One of the exclusive features for a simple living room is a chic mini bar. Probably, you have never thought to install a mini bar because you only focus on the living room furniture pieces like sofa set and coffee table. You can increase the comfort and function of a living room with a stylish mini bar. Invite family and friends and serve them with the best collection of liquor. Create a unique concept so that people can have a wonderful experience when they visit you at home.
Selecting the mini bar
Mini bar is available in many furniture stores in various designs, styles, colors and materials. The size should be selected according to the design and shape of the living room. A simple one with a built in cabinet is more preferable for the people who have many liquors and glasses to display. Pick the one created from the high quality hardwood if you want to show some elegance in the living room. It may features shelves and racks. A small fridge located next to the mini bar is just great.
The additional furniture pieces
You will need a comfortable seating around the mini bar to support its function. There are various types of chairs to get. If your mini bar has a counter height design, opt for simple stools or high chairs. They are available in many designs, shapes and styles. Make sure that the new chairs match with the recent mini bar. If you have a traditional mini bar design, pair it with some brown leather ladder-back or cross back chairs with arms. They provide excellent comfort. If you want to get a modern or futuristic effect, a simple bar swivel chair is nice.
How to accessorize mini bar
Mini bar should never look plain. Hang colorful glass pendant lamps above the mini bar for sparkling effect. Pick the one with a dimmer switch to reduce the intensity of light and build warmth. The top of the mini bar may feature a vase of flowers or candles if you decide to build romantic flair.
