Inside: Coolest bar shelf ideas for your home so you don’t ever have to leave.
I have quite a steady collection of nice liquors at my house, which has got me thinking: Where do I store all of these drinks when I am not having them? Of course, I could just put them in a cabinet, but they are too cool for that!
So that lead me down a rabbit hole for a few hours, I searched up at-home bar carts and booze displays… I wasn’t settled on any of these ideas until I stumbled across a bar shelf.
A bar shelf is essentially a shelf that is only for your booze. It’s simple, out of the way, and looks really nice in your home. I was sold!
So I then started looking for inspiration, and I found so much! I wanted to share those ideas with you today; that way, they don’t go to waste. Check out the list below to see which bar shelf ideas are the ones for you.

Bar Shelf Ideas
For this first list, I am going to walk you through each example and tell you one or two nice things about the example. It was so hard for me to choose in the end, but I did. I cannot way for my new shelves to get here! Check out this list below to get started. Who knows, maybe you will find your bar shelf and order it today! You never know.
1. Modern Bar with Rustic Shelves – I love rustic shelves because they look like you could have made them yourself. You know, if you were super skilled in that sort of thing. Check out this awesome set.
2. 3 Simple Marble Bar Shelves – I like the idea of having 3 different floating shelves to work with. That is why I like this idea so much. Not only are there 3, but they’re MARBLE! I think this just looks super chic.
3. Adorable Arch Accent Wall Bar – If you want your bar shelf to feel fancier, why not focus on the wall behind it? This person painted one of those adorable arches behind their bar shelf. It looked too cute not to include.
4. Bar Shelves with Protective Bar – The amount of people who just have their booze on a shelf without any extra support is wild to me. I would be so nervous that I would just a door too hard and a bottle would go flying off. That’s why I like this idea so much.
5. Unique Shelves Centered Around Sign – I love the way that this sign is the focal point for the shelves. They all curve around it. Cool, right?
6. Wall Of Booze Shelves – This household must really like its drinks! Or on the contrary, they must not like it all that much if they never ever finish a bottle. Jokes aside, if you were looking to go hardcore with this project, I think you should do it.
7. Mini Bar Shelf with Hanging Glasses – I love it when these little bar corners have slots in the bottom of the shelves for hanging your glasses.
8. Simple Floating Shelves Idea – You don’t have to get crazy like some of these to have a cute bar shelf. You can literally just use a floating shelf that is designated for your booze.
9. Cute Bar Nook Idea – I love the look of any nook. I recently created a reading nook in my house, perhaps it’s time for a bar nook next!
10. Large Industrial Style Bar Shelves – Here we go again with the industrial style. I don’t know what else to call it, it really is very industrial looking. The popes are exposed, and the wood is rustic. I am for it.
11. Cute Gold/Wood Shelves – I am obsessed with these. I just love gold in general, though. Take a look and see if you think these are as cute as I do. Maybe I need a Bar shelf?
12. Small Industrial Shelving – If you don’t plan on having more than a few bottles in your home at once, then I think you should check out this idea.
13. Epic Floating Shelves with Tile – I think what makes these shelves even cooler is the fact that they are screwed into the tile. How the heck did that happen? This seems pretty cool to me.
