Right in your own backyard bar!
No curfews, no driving, no worries.
Family and friends will be begging to join you (just try to stop them!).
Here’s how to create a backyard bar in 5 easy steps.
1. First things first: Create Space
First up, you’ll need a space to house your bar supplies & serve drinks from.
You’ll want to make sure it’s lockable and secure; so it can be used year-round.
A quick & easy solution is a Garden Room. Made-to-order in a few weeks. Delivered & built for you in one day.
We recommend including some or all of these features:
- A side entry door
- Deck/Verandah for shade + seating
- Large sliding window for serving
- Small sliding window (position this opposite the serving window, for cross-ventilation).
2. Add a bench
TIP: ServiceSeeking.com.au is a great place to find qualified local tradies in your area
3. Add bar stools/seating
Once your bench is in, hunt down some stylish stools to sit at your bar window.
TIP: Temple & Webster and Freedom have some great outdoor furniture options.
Make sure you check measurements before purchasing, as you want the stools to suit the height of your bench.
For something a little comfier, add some outdoor lounges & cushions.
4. Fit out the inside of your backyard bar
Start with what style you’re going for inside your bar.
Are you going for a basic serving area with storage cupboards, a fridge and a sink?
Or a sleek cocktail lounge, where you might want to include comfortable seating, elegant lights, a metallic bar cart and plush cushions?
TIP: Create a Backyard Bar Pinboard. This will help you bring your ideas together and stick to your colour scheme. You can also add products to your board as you find them, for example bar stools, a bar cart, paint colours etc. #yeswelovepinterest #addicted
5. Finishing Touches
Once your backyard bar is fitted out inside and out, its time to add the finishing touches.
A few coats of paint are essential. We recommend using a similar colour scheme to your house for a sleek, coordinated look.
Add an ice bucket for keeping drinks cool, and string up some lights to make evenings with friends just a little more magical.
Once your Backyard Bar is complete, just invite your family and friends and you’ve got all the elements for a good time.
