How To Create Your Perfect Outdoor Home Bar
Spring is here and with it, comes warm temperatures and an urge to get outside! Now is a great time to work on your outdoor area and create your perfect home bar. Make your garden the go-to spot by taking advantage of our outdoor home bar ideas.
Home Bar Unit
The first step to creating this outdoor space is deciding on the type of bar that you want. Do you need a large bar for weekend parties, or are you going to need something smaller for after a long day at the office?
If you’re looking for a home bar that does all the work, then our Industrial Style Home Bar Unit is the one for you! Made with a steel-constructed base and reclaimed pine top, the bar has a space for a beer fridge, too! This has industrial written all over it, featuring a top shelf for glassware, a wine rack and drawers, the bar units can be slotted together to create a larger bar with plenty of room for condiments and cocktail equipment.
If your space is slightly on the smaller side, there’s still plenty of ways to create your perfect outdoor home bar. We recommend having a portable drinks trolley for sipping your favourite liquors. From martinis to mojitos, an Industrial Cocktail Trolley is the must-have accessory for any home bar. With two drawers to the top which can be filled with ice and used as ice buckets, you’ll still have ample storage and space to entertain guests.
For an authentic outdoor bar experience, make sure yours has space to pull a couple of bar stools. Outdoor stools are designed to cope with the weather conditions they might face - so even if you plan to bring them indoors overnight, you don't need to panic in the event of a sudden summertime downpour.
Made from sustainable steel and plastic, the Eco-Friendly Bar Stools are a fantastic outdoor choice. The seats and back are made out of 100% recyclable plastic, while the British steel that forms the frame is over 70% recyclable.
Similarly, our Summer Outdoor Bar Stools are guaranteed to inject a little bit of colour into your outdoor area. Sitting on steel, powder-coated frames, the wooden slatted seats have been treated with an Osmo Oil finish – so they’re perfect for outdoor seating.
The Finishing Touches
An important outdoor bar tip is when it comes to drinkware, go for unbreakable glasses and serve ware to avoid breakages on the patio. You’ll also want somewhere to store and keep cool beer and other beverages. Try using an Ice Box Beer Cooler for a stylish and practical storage solution.
Finally, don’t forget the ambience! If you’re using your outdoor bar at night, place string lights or lanterns around your bar to add a romantic glow when the sun goes down. Then sit back, relax, and enjoy your perfect bar!
