When it comes to styling the home bar the devil is in the detail
So as lockdowns seem to come and go like the seasons the trip to local pub becomes a distant memory. Thousands of Brits aimed to combat the lack of pub-going by investing in a home pub, complete with bar and a selection of alcoholic favourites.
Setting up a home bar is quite easy and need not be an expensive venture. With a simple solution being a sideboard
Setting up a home bar is quite easy and need not be an expensive venture. As with every project though, there are more advanced options that will give you a vastly different experience. So whether you have a full-on, kitted out local at the bottom of your garden, or a sideboard dedicated to a bit of relaxation time, to get the authentic pub feel, you need to accessorise.
When it comes to setting the scene there are a good selection of items you can choose to give a home bar or garden pub the right feel. Why not invest in a handful of items to make the bar in the garden your new (very) local?
The full Monty
The complete home bar decor set from getitprinted.com will be a great start to styling your home bar.
The complete set includes a pub sign – personalised to your pub name and with a cheeky “Established date” or other message. This is the first step in making the home bar experience more closely resemble the real thing!
Next up in the set is the cocktail sign. Perfect as a reminder of the ingredients to make those fancy drinks a success! Obviously the measures are entirely up to the bar tender so this one opens the door for the fun to begin.
Bar snacks come neatly served up on your customised snacks holder card. Nothing says pub more than a pack of KP Nuts or pork scratchings hanging on the traditional snack board behind the bar. Again personalisedwith your bars name and slogan.
Clearly you need to establish some rules for your home bar to avoid any trouble makers! The complete set includes a list of common pub rules which the home bar owner can insist all patrons adhere to. It’s up to you if anyone gets barred from your garden pub, but these ground rules are a good start!
There’s also a pump clip in the complete set to demonstrate what’s on offer at the bar. This is great if you’ve got any special brews on tap or just to emphasise the bar feel. Again fully personalised with the name of the establishment or the beverage
