Home bars aren't just for rich superstars and dashing spies, they're for anyone who enjoys quality alcohol and an intimate environment. A home bar can turn an empty corner into a relaxing retreat and place for entertaining guests. From a pre-made wine bar to a custom-made sports bar, there are home bar options that fit every need.

Classic Home Bar

Rich wood and earthy tones combine for a home bar with a classic theme. A single slice of hand-carved oak tops the long, rectangular wood bar with old-world style. Thick, round brass tubing runs along the lower part of the bar to provide a traditional decoration and a useful foot rail. Hand-carved wood stools with brass foot rails echo the bar's design.

The lower wooden counter behind the bar consists of a sink and space for mixing drinks. Shelves, cabinets and a refrigerator fill the area below the counter. A short cabinet against the wall behind the bar also provides storage. A large mirror in a hand-carved wooden frame hangs above the cabinet for an old-fashioned accent. Plants in brass hanging pots decorate the space on each side of the mirror.

Feminine Home Bar

Home bars don't always have to have game, sport and testosterone-related themes. A feminine home bar provides an elegant and fully stocked entertaining area with a light and soft style. Polished white-and-cream marble tops the lilac-coloured wood base of the L-shaped bar and complements the hand-carved, rose-patterned, white wood front and side panels set into the base. Cream velvet upholstered stools with lilac wood legs provide seating.

The inner bar holds all the basic amenities, such as a sink and refrigerator. Three glass vases with lilacs sit on the marble wall shelf behind the bar to provide a decorative accent. Wine glasses hang on cream-coloured wood racks below the shelf.

Modern Home Bar

Bars can update a decor, too. Brushed stainless steel counters top a glossy black semicircular bar for visual contrast. Round, brushed stainless steel stools with black leather cushions provide stylish seating.

A lower counter behind the bar provides a working area that consists of a sink, drying rack and space for small appliances, such as a blender. Shelves, cabinets and a refrigerator fill the area below the counter. Waist-high black shelves on the wall behind the bar provide assorted storage. A large, colourful, geometric, broken-tile mosaic framed with black wood hangs above the shelves to provide an artistic accent.
