A Guide to Having A Home Bar

Home Bar with Bar Stools and Drinks Trolleys

Having a home bar is the ultimate goal for many homeowners. Going bar hopping with friends can be great fun up until a certain age, when staying at home and entertaining guests in your very own home bar, becomes the more appealing option. A home bar can be the ultimate hanging out spot, providing the ideal scene for entertaining friends or unwinding after a long day.

Making drinks at home and calling over friends and family for a night in can be great fun, and a lot cheaper than going out! Especially in the colder months, your guests will appreciate the home bar much more and insist on regular get-togethers.

Home bars have become an ever-increasing option for many people. Some new homes come with dedicated spaces for home bars. Whether you are redecorating the whole house, or just want to redo a part of the house to fit in your home bar, at CIMC we have the essentials you’ll need to make this happen. 

Where should my home bar go?

Deciding on where to have the home bar, if you have not already, is the first thing you must consider. This is an important decision to make, as you need to ensure you have sufficient space bearing in mind the number of guests you are likely to have on regular nights in.

Our advice is to ensure wherever your home bar will be, that space is the dedicated home bar space, and not a temporary/general storage area. It is best not to have your home bar furniture mix with other equipment. Having a dedicated space will allow you and your guests to enjoy the experience much more.

This dedicated bar space can very well be in the kitchen. Depending on the style and size of your kitchen, you may have a little section of your kitchen you could turn into a home bar. Other locations could be in your dining room, living room, your basement or even in the garden. Keep in mind, wherever you choose, you’ll need to ensure there is electricity and water access set up and available.

What will I need?

Apart from the liquor, you will need to ensure you have the all essential equipment to create your home bar. At CIMC home we have a dedicated range of home bar furniture, which means, whatever style and look you are going for, you are bound to find all the necessary items you need with CIMC Home.


Firstly, you’ll need a shelving unit to showcase all the drinks options to the guests. At CIMC you will find a selection of classy shelving units that would be ideal for any home bar design. Our Logan Showcase Display unit is one that is sure to catch the eye.

Having a bar cart or drink trolley, is also ideal for those who don’t have space for a dedicated home bar. In that case, this can be used to transport the drinks and glasses to the chosen relaxing area. Trying with the contemporary home bar theme, our Harry Mirror drinks trolley is a perfect fit. Simple and stylish, this trolley is a great way to keep drinks and glasses handy when entertaining.
