BOWA Sees Growing Trend of Customized Home Bars in Washington, D.C. Area Luxury Homes

BOWA (, a home transformation company specializing in the design and construction of large-scale additions and renovations, is seeing more homeowners in the Washington, D.C. area ask for unique, custom home bars to add elegance and function to their remodeling projects.

“A home bar is a great place to entertain family and friends in a memorable setting from the comfort and safety of your own home,” said Larry Weinberg, CEO of BOWA. “There are many exciting options available to homeowners that ensure a bar space is transformed into an alluring entertaining area that suits personal taste and lifestyle.”

From a “Cheers” style bar, to a wine cellar and tasting room, the options are endless. Some ideas include:

  • Classic Pub Style: Reminiscent of a “Cheers” style bar or a traditional Irish pub, this popular design idea never goes out of style. Some distinct features of this type of bar are pull up-seating, hand-crafted wood detailing, warm lighting and an inviting ambiance.
  • Contemporary Elegance: Another popular style for a modern look are bars with contemporary elegance generally including sleek granite countertops and chrome or stainless steel fixtures and hardware.
  • A “Home” Run: For sport fans, there are many options in creating an authentic sports bar. For example, adding large-screen TVs as well as a pool table, dart board, and even arcade games can make a fun atmosphere.
  • For The Wine Connoisseur: Wine enthusiasts should consider adding a wine cellar or tasting room for their bar space. Having a professionally-designed wine cellar or wine tasting room allows homeowners to protect their collection in a secure, climate-controlled environment.
  • Ultimate Home Entertainment: Incorporating a bar within a home theater is another way to add function to an area focused on entertainment. Adding a full-service bar in the back of the theater can also create extra seating for guests.
