Living Room Bar Design Improvement

Do you want a new look for your living room? Let the experts from Top Drawer North help you decorate your living room to give it a fresh new look. We were asked to design a bar for the family room in this Hawthorne, New Jersey home. This bar is by far one of the most challenging home remodeling projects we have designed & built. Most bars are built against a wall, however in this home the customer wanted the bar to be placed in the center of this large family room & it is the focal point of the room. The customer also wanted this bar to be as large as it could be! Since the bar is in the middle of the room and can be seen from all different areas of the room it was absolutely critical that its looks good from all angles. In addition to that the customer had very specific requirements for the bar & we were able to deliver! The bar has three different levels and the four Wenge wood supports I designed had to hold a lot of weight from the bar top. Due to the size of the bar we decided to angle it out into the room to create a comfortable seating area that was still easily reachable by the bartender. The Zebra wood has a polyester finish on the outside and a satin finish in the bartender area. The customer chose two different types of granite for the tops in order to create contrast and a less homogeneous look due to size. The grain of the Zebra wood running up and down plays well with the overall look. We have also included some images of the bar as it was being built so you can see the work in progress. Take a look at the window seat area we also designed to compliment the bar in this family room. CLICK ON PHOTOGRAPHS BELOW TO ENLARGE
