When it comes to the relaxation corner you have arranged in the comfort of your home, we must discuss about the living room bar as well, since this is the place where you will be playing the amphitryon role.
Depending on the space you have available, the living room bar can be arranged either on besides a wall, or as a separator between the kitchen and the living room. Either one of the two solutions is very practical and beautiful in its own way, with the sole condition that the item coordinates with the general design lines of the house/apartment.
For small apartments, a convenient solution would be a chest-like piece of furniture, made out of wood and placed near a wall. As we taught you before, when you have small rooms, you have to develop vertically and make the most of the available space, therefore, in this particular situation, mounted shelves are ideal. An open space (no doors) is more easy to manage and if arranged tastefully, also very appealing.
In large apartments, where the open spaces are those that prevail, the bar could be used as a separating element. Among the benefits, at first glance, it will mask a big part of the kitchen, it will serve as a breakfast table in the morning and as a bar in the evenings, it can be used as a buffet when you serve food etc. It’s also very convenient, when using it as a drinks bar or buffet, because you have a water tap nearby.
Whether the will be a freestanding build or, why not, a counter-top embedded into a wall, you must not overlook the seats, since they have a lot to say in matters of comfort. If you are among those who love rustic items and, more over, you are not afraid to undertake DIY projects, a bar should be your next project.
Four steel “legs”, a wooden plank which you have previously sanded with great care, some wrought iron rings and your bar is ready. All you have left to do is to acquire some old wines. You need to keep the theme all the way, isn’t it so? If you like the idea, you can also mount a matching shelf above the bar, and use it as a storage for more wine and your classy wine glasses.
