Decorating ideas using wine themed canvas wall art….
If you entertain a lot of visitors and serve wine often to your dinner guests, you might as well set-up a mini-bar in one part of your home. Having a cocktail bar at your house completes the look for a sociable host who always entertains and gives friends a good time when they visit you.
To begin this new addition to your home, start by making a list of things you want to decorate with in your cocktail bar such as wine themed canvas wall art, wine racks, liquor and wine glasses, and cocktail accessories.
Then think of a good location in your house. Most guests congregate in the kitchen, den or back patio. A basement is also a good place to put a mini-bar. Assign one side or your den as your cocktail bar. If you BBQ a lot why not set up a bar in your back porch? Place some leather seats or other contemporary furniture near your mini-bar aside from bar stools. Avoid using bright white light and instead, use lampshades, pin lights, and a dimmer. A soft amber glow would be perfect for a cocktail area.
Install an overhead wire rack for your wine and cocktail glasses. Before purchasing expensive glasses for your bar, think about the most common drink you will serve and buy more of those. So if you will be offering more red wine than champagne, you can buy a dozen red wine glasses and just a few champagne flutes.
If you will serve margaritas more often than martinis, get more margarita glasses and a couple of margarita pitchers than martini glasses. Decorate your bar with a beer bong.
Place a beer keg somewhere behind the bar. Decorate your walls in the room with wine themed canvas wall art. You are going to have to buy ice buckets and wine openers. You might as well buy those that look decorative to add more flair to your home mini-bar.
Provide enough storage space behind your bar for glass coasters, stirrers, shakers and strainers. If you have the budget for it, get a small wine fridge or a decorative wine rack. Don’t forget to set-up your sound system in the same room as your cocktail lounge. When you get your wine canvas wall art, take measurements first to determine what size you need.
