Why Bars Are Making A Comeback

Built in bars were popularized in the 1970s and 1980s, but recently have made a comeback. More and more people are seeing their home as a place to entertain family and friends, opting for open floor plans, great rooms and even outdoor kitchens. Having the ultimate home for entertaining demands a signature bar that reflects your fun side. Bars are extremely practical for hosting guests in spaces that are farther away from the kitchen. For people who like to entertain, but don’t want to have to leave the action to fix drinks, a bar makes it easy to prepare drinks while continuing to enjoy your guests. Most commonly, clients ask Concept II for bar design and installation in their dining room, den or basement. With the warm Summer weather upon us, having an outdoor bar makes your backyard the ultimate entertainment space.

Bar Features

With some help from our sister company, Concept II Kitchen & Bath, you can choose all of the features and details of your perfect bar. Features could include wine racks, glass cabinet doors, wine coolers, sinks, and almost anything else you need to host an awesome party.

Choosing Tile

In our tile shop the fun begins! Our tile designers relish in bar backsplash projects because they’re a small area of the home where clients can make more exciting choices. A bar backsplash can really set the mood for the space, without completely departing from the style of the rest of the home.

Setting the Tone

Creating the mood for your bar area is easy with so many moody, romantic, elevated and sparkly tiles to choose from; keeping in mind the bar area can be little bit more dressed up than the rest of the kitchen or home. Many of our clients choose mirror or antique mirror, glass or metal for their bar backsplashes.

Finishing Touches

Once your bar is completed, all you’ll have left to do is pour a drink and enjoy it!
