When putting in a residential bar in your home the design of the layout should fit the room. Here are the different ways you can place your bar in a room. You can see how a bar with a return, or a straight bar can work off the corner on the same wall. Also if you can, have the bar design so that you don't always see behind the bar when you see it in the room, but you see the front. So the way you enter the bar is important in your design.
