make sure it is short. Small bar cabinets and bar kits are easy to find, easy to set up and maintain. If this idea is too much for your budget, you can opt for a simple table. However, make sure it's strong enough to absorb some unintentional bumps during the celebrations.
Quick selection of alcohol
You don't have to fill up hundreds of bottles, you know! You have 10 different types of alcohol, but having 10 different types of vodka in a home bar is lame. Get expert advice and start with the basics. Buy a bottle of rum, scotch, bourbon, vodka, and gin each. If you keep these items in stock, you can cover many drinking basics. Add some extra alcohol if you want to make cocktails or martinis.
So keep these points in mind and you'll end up setting up a fantastic home bar that is sure to make your guests jealous!
