Having a bar area in your home offers a special space to host a party, welcome company and simply escape for some quiet time. A very desirable space, yet many homeowners don’t know where to begin or if they have enough space in their home. Blogger, Shannon Acheson of HomeMadeLovely.com recently shared her tips when it comes to creating a bar area in your home, even if you are working with limited space.
When creating your bar area, one of the most difficult tasks is deciding where to put it. For Shannon and her husband, they tend to host get-togethers on the main floor, while the basement is occupied with their teenage kids and their friends. “You need to choose the best location for it based on your lifestyle. In this house, we’ve chosen to use a combination of the living room and kitchen since they’re open to each other and part of our main entertaining/hospitality space.”
Once the space is chosen, adding the elements to make it a bar area can become challenging. What objects are too big? What elements are needed? Will this fit? A bar area is not complete without a sink. Shannon recommends BLANCO’s new EMPRESSA faucet collection because of its pull-down spray feature – a major key in saving space. “Each faucet in the EMPRESSA collection boasts a stunning silhouette modeled after the shape of vintage wine presses found across Europe. I love the entire collection!”
Including BLANCO in your bar area adds a chic look of modern design while creating the environment around it. Supplementing barstools, personal touches and storage spaces will complete the look of your in-home bar area.
