Luxury Home Bar Designs
Use Dramatic Natural Stone To Make It Unique
If you want to design one of a kind, stand out luxury bar, then select a bold and dramatic natural stone. You will need to look for natural stones like quartzite or marbles. Quartzite are natural stone that very colorful and have dramatic contrasting vein pattern.
Black marbles and granites with white veins are also a very good option.
You can use the natural stone on just the countertop or go all out with installing it as a backsplash too.

This eye-catching design by Morrison Interiors used the dramatic quartzite with the perfect tile on the back wall. My favorite detail are the light fixtures.
Use Translucent Stone that backlights
There are natural stones that are translucent, that means when you put a light source behind or underneath them, it illuminates. Cristallo Quartzite, Onyx and Precious stone slabs are a good option for creating a backlit countertop or wall.
Interior Designer Fran of Deleo & Flectcher Design used Semi-precious agate stone that can be backlighted to create the drama in this luxury bar.
If you have a nook that you want to function as a bar, look no further. Designer Tiffany of Paige design group created this luxurious inviting wet bar using Cristallo Quartzite on the countertop and back wall.

Use Bold Paint Color to create Drama
If you are a color lover like me, you can use bold colors like Red, Green or black paint on the cabinetry and wall to create the drama.
This unique and very luxurious bar is designed by Interior designer Jared Hughes. The bold green marble with green cabinet color makes it so unique.
Use Floating Shelves That Serve as form & Function
Floating shelves give the space a clean functional vibe adding a focal element where you can display Art, small plants or even your drink ware and drink bottles that also acts as the decor.
I love the use of so many details in this bar. The dramatic Quartzite stone, the floating shelves and the gold accents.
Use Pattern or Dimensional Tiles to create the focal point
I am a tile lover and can browse the instagram and Pinterest for hours just looking for unique options. Textured, dimensional or pattern tiles give an extra layer of luxury. There are metallic tiles that can really elevate your luxury design.
Use Gold Accents
Gold light or plumbing fixtures really add that luxe feel to any space. You can also dress the space with gold accent bar stools. Find the gold finish you like because there are a lot of options. If you don’t like the bright shiny gold, opt for a matte version or vice versa.
In summary, mix and match any of the above combinations to create the one of a kind luxury bar for your home.
