The Home Bar: A Place to Relax and Entertain

Your home bar is a special place. It's where you go to unwind after a long day. It's also a great spot to entertain friends and family.

To make your home bar feel truly special, it's important to create the right ambiance. The right curtains can help you do just that.

Benefits of Using Curtains For Bars

Curtains offer many benefits for your home bar:

  • They create a cozy and inviting atmosphere

  • They provide privacy when you need it

  • They help control light and glare

  • They enhance the overall look of your bar

In my years of experience at, I've helped countless customers discover not just the functional advantages of choosing the perfect curtains, but also the intangible ways they enhance the joy of entertaining at home.

Creating Ambiance and Atmosphere

Enhancing Home Bar Ambiance with Curtains

The right curtains can instantly make your home indoor bar feel more sophisticated and inviting. Rich fabrics like velvet or faux silk add a touch of luxury. Deep jewel tones like burgundy or emerald green create a warm and cozy vibe.

Some great curtain options for a luxurious look:

Providing Privacy

Sometimes you want your home bar to feel like a private oasis. Curtains can help provide that privacy.

They can block the view from outside and make your bar feel like a secluded hideaway.

Controlling Light and Glare

Curtains also help you control the light in your home bar. If you have a TV in your bar area, curtains can help reduce glare on the screen.

Room-darkening or blackout curtains are great for creating a cozy, intimate atmosphere.

Enhancing Overall Bar Aesthetic

Finally, curtains simply make your home bar look better. They add color, texture, and style to the space. They can tie together your whole bar design.

Choosing Curtains & Drapes Based on Your Home Bar Style

Classic Home Bar Velvet Curtains

The style of your home bar will dictate the type of curtains you choose. Here are some guidelines based on popular home bar styles:

Classic/Traditional Home Bar

For a classic or traditional look, opt for rich fabrics like velvet or faux silk. Choose deep jewel tones like burgundy or emerald green. For a more neutral look, try black, brown, or cream.

Room-darkening or blackout curtains can help create a cozy, intimate vibe.

Modern Home Bar

In a modern home bar, lighter fabrics like linen or cotton work well. Stick to monochromatic tones like black, white, and gray.

You can also add pops of color for an accent.

Sheer or light-filtering curtains create a more open, airy feel.

Rustic Home Bar

For a rustic bar, choose natural fabrics like burlap or jute. Earthy tones like brown, beige, and green fit the rustic vibe.

Light-filtering or sheer curtains showcase the natural view outside.

Additional Considerations

When choosing curtains for your home bar, also keep these factors in mind:

Length and Width

For a luxurious look, aim for curtains that puddle slightly on the floor. Make sure to measure the width of your window and multiply by 2-3 times. This will ensure your curtains have a nice, full look.

Curtain Type Recommended Length Recommended Width
Desktop Window 1/2 inch above the sill 2 to 3 times the window width
Full-Length 1/2 inch above the floor 2 to 3 times the window width
Puddled 1 to 3 inches on the floor 2 to 3 times the window width

 At Dolcewe, all curtains are available in custom size. You can custom curtain width, length and fullness to fit your needs, starting at $26.99.


Don't forget about curtain rods! Choose rods that complement your bar's style. Wrought iron works well in a traditional bar, while chrome fits a modern aesthetic.

  • Metal rods with geometric finials for contemporary bars
  • Wooden rods with intricate designs for a more classic, rustic feel
  • Adjustable rods for versatile window sizing
  • Motorized hardware for easy operation of heavy drapes

At Dolcewe, our drapes are available in grommet, ring top, pinch pleats to fit various rods. 

Ease of Cleaning

Look for curtains that are easy to clean and maintain. Because your home bar is an entertaining space, spills are bound to happen from time to time.

  1. Look for curtains made from machine-washable fabrics like polyester, cotton, or nylon blends. These can be easily tossed in the washing machine on a gentle cycle with cold water when they get dirty.
  2. Opt for curtains with a stain-resistant or water-repellent coating. These treatments help liquids bead up and roll off the fabric rather than soaking in, making stains easier to wipe away.
  3. Choose darker colored curtains for your home bar. Darker shades are better at hiding stains between cleanings compared to light colors.
  4. Avoid delicate fabrics like silk or linen which require special cleaning. Stick to durable, washable materials that can handle frequent laundering.
  5. For quick spot cleaning, keep a spray bottle with a mixture of mild dish soap and water handy. Blot stains immediately with a clean cloth to prevent them from setting in.
  6. Vacuum or dust the curtains weekly using the upholstery attachment to remove dirt and debris before it gets ground in. This keeps curtains looking fresher longer between deeper cleanings.
  7. Consider using a fabric protector spray on the curtains to create an invisible shield that repels spills and stains. Reapply the protector every few months or after washing the curtains.

Measuring and Installation

To get a great fit, measure your windows carefully before ordering curtains. Decide if you want rod pocket or grommet top curtains. Rod pockets create a gathered look, while grommets have a more modern feel.

Don't forget to pick up curtain rods, rings, and tiebacks to complete the look.
