Home bar ideas for open plan spaces

What better way to entertain guests in your home than with your own dedicated home bar? If you’re on a budget, consider this intimate setup a worthy investment – because from here on out, your kitchen will be everybody’s favourite place to unwind on a Saturday evening.

A home bar is a great drinks storage choice for an open plan space as it helps to effectively zone the room. The addition of a mirrored back panel can make the room feel even more spacious.

Opt for a bespoke shelving display to present your liquors in style and a peninsular island to serve cocktails across the counter. Choose elegant bar stools that complement the colour scheme of your living area for a cohesive feel.

It can be placed snugly in a corner or alcove in your living room, and the Portland Oak internals can complement a social space perfectly with their warming wood tones.
