Every bench, sideboard, bookcase or side table, when free, can be the basis for a home bar.

One way to simplify things is to mount this small bar on a tray – which can be aluminum, wood, wicker or more noble materials such as silver.

On it can be placed both the preferred beverage bottles and utensils, such as buckets, glasses and corkscrews. Crystal bottles are very welcome, too.


Minibars on trays are a very good alternative for small apartments. But when you have more space, you can develop a bigger and even more complete home bar.

In this case, an excellent idea is to plan a special piece of furniture for this. It is very common to install the home bar in American kitchens, dividing the living room and kitchen and, of course, on your gourmet balcony.
