If you are someone who loves hosting and entertaining friends and family, then having your own home bar is a great idea. While good music and great food are crucial for throwing a party, having a personalized bar stocked with all your essentials gives you that edge. It can be a special space that has your personal touch, where you can enjoy your favourite drink with your loved ones. However, achieving that perfect blend of sophistication and your personality doesn't mean you have to splurge. With creativity and resourcefulness, you can put together a home bar that is inviting without burning a hole in your pocket.

Here are four ways to decorate your home bar on a budget:

1.Find your style

Identifying your personal style is the first step towards creating a home bar that resonates with your tastes and sensibilities. Before diving into purchases or designs, introspect and define what aesthetic truly speaks to you. Whether it's the vintage charm of antique-looking bar accessories, the sleek appeal of modern glassware, or a casual vibe—the most crucial step is to know what aesthetic speaks to you. Recognizing your style preference ensures every piece you pick is a step toward a cohesive and budget-friendly design that feels authentically 'you'. At Pure Home + Living, we have options for every mood and style.

2.Find stylish decorations that add a personal touch

Scour through your travel souvenirs and old belongings for unique items that can be repurposed. Old wooden crates can be used around the bar area for a vintage appeal. Place our table mats and hurricanes in gold to complete the look. Showcase your collection of glasses, and bottles in a way that saves space and lends style. At Pure Home + Living, you can find a wide range of glasses within your budget that will equip you to serve in style.
Choose the shades according to your theme and preference from timeless colours like blue, amber, red, green, and clear. You can even place old cocktail recipe cards, vintage labels from liquor bottles, and complete the look with Pure Home + Living’s hand stitched leather coasters.

3.Add plants to your home bar: Lend greenery to your space

A touch of greenery can make any space lively. Opt for artificial plants or succulents as they don’t require any upkeep and look great too. Or opt for small herb plants like mint or basil and sow them in chic pots, as they will come in handy for your cocktails. Pure Home + Living’s collection of artificial plants comes with life-like details and textures. Place them as is or pair them with pots from PHL’s collection to elevate the look and make the space feel lively and inviting.

4.Set the mood with lighting

You can use budgeted options like fairy lights that will instantly elevate the mood. Drape them around the bar or hang them in a pattern on the wall behind for a twinkling backdrop. You can also put those fairy lights in old mason jars or wine bottles and place them on the racks for a cool D.I.Y. addition. If lamps are more your thing, mix and match a lamp shade with a stand crafted in porcelain or glass from Pure Home + Living to add elegance and opulence to the space. Our collection features modern and contemporary options along with classic ones that will never go out of style. The collection features crystal and ceramic that will make a subtle and effortless style statement.

Whether you are a wine aficionado, a cocktail connoisseur, or simply someone who loves entertaining guests, these ideas will definitely come in handy if you are looking to set up your very own bar at home.
