The Intricacies of Drinkscape Design

Once you have a high level plan for your home bar, it’s time to dive into the details of design. 

Select Your Bar Setup: Decide on the type of bar setup that suits your space and style. Options range from a full bar with stools, a standalone cabinet or two, or just a stylish bar cart that can be moved around as needed. Are you going for rustic? Or something more modern? 


Prioritize Storage: Choose shelving or cabinets that accommodate your bourbon collection, glassware, and bar accessories. Opt for open shelves to showcase your prized bottles and keep essentials at arm's reach.


Play with Lighting: Lighting can set the mood for your bourbon bar. Consider warm and ambient lighting to create a cozy and inviting ambiance. Install dimmers for added flexibility.

Comfortable Seating: If you plan to have seating, select bar stools that complement your design and provide comfort for extended relaxation.

Personal Touches: Add unique decor items that reflect your personality and passion for bourbon. Vintage bourbon posters, barrel-inspired art, or customized coasters can add character to your space.

Glassware and Accessories: Invest in quality bourbon glasses that enhance the tasting experience. Include accessories like cocktail shakers, muddlers, and stirrers to cater to different drink preferences.

Enhance with Garnishes: Elevate your bourbon bar with a variety of garnishes like citrus twists, cherries, and specialty bitters to create a well-rounded experience.

Collect Supplies: Purchase the furniture, decor, glassware, and accessories you've planned for. Ensure they align with your chosen design aesthetic.

Arrange Thoughtfully: Organize your bottles in an appealing and accessible manner. Arrange glassware, mixers, and tools logically to streamline your drink-making process.

Host a Tasting Night: Invite friends or family over to celebrate the completion of your home bourbon bar. Use this as an opportunity to get feedback, make adjustments, and enjoy some quality bourbon together.

Savor the Experience: With your home bar in place, take time to relish the experience you've created. Whether it's a solo tasting session or a gathering with loved ones, your thoughtfully designed space will enhance every moment.

Conclusion: Your Personal Drinkscape Awaits

Designing a home bar is a blend of creativity, personal taste, and meticulous planning. By following these steps, you'll transform a corner of your home into a haven where you can savor your spirits, entertain friends, and make lasting memories. From hunting and selecting your bottle collection to designing the perfect ambiance, crafting your own home bar is a rewarding journey that adds a touch of luxury to your lifestyle. Cheers to creating your very own drinkscape!
