Before and After Home Bar + 5 Bar Design Tips
I am slightly addicted to how extreme before and afters can get, aren’t you? When I meet with a new client and their home is really ugly but I see the potential I start to salivate because I know we are in for some fun.
This client has a home in a location they LOVE, but they did not like the interior. To put it mildly, the kitchen and bar spaces were poorly designed. Not nearly enough storage, wacky layout and cheap cabinets really were a downer! You would not BELIEVE how much storage and light we gained in the bar area alone! Above is one side of the new pass through bar.
A right-sized refrigerator and a tray on the counter helps keep everything organized. This was a total gut and redo, with light gray flat panel cabinets.
On the other side is the on-hand wine storage and counter space for flowers, sculpture or a drink making station during parties.
Below are the before images, a lot of space but not enough storage!
The opposite wall had no cabinetry, such wasted space!
Here are 5 tips to help you design the perfect bar!
Have fun entertaining and remember to keep it fun with touches of YOUR personal style!
