Where should I put my bar table, bar cabinet or drinks cabinet?
The layout of your home will often dictate the best location for your bar table or drinks cabinet. Any convenient coves or corners available in your dining room, living room or open plan living space will serve nicely. If space isn’t an issue, a living room may be the ideal environment for your home bar, allowing you and your guests easy access to refreshments when you are relaxing after a dinner party. You could also utilise any spare space in a conservatory, which would provide the ideal setting for an afternoon refreshment on a hot summers day.
Should I get a wooden or glass bar table or drinks cabinet?
The material you choose will depend on the style of your room. A wooden bar table or drinks cabinet can fit well in a traditional or rustic setting, or it can be embellished with leather, copper or steel fittings to work in an industrial style room.
A glass bar table is more flexible given its transparent nature, and a lot will depend on the other materials present. Glass with steel or metal has a more contemporary feel and will suit a minimalist or urban vibe. Glass with brass or copper is more versatile and might work in a rustic or country style room, as would glass with wood.
If you want to create a shabby chic look then a vintage drinks cabinet or a bar table upcycled from a salvage shop could offer the perfect solution. Even better, you could find an old bar table and customise it yourself with wood paints or staining techniques.
There are plenty of other materials available including copper, steel, plastic or metal bar tables. Shop around and browse our directory for one that quenches your home bar thirst.
What types of bar stools should I choose to match?
Try to find something that complements your bar table in its size and style. Look for a stool that shares some of the materials of the table, or reflects similar elements or details. There is no reason all the stools have to match if you’d like to go for different styles, just try to ensure there is some congruence between them. Measure the height of your table and subtract 9-12 inches to gauge how tall your stools should be, they are typically 26-31 inches tall. If you are squeezed for space then backless stools are probably the best option so they can be tucked under the table when not in use.
