Adding greenery can only make it look better. You can also add small crystal showpieces or metal decor items.

Living room

Be sure to add bar stools so that there is no dearth of places to sit and have a spacious counter to serve.

Dining room

In most of the homes, dining rooms are almost always busy with people eating their breakfast together, having a chat over brunch or having a dinner party. While sideboards can be sufficient to place dinner sets, utensils and dining items, a wine cupboard can also make sense in the dining room. It can be easier to serve the wine while dining or if you are having a small brunch, you can pour out the champagnes quicker.

Make sure to brighten up the decor with enough lighting and create an accent with colourful wall decor or a mirror above.

A Lone Corner

In many homes, there is often a corner in a room that is not much decorated. You can change that by placing a simple and tall bar cabinet that can fit into the narrow space and have enough vertical storage capacity. You can also try a built-in bar in the wall of that corner if you have a space crunch. Add two bar stools to create a cosy drinking nook. You can add a small coffee table as well. To decorate a liquor cart in the narrow corner, choose simple decor pieces like a small flower pot with a sapling or a small figurine. The decor should not clutter the space; instead, add a touch of class with subtlety.

Below the stairs

For duplex apartments or homes, the space below the stairs is usually left unattended. It can be utilised by placing a small yet stylish wine counter. If there is not enough space, choose a simple cart with wheels that can be moved. The cart can hold liquor bottles, beers and few glasses. You add a small chair with a backrest to help you relax while you enjoy your drink. You can add a floor vase as an accent to make the place stand out. If there is not enough light, a floor lamp can be added as well.

Outdoor or Patio

Sometimes even though you love the design of the bar counter for sale at the store, the indoor decor of your house does not suit the style. In such cases, you may place it in the patio if you have one! Many people love to enjoy their drinks while rejuvenating in the midst of nature. An outdoor liquor cupboard can work very well for them.

Just choosing the perfect location and adding some nice looking bottles can do the trick as it has open shelves to showcase everything. You can place two or three bar stools made from natural materials like rattan or solid wood to match the cupboard and enjoy a drink with your friends.
