Luxury Home Bar Inspiration

loading="lazy"

06.12.21

Home bars are having a moment in the world of luxury interiors and as one of the trends to emerge following the events of the last 18 months, the concept of the home bar is one that certainly seems set to stay.

There's no season quite like Christmas to entertain family and friends and as an appealing addition for when guests visit, we've curated 6 of the most beautiful luxury home bars to inspire you. ⁠

From creating a chic corner bar in the kitchen to a space in the living room for seasonal sips, staying in over the holidays has never looked so good and we’re confident once you add a home bar to your interior, it will become a favourite element of your decor.

Cocktails at Home

Features our Longbridge Pull Handle in our burnished brass finish

Sure to have you coveting your own cocktail bar, make a stylish statement in the kitchen with a stand-alone set-up inspired by Jean Stoffer Design. From luxe gold floating shelves to the unique curved ridged cabinet beneath, the look is undeniably chic and the perfect place to serve your guests drinks over the holidays - or any other time of the year for that matter. ⁠

The Kitchen Bar

Features our Sparkbrook Pull Handle & T-bar in our satin brass satin lacquered finish.

For open-plan kitchens, integrate a decadent corner bar by sectioning off the area with a crittall inspired frame like this striking design by Hetherington Newman. Presenting the illusion of a room within a room, this style works beautifully for contemporary interiors and when placed next to an island with bar stools, who needs a reason to go out for drinks?

Drinks Cabinet

Features our MIX Diamond Knurled Pull Handle with Backplate in our satin nickel plate finish.

A drinks cabinet, but not as you know it. This symmetrical space by HW Interiors proves that sometimes less is more and whilst the kitchen is perhaps the first place that comes to mind when planning a home bar, a pantry, utility room or converted walk-in cupboard all work just as well.

After-Dinner Drinks

Features our Diamond Interwoven Grille & Bakes Pull Handle in our burnished brass finish.

A lesson in luxe home bar decor, we adore this timeless design from Nicole Hogarty Designs.⁠ Opting for bespoke cabinetry to create your bar is a wonderful way to not only maximise the space available but also to ensure the space works with the rest of the room. Whether you’re hosting a relaxed family gathering or a seasonal soiree, enjoy after-dinner drinks no matter the occasion with an understated living room bar area.⁠

Sophisticated Sips

Features our Cotswold Ball Knob in our burnished brass finish.

If you've been contemplating the addition of a home bar, we're pretty sure this sophisticated setup by Elliott Biddle Interiors will inspire you to create your own dedicated space. An effortless way to bring the home bar to your kitchen or pantry, transform built-in shelving into a dedicated stylish display of timeless glassware and bar essentials.

The Whisky Room

Features our MIX Diamond Knurled Knob in a satin antique satin lacquered finish.

Features our Bromford Knob in a satin antique satin lacquered finish.

These lavish whisky rooms by Sophie Paterson Interiors conjure visions of sophisticated post-dinner party cocktails and conversation. For a truly luxurious look, it’s all in the materials so choose brass and marble paired with rich heritage hues. When it comes to creating an inviting ambience, it’s all in the lighting - spotlights with dimmer switches often work best to set the mood.

Home bar tips

If you’re feeling inspired to incorporate your own home bar in time for Christmas, here are our top tips to get the look.

  • If you’re working with a smaller space, consider updating the interior of a cabinet that once opened reveals a secret bar area

  • Open shelving not only gives you a place to store your bar accessories, styled well, it becomes a feature of the room too

  • Speaking of styling, group glassware together, add a few of your favourite cocktail recipe books and make the most of the tools to mirror the look of a boutique bar

  • For worktops and counters, a tray is an excellent way to keep bottles of spirits neat and tidy

  • Open fronted cabinets are an elegant way to showcase your collection of glassware or wine; opt for a decorative grille to add texture to your cabinets
