-Play around with fun glassware. A bar isn't made to be full of decorations so you have to spice up the space somehow! Add some colorful vintage pressed glass or some silver flutes! Allow your personality to show through. If you want to go the clear route, play with shapes to add some interest.

-Invest in bar tools! Here are some to get you started: a good sized shaker, a sturdy knife with a serrated blade for cutting citrus, a cutting board, a jigger, containers for simple syrups and juices, a wine key, a stylish bar key, a muddler, and some towels.

-Start your collection slow, you always have less space than you think you do. Pick 3 or 4 spirits you know you enjoy and go from there.

-If you have the space, allow yourself 4 feet between the countertop and the bar for ample room for the bartender.

Using plates/baskets as wall art is a great alternative to canvas. If you choose this route, you can switch out the plates and colors every season! When your furniture and large pieces are neutral you can really play with the accessories and easily switch things up when you need some change. Remember this when you are shopping for large items.
