The time for entertaining and socialising is now upon us. There’s Firework night, Christmas and New Year all in the space of a couple of months. If you are lucky enough to have a bar in your home then it is more than likely that you will be doing a lot of entertaining in the coming weeks! That’s why you have the bar right?! So let Love4Lighting help you with some ideas for lights for a home bar…
Unless you have a very large home, it is unlikely that your home bar is the size of a commercial bar. Home bars are usually small and intimate and situated in the corner of a living space or open plan area. When considering lights for a home bar you have the opportunity to get really creative and create a trendy, relaxed atmosphere during parties and gatherings. Pendant lights work really well when fitted over the bar top. You can purchase the pendant lights as singles, two or threes and a nice design touch is to have a pendant light for each stool you have at the bar, so each person sitting at your home bar will have their own intimate light! We have some quality pendant lights and rise and fall lights that work really well as lights for a home bar. Whatever the style of your interior – traditional, rustic, modern – there are styles and finishes that fit, all available at prices to suit any budget.
If you have a home bar then it is a good idea to showcase what you are ‘selling’. Spotlights are definitely worth considering as lights for a home bar as you can direct the beam towards the single malts, brandies and wines that you have behind the bar. This style of light also creates a nice mood around the bar and will encourage people to unwind and relax.
If you want to try something a bit more modern and trendy, then strip lighting is a versatile and affordable lighting option when looking at lights for a home bar. This type of lighting is always seen in public bars and restaurants and is usually fitted along the underside of bar tops, along the bottom of bar tops or around cabinets and shelving. Strip lighting is easy to install and very reliable and we have a couple of great options to look at here.
So, there you have it. Some ideas for lights for home bars. Happy partying!
