Lounge bar design should be inviting—you want to maximize your guests’ comfort so that they want to stay and enjoy your venue. Choose relaxed decorating styles to create a welcoming atmosphere. Select a theme for a lounge bar and carry it throughout the bar, from the wall color to the furniture and accessories.
Modern Lounge Bar
Turn spaces into a trendy, modern lounge bar. White furniture—sofas, lounge chairs and bar stools—create a comfortable, modern atmosphere. Consider white booths to maximize guests’ comfort. Limit the number of colors used—a modern design should be sleek and clean. Wooden floors and walls are a nice contrast against the white furniture. Incorporate geometric designs on the bar—perhaps in the tile—or as wall art. Add a modest pop of color by using uplights on the walls—choose from a variety of colors, from turquoise to pink or green.
Music-inspired Lounge Bar
If the lounge provides live music, then carry this music theme throughout the design of the venue. A classic black and white look works well for a music-inspired lounge bar. Create seating areas with a mix of furniture—from sofas and loveseats to high-top tables and chairs. Use music-themed art throughout the lounge bar. Add framed records or images of classic music acts such as the Beatles, Eagles or the Who to the walls. Choose artists that align with the live music at your lounge. Hang such instruments as guitars on the walls. For an added touch, play music that matches the theme, which creates a welcoming environment for fans of that music genre.
Moroccan Lounge Bar
Bring a taste of the Middle East to your lounge bar. Moroccan-inspired designs embrace rich colors and fabrics and ornate accessories. Deep reds, oranges and purples work well for the walls—consider painting different sections of your lounge in different colors for some contrast. Use fabrics in the same colors or gold as curtains, or drape this fabric from the ceiling. Include throw pillows on sofas—or use large pillows as the furniture themselves. Find ornate gold accessories to display on tables and on the walls. Wooden tables and chairs work well for the Moroccan design as well.
