The 21st century has bought with it a wave of advancement, pushing us to live a better lifestyle and enhance the styling of our homes. Fancy furniture, linen, decor, and crockery – what was once a factor of awe have now become commonplace and dominate the aesthetics of any household. For those looking to stand a class apart, it can get quite tricky. But there’s one element that is yet to catch on and can be a stand-out feature in your home – an in-built home bar. The days are long gone when a bar used to be a prohibited section in the house kept hidden away in backrooms or basements. Now, bar units have become an eye-catching addition for interior designers, architects, and homeowners looking to add a flavor of fun to their aesthetic. These units provide an additional layer of luxury, comfort, and convenience for enjoying your favorite scotch and homemade cocktails on a pleasant evening.
But a built-in bar is more than just a prized collection of liquor because it needs the right accessories to complete it. Let us take a look at some of the most trending barware essentials for your in-built home bar:
There are over 30 types of suggested glassware associated with the setup of the bar units but the most important ones to start with are the Martini, Shot, Champagne, Tall Cocktail, and Wine glasses. Then there is another category like rock glasses, coupe glasses, and Collins glasses. Rock glasses are ideal when for muddling and mixing drinks. Coupe glasses do not need ice for the drink. You can simply strain the drink in the glass so that the liquid rests below the rim. Collins glasses are best suited if you plan to drink a lot. Invest in a variety of glasses to give your mini-bar a sparkling, ‘glassy’ appeal.
