Have a Solid Plan

Step 1: Define Your Vision 

Think about the ambiance and atmosphere you want your home bourbon bar to exude. Do you envision a classic speakeasy vibe, a rustic countryside feel, or a modern and sleek setup? Clarifying your vision will guide your design decisions.


Step 2: Assess Your Space: 

Whether you're transforming a nook, a spare room, or a corner of your living space, evaluate the available area. This assessment will help you choose the appropriate furnishings and layout that make the most of your space.


Step 3: Set a Budget: 

Determine how much you're willing to invest in your home bourbon bar. Having a budget in mind will prevent overspending and guide your choices.
