Wet bars are now being seen in living rooms and are being built with much more sophistication. Single-wall wet bars are a great way to put walls with views to work. You won’t have upper cabinets to deal with.  All your bottles and glasses can be stored can be kept below.  This allows you to have more counter space and maybe even add a sink.

Floor to Ceiling Wet Bars

Pass through wet bars are bars that have a cut out through the wall allowing you to see into the other room. This is a great way to make drinks and still be engaged with your guests while they wait in the other room.

Wet Bar with Wine Cubbies

Are you a wine connoisseur and maybe these types of wet bars aren’t appealing to you or your wine collection?  Fear not, wet bars have not forgotten about you.  Cabinetry has gotten better over the years by thinking of ways to make the everyday homeowners life easier.  Then they came up with wine storage.  Instead of having upper cabinets, get wine cubbies.  This is a great way to display and show off your wine collection.

L Shaped Wet Bar

If you have a lot of dead space in your home and you want to fill it with something interesting, try an L-Shaped wet bar.  This layout lets you have more room to prep, perfect for holiday parties or small get togethers.  Add glass cabinets or wine racks for your uppers, include a sink or wine fridge below. The most deck out wet bar has the most potential when there is room to play with.
