Give your style to the mini bar

Create Storage: Using built-in cabinets or large furniture can make your bar look more distinguished and showcase your liquor, drink ware and other bar accessories. Built-in cabinets are the most expensive option, but they also give your bar the most stately, permanent look. If built-in is too big of a task, using a buffet table, cabinet or bookshelf is another way to incorporate storage in your bar and feature fun pieces of furniture.
Buy a Freestanding Bar: If you have the space, a ready-made unit is the easiest way to add a bar to your home. These are available to purchase at many online retailers as well as furniture stores, and typically are constructed of either wood or composite wood. Things to consider when buying a freestanding bar include the size of your space, the style of the bar and whether you would like it to have a water hookup.
Make Room for Guests: Seating is key to having guests linger in your bar area, whether with traditional barstools or comfortable lounge seating. You want to have room for your guests to socialize comfortably; this can be as simple as adding a few vintage chairs near the bar or rearranging your space so that chairs, couches and other seating complement the bar area.
Think About Appliances: If you’re going to be playing bartender, you’ll need some ice and a place to keep your beverages cold. Small refrigerators can be placed within the lower cabinetry of your bar and come in a wide variety of styles and prices. A wine cooler is a perfect addition to a wine aficionado’s bar as well.
Get a Bar Cart: Not ready for a full-on renovation? A bar cart is an easy and inexpensive way to create a bar area and showcase specialty liquors, and it can be easily moved to different places in your home to serve different purposes (or parties). While there are plenty of options available at online retailers, you could also look at vintage shops, estate sales and thrift stores for a whimsical, one-of-a-kind piece.
