Project Spotlight: A Bespoke Bar and Media Unit for Effortless Entertaining

We believe in creating homes that are not just beautiful, but also eminently liveable. Nowhere is this more evident than in our recently completed project, where a bespoke bar area seamlessly blends with a stunning media unit to form the heart of an inviting, entertaining space.

The Allure of the Bespoke Bar

The centrepiece of this space is the undeniably striking bespoke bar. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, Butler cabinetry has been painted in our captivating blue, Inky Sky. This deep, luxurious hue creates an air of sophistication, perfect for setting the mood for an evening of conversation and conviviality. But beyond aesthetics, functionality reigns supreme. The bar boasts a range of features designed to elevate your entertaining experience, ensuring everything you need for a memorable gathering is close at hand.

Behind bi-folding doors, the tap and sink arrangement ensures a smooth flow to beverage service, while the under-counter refrigeration keeps drinks at the perfect temperature. The luxurious quartz worktop adds a further layer of refinement. Its polished surface not only reflects light beautifully, creating a sense of spaciousness but also offers exceptional durability.

The final touch of luxury comes from mirrored-backed open shelves and our exclusive burnished brass GM handles. These unique details add a touch of distinctiveness, ensuring the bar area becomes a talking point among guests.

The Beauty of Bespoke: A Media Unit Fit for Entertainment

Also featuring Butler cabinetry, the media wall is more than just a functional piece of furniture; it’s a statement piece designed to lift the space’s overall aesthetic. Its refined design, characterised by clean lines and a timeless silhouette, perfectly complements the elegance of the opposite bar area.

Bespoke Media Wall

Creating a cohesive space is all about balancing different elements while maintaining a sense of visual harmony. In this project, we achieved this by carefully layering paint colours and finishes. The Inky Sky of the bar area provides a dramatic anchor, while the Tansy painted finish of the bespoke media wall offers a warm counterpoint.

The open shelves on the media wall further accentuate the rich contrast between the two colours. Whether showcasing treasured artworks, dinnerware or books, this media wall ensures everything is presented in the best possible light.

A Summer Entertaining Oasis

As the summer months approach, the prospect of hosting gatherings with friends and family becomes all the more appealing. A bespoke bar area, like the one featured in this project, is the perfect addition to creating a dedicated space for relaxed entertaining.

Imagine balmy evenings spent enjoying a refreshing drink with loved ones. The under-counter refrigeration ensures drinks and nibbles stay perfectly chilled, while the integrated sink allows for effortless cleanup.

The bespoke media unit, meanwhile, provides a focal point for conversation and entertainment. Whether enjoying a movie night or simply catching up on your favourite shows, the warm ambience and sophisticated design create a truly inviting space to unwind.
