CREATE THE PERFECT HOME BAR STATION

As the long-awaited festive season starts to approach, we are all starting to entertain friends and family in our homes more often. Creating the perfect bar station in your home allows you to take entertaining to a whole new level, as well as host a more intimate gathering by avoiding the overcrowded bars and restaurants.
 

The first place to start when creating your own home bar station is with a drinks trolley or drinks cabinet. Drinks cabinets and trolleys allow you to create a temporary bar station in your home without having to remodel or do any costly renovations, as well as saves you valuable floor space in your home.

 

We have put together our ultimate three-step guide on how to create the perfect home bar station for your home this festive season. 

STEP 1: USE INGREDIENTS AS DECOR

When styling a modern home drinks trolley, you can bring in pops of colour by using ingredients that will be added to your drinks as décor. You can display your fresh mint in a small potted plant and your your bright citrus fruits such as lemons, limes and grapefruits on a wooden try or in a bowl.

STEP 2: USE STATEMENT GLASSWARE

The glassware you use to serve your drinks do not have to be plain and boring, you can select an array of different glasses to create a unique experience. You can incorporate bold statement glassware that feature different shapes, sizes and colours to make your drinks more visually appealing.

STEP 3: BALANCE YOUR BOTTLES

When styling your drinks trolley placement is everything. You don’t want to make your cart appear off balance by placing all of your bottles and glassware on a specific side. So, mix it up and alternate the way you place your bottles, glassware, ingredients and décor to create a cohesive flow that looks good and is functional.
