Home bar styling ideas for a chic cocktail station go stylishly beyond a portable card table or kitchen counter space. The home bar serves up more than just cocktails when the spirits, wine, bar and glassware and beverage accouterments is displayed on a styled cart, cabinet, accent table, bookshelf, inside an antique armoire or atop a mid-century modern credenza.
Let me expand on that thought. A stylish home bar can begin with atop a portable card table or kitchen counter. The mix and the marvel is in the decorative details, proportion and placement.
Styling a home bar works off the same principle applied to styling a coffee table. X marks the center spot- the prime location for a medium or low height object placement. The “outer” areas balance the method with graduated heights to continue the flow, theme and visual engagement.
