Why Go Out?

Why Go Out?

Why go out? In a world where the lines between work and leisure have blurred, our homes have become the epicenter of our social lives. Entertaining at home takes on new meaning with a luxurious custom bar. With client requests for a distinctive space that is inviting, elegant, and modern, we are raising a glass to this trend. To achieve a luxe look, our designers are incorporating bespoke geometric tile, rare marble, and lustrous stone and combining it with warm organic wood and shiny metal accents. With an opportunity for elevated design, we asked the experts for their top tips. Our super‑talented team reveals the insider scoop:

Indoor/outdoor living is requested by many clients, and outdoor entertaining spaces, including bars, media, and kitchens, are delivering.

Take Out:

With outdoor entertaining taking over, the home bar finds a place in the mix. Drawing inspiration from luxe getaways, our designers are taking the party outside. Top trends include mixed finishes, blending the space in with the natural surroundings, and adding an outdoor kitchen. Take the party outside.

Adding smart appliances to the home bar is another way incorporating technology into interior design is elevating the way people live.

Hi-Tech Ready:

Entertaining just got easier. From prep sinks to the perfect ice cube maker. Add refrigerator and dishwasher drawers for fun, easy serving, and a quick clean-up. A stocked glass front fridge shows off your choices. Smart appliances allow you to control everything from lighting to your refrigerator through your mobile phone.

Lighted Cristallo Quartzite countertops and backlit shelves create an elegant yet modern atmosphere for entertaining.

Light it Up:

Lighting is the key to making the at-home bar sing. We are seeing features as striking as lighting up the entire stone countertop and as understated as simple sconces. The options are endless. Our designers recommend using lighting and custom fixtures as a way to customize your space.

The home bar creates an opportunity to display a collection of your own and personalize your space.

Ready, Set, Collect:

Add shiny brass, silver, or crystal decanters and glassware. Collect beautiful trays to display groupings of bottles. A curated collection of vintage stemware, bottle openers, or modern vases adds visual interest and a coveted look your guests will swoon over.

Including a wine cellar with the home bar allows for more storage- and looks distinguished.

Full Storage:

Why not add an adjacent wine cellar? Our clients are taking the home bar a step further with attached wine cellars. No longer relegated to the basement, the wine cellar is in full view. Glass it in. Now go ahead, enjoy the view.

Custom built-ins create an area to display everything from picture frames to art to your favorite liquor.

Make it Personal:

Monogrammed cocktail napkins, a modern sculpture you picked up in your travels, framed photographs. Let the bar area become your personal showcase.

Raise a Mug:

The home bar is not just for a martini. Prefer a latte? Design and customize an at-home coffee bar where you can make a perfect brew in the comfort of your home. Curate your dream china, teaspoons, and accessories and have them all in one exquisite space.

Elevate the design and make bold choices when choosing interior design elements for the home bar.

Risky Business:

The perfect space to take design risks, the bar area allows for a splash of color even for those neutral-loving homeowners. Interesting backsplash tile, lacquered wall paint, and custom countertops are sure-fire ways to make a statement. The space can feel decidedly bold, traditionally cozy, or sleek and modern.

Custom millwork creates options for any home bar

It’s in the Details:

Whether modern, transitional, or coastal, custom millwork adds a signature style to your home bar. Need extra counter space? Have shelves built in that pull out for an additional prep area. Storage, shelving, and built in wine racks are all custom millwork options.

This bold bar creates drama with chrome accents throughout the design; the bar stools, light fixture, and shelving.

Go Glam:

Brass or silver accents help create a space that shines. Dramatic marble is a luxurious finish our designers use to give at-home bars a luxe hotel feel. With an option to create a luxurious environment, adding mixed metals and luxurious finishes goes a long way.
