Industrial Home Bar Ideas & Lighting Inspiration
If you're looking for inspiration for a home bar then look no further. We've collated an extensive number of industrial style home bar ideas and home bar lighting inspiration from our range of vintage & industrial style light fixtures.
1. The Garage Home Bar
Adding a bar area to your garage is a great idea. Tinkering with your motor over the weekend with a beer from your garage home bar sounds like perfect relaxation. This reclaimed and repurposed example below was designed and built by The Nailormade.
The industrial style home bar shares a corner of a garage with a Porsche 911. The bar top is made of reclaimed wood and the lighting is all vintage industrial metal light fixtures. Light fixtures includes footlights under the bar, a vintage wall strip light modified with LED Edison Filament tubes, metal nautical ceiling pendants and in the main garage area there are some large green enamel factory pendants by Thorlux. A great variety of lighting options for this multi purpose space.
2. Home Bar Feature Lighting
Making sure you have enough light over your bar is essential. Hanging multiple feature lights low over your bar area will not only give your home bar character but also the right amount of ambience.
3. Basement Home Bar
Got an empty basement? Why not turn it into a home bar. It'll be dark down there so adding ceiling lighting, wall lighting, foot lights and floor lamps is the way forward. Don't skimp on lighting!
4. Outdoor Garden Home Bar
Not all of us are lucky enough to have such an amazing space like this outdoor garden bar below, which doubles up as an outdoor kitchen. Using reclaimed industrial lights for a space like this is ideal. They are robust and can often withstand extreme conditions so you won't need to worry about leaving them outside in inclement weather.
5. DIY Home Bar
Handy with a screwdriver? Then this is a great idea for a DIY home bar using reclaimed wood. With a fold down bar top and built in storage for all your bar paraphenalia this compact bar could be mounted to the wall indoors or out.
These small wall spot lights can be used alone or in multiples to create a lovely light effect. They can be used either indoors or outdoors. Neaten up any electrical cables that you're unable to hide with metal conduit to complete the industrial vibe.
6. Rustic Home Bar
The corrugated roof in the example below is an inexpensive way to cover a home bar. So if you're on a budget lean into the rustic home bar style, by sourcing reclaimed and repurposed materials.
7. Miami Vice Home Bar
Ok, so this pink home bar is not exactly industrial themed.....more Miami Vice. But if you're looking for pink fittings and fixtures to brighten up your home bar, then look no further. In our workshop we can take bespoke requests for most of our light fixtures. We paint our fixtures all sorts of colours and different finishes. Whether pink, blue, green, orange...you name it, we can do it.
8. Monochrome home bars
If you love the simplicity of a black and white interior, then check out this small monochrome home bar which uses a black metro tile and industrial cage wall light. Simple and effective, this home bar has got everything you need.
9. Shiny Industrial Home Bars
Using mirrors is a great idea not only to help make a small space seem larger, but as with the example below also gives the bar a sophisticated edge. This shiny look can be paired with industrial fixtures and fittings to balance the design and not make it overtly slick. Here they have used multiple industrial style cantilever wall lamps high up on the wall alongside modern LED strips along the edge of the bar shelves. The mirror helps to bounce the light around the space making it feel really well illuminated.
View our range of custom industrial style cantilever wall lights. Choose which metal finish you want for the wall arm fixture and also what length you want it to be. Then customise the colour of the lamp shade to suit your home bar interior.
10. Small Home Bar
This industrial style bar below can be translated into a small home bar by creating a small wall mounted table top with over head light, creating a cosy place to enjoy a glass of red. This cantilever wall light is a clever solution when you don't have the option of ceiling lighting. It's also a good way of extending lighting low over a table to create cosy "private dining" style ambience. You can hide cables inside the electrical conduit to keep everything neat.
These lamps can be used with a dimmer to keep lighting levels low. They can also be used with or without the copper shades. Please get in touch for custom projects.
11. Exposed Features Home Bar
If you have exposed industrial style features in your home bar, don't hide them! Like the example below with exposed conduit on the ceiling and open metal shelving. Make a feature out of them. Expand on the theme by adding more industrial fixtures & fittings.
