Home bar design in modern residential projects

According to a recent survey by spirits industry market analysis firm IWSR, 54% of online alcohol shoppers in the United States made their first purchase during the pandemic. Most consumers have decided to “indulge” in more expensive brands of spirits than usual, with many opting for the higher-shelf bottles to finally master the art of homemade cocktails – elaborate drinks to sip worthy of a larger investment. IWSR says these habits persist. With them comes the need for an aesthetic attack plan regarding the display of said expensive bottles: the architecture of the home bar.

Gone are the days of dark Prohibition-inspired back rooms and post-war basement bars. The home bar has officially become the center of modern residential designs and can perform a variety of functions for homeowners, interior designers and architects. In addition to being a gathering space for guests, many home bars now serve as architectural attractions in their own right and allow for the use of materials, furniture and surfaces that would be out of place in other buildings. other parts of the house. To inspire both amateur mixologists and design professionals alike (who says the two are mutually exclusive?), we’ve put together a list of top products from Architonic’s ‘drink cabinets’ section.
