Sunburst Wall Mirror

The perfect decor item to hang above that retro bar cart? This sunny wall mirror. It'll give your space a classy California-cool vibe that's both old-school and totally modern. We'd make it a funky part of a gallery wall, but it's also large enough to shine on its own. Either way, it'll perfectly frame your home bar to make the space feel fresh and fun.

Decanter with Stopper

Add this decanter to your bar cart decor—because sometimes the bottle isn't cute enough to display on its own. If that's the case, try pouring the drink into this round decanter, topped with an Art Deco-style brass stopper. Not only does it look cool sitting atop your home bar, but it'll also keep your chosen libation fresh until the next time you crack it open.

Wine Shelves

In case a bar cart just isn't enough, expand your space with the help of a few shelves built specifically for home bars. Each shelf in this set of two is about as wide as a wine bottle, and they even feature hooks along the bottom to hang wine glasses (just like in a trendy bar or restaurant). Not only are they totally functional, but they'll add a rustic and charming feel to your space.

Upholstered Bar Stools

Slide up to the bar and get comfortable—this is your own home, after all. These chairs give a luxurious experience (can't you just picture sipping whiskey on the rocks while lounging here?) with stylish, riveted beige upholstery that will complement any décor style. And since the chairs feature 360-degree swivel, you can always see what's happening throughout the party.

Wine Cooler

Sometimes you have a few too many bottles of wine and not enough room in the fridge to keep them all chilled (we don't judge, we've been there). Stock your bar with this essential wine cooler, which is calibrated to keep up to 12 bottles stored at the perfect temperature, with no annoying clinking noises every time you open the door. A touchscreen display means you can adjust the temperature and light display to your liking. The coolest (pun intended) part? It's compact and attractive enough to be stored on your countertop, so your favorite wines aren't relegated to spots near the floor.

Three-Piece Shaker Set

What's an at-home bar without a good shaker set? This version features a shaker, strainer, and measuring glass complete with recipes printed on the sides, so you can make classic cocktails at home (sans bartender). The measuring glass even has a rubber rim along the top, so you never lose a drop of your precious drink while learning how to shake and stir.

Ice Bucket

Ice buckets are one of the most essential—yet least thought-of—tools of the home bar. They keep bottles chilled, ice fresh, and make for easy transportation of your drinks from the bar to the table. This version is made of transparent glass, so it'll add a minimalist look to your bar while letting you show off your best bottles.
