Home bar spaces are usually associated with liquor storage or prep, as well as 1970s design aesthetic of “mirrored backdrops and cheesy lighting”, according to Abbey Crain at The Wall Street Journal. But some buyers have commissioned home bar spaces built around more specific preparation needs, such as juice, smoothies, and coffee – with sleek contemporary looks to match.
One Los Angeles home features a full post-workout bar alongside its home gym, with both glass and granite countertops and cabinetry built by Closet Factory, an LA-based storage-systems company. Another breakfast-oriented bar, this one designed for a Manhattan home by Petit Lau, is built around the feel of a neighborhood café, including a chalkboard menu and wooden accents.
Pricing for each of the four featured home bars ranges between $10,000 and $24,000.
