3 Ways To Create A Bar Area At Home


If you’re anything like us, you’ve thoroughly enjoyed watching the bar-in-your-home phenomenon pop up all over the interior design world. We’re fully embracing the shift to spending more time entertaining at home, so we love the idea of creating a special area for a bar right were you can enjoy it! From following the reemergence of bar carts to tucking in a tray of stemware on a bookshelf, we’ve learned to work with what we have. Our Editorial Director Caitlin came up with three ways that anyone can create a bar in their home—no matter the size or style! Now, pop the bubbly and get ready for “cheers!”

Though the most obvious choice, a bar cart can take up a lot of space in a small living room, so it’s not ideal for everyone. If you do have the space, we love the practicality of a bar that can move from room to room (and even outside!). A multi-level cart provides plenty of surface space for styling up your barware and for serving drinks while entertaining.

  • So cute! I’m obsessed with home bars but I don’t drink (I knooow)…thinking of creating an area to mix pretty non-alcoholic drinks at home!

  • Suggestions on where to buy similar items like the small rolling bar cart or the tray used? Thanks in advance!
    WHAT I WORE: tip to toe!

  • While I love these slideshows and take a lot of inspiration from them, I find it so frustrating that you don’t link to the products you use, or at least similar ones!

    • Hi Molly!
      Most of the items in this feature are not currently for sale – a lot are vintage pieces too. If there is anything you are interested in please email caitlin.moran@theglitterguide.com and I’d be happy to send the source and alternate items!
