Entertain guests in style with this snazzy bar setup. Two leather armchairs offer seating for guests to sip on their cocktails, and a white buffet provides storage and a place to set your drink. Three wall-mounted shelves display glassware and decanters.
What's the perfect vehicle for winter entertaining? A bar cart of course! This affordable, glamorous piece of furniture takes your party to where ever you need it in your living room, dining room or even bedroom.
Bar carts are one of the most versatile pieces you can add to your home. Of all items in this dining space, the bar cart is the one that remains for all three purposes. Here it's outfitted as a drink station and a designated spot for keeping fresh towels within arm's reach as well as bottled water and open storage.
Let guests be part of the process by placing an espresso and cappuccino machine on the beverage station. Guests get to learn something new and can make drinks suited to their individual tastes. The milk-frothing function in the machine makes delicious cappuccinos, lattes and hot chocolate. Add popular garnishes such as marshmallows, flavored syrups and cinnamon sticks to the display.
A stylish wet bar off the formal living room provides relaxed access while entertaining and feels more like a built-in component than a typical bar. Using a tufted bar bench instead of stools adds to the feeling of unassuming complexity and sophistication.
Dark wood cabinets and bar add an air of luxury in this traditional bar. A silver mantel and a black and white, checked tile floor are stylized touches that create a traditional feel for the bar area while the stainless steel backsplash adds a modern flair.
Try a bar cart. Wine bottles cluttering up your countertop? Turn them into a feature by adding a bar cart if you have an unused space. Look for compact designs, and consider using the bottom part of the cart to store something different.
