Amazing Home Bar Design: ‘The Eclectic Pub’ Photos + Specs

Stone. Reclaimed tin. Gorgeous wood. Statement lighting. Spiral staircase. Hold on tight; this home bar design is a jaw-dropper.

It all starts with the woodwork. Beautifully rich and finished to a radiant ‘nutty’ glow, the wood elements of this home pub are the foundation and backbone of the design. From the flooring to the door trim, the cabinetry to the ceiling to the perimeter of the glass feature wall component, wood provides the feeling of being ‘at home’ that every great bar (even the most luxurious ones) exudes.

And let’s talk about the feature wall. Recessed lighting radiates out from behind an opaque pane of glass, drawing your focus to the glass shelving suspended between the ceiling and counter. It’s a stunning set of glass design elements that seem to hang in mid-air away from the structure of the bar’s wood features. If the wood and stone of this home bar are the skeleton and body, then the feature wall is certainly the jewelry.

A recurring theme in some of Peter Salerno’s best kitchen and bar designs is the used of reclaimed tin. From former bars and speakeasy joints to Route 66 gas stations, Peter sources tin from some of America’s most unique locations for use in his award-winning designs. In this case, reclaimed tin is treated and used in the center panels of the bar and cabinetry elements. Shades of brown, green and gold blend delicately against the woodwork and cabinet handles and finishing hardware.

As if the home bar design itself wasn’t enough, the stonework puts this pub over the top. With recessed sections that act as shelving for premier bottles of wine and liquor, this well-lit stone area also acts as a stairwell for a descending spiral metal staircase.

Cap all these stunning elements off with sturdy brown counters and smart lighting fixtures, and you have a winning ‘Eclectic Pub’ design indeed.
