The Home Drinks Bar

This Ash Home Drinks Bar creates a private nook in an open plan living space to entertain, discuss or simply to contemplate. It is modest and functional and has a quiet sophistication about it that suits the space perfectly.

Rather than a more elaborate Cocktail bar, this client wanted a simple, discreet looking bar area, away from the kitchen but attached to the lounge in an open plan living space, to prepare and share drinks. It was to be functional and easy to clean and maintain.

We have used a characterful Ash and a simple Shaker style of cabinetry with a raised panel. The horizontal lines of the wall units grow into the room connecting the spaces. The worktops are a concrete looking composite creating an organic feel whilst being easy to maintain. There is a wine fridge, sink, pull out larder for spirits, glass storage and incorporated ambient lighting.

It is easy to keep clean and tidy and also a nice spot for coffee.

From The Customer...

“I rarely post reviews but felt compelled to do so because of the outstanding craftsmanship of Sjouke and his team at Hout Design. The standard of work was of the highest quality, the attention to detail was impeccable and of a standard exceeding what one would expect of custom made furniture. Sjouke and his team collaborated with us from start to finish to help us achieve our vision! This was not an easy project as the design had to accommodate beams and vaulted ceilings. Hout Design also crafted a custom office furniture, fireplace hearth, floating wall shelves, and a wet bar. We would absolutely recommend them without hesitation.”
