A bar is a common sight in any home, especially for younger homeowners who love to savor a Friday night cocktail or having people over. Some have rolling bar carts, others incorporate it as a permanent design element, while a handful create makeshift stations. However, at the end of the day, it should serve a purpose—to keep party essentials organized. If you need some fresh ideas on how to style yours, here are some photo pegs that will inspire you to get started: 

If you don't have room for a bar in your kitchen, all you have to do is look up—maximize the space overhead by creating a proper wine rack. For bigger collections, you can build extra shelves on the side (as seen in photo) as well.

Styling doesn't always have to be so complicated. If you don't have a real bar, you can repurpose a basic, all-white console table and use it to display fancy liquor. To keep it from looking too plain, you can add minimalist-inspired decor, too.

A glass shelf is great if you want a luxe aesthetic. To achieve a complete display, you can organize it with your drinking glasses—make sure to use high-end pieces to complete the look.

Going for something a little more quirky? Set a backdrop for your wine and champagne bottles with contemporary artwork. Don't forget to add pops of color for a lively feel.

For a sleek display, dark and moody colors are the way to go. A midnight blue or a black shelf is sure to bring out the details in expensive liquor bottles, plus, it gives your home a more pub-like vibe, too.
