As seen on HGTV's hit show Elbow Room, Chip and his team of designers created an attic home gym for the Perez family who felt they missed out on time with each other while they all were exercising. This room will bring the whole family together with something for everyone. To keep the family cool, Chip and his team installed a giant fan. They also installed this beverage cart to keep the gym rats hydrated as they exercise.
A tall cabinet cleverly hides a deluxe coffee and tea station, including an espresso machine with plumbing (no need to venture away for water). And there's also additional storage for countertop appliances and bulkier kitchen items like colanders.
A beverage storage area is a brilliant use of space in this transitional kitchen. Glass upper cabinets showcase stemware while a built-in wine rack is a functional and beautiful way to store bottles. Side-by-side fridges allow ample space to keep any drink of choice chilled and at the ready.
Setting up food and drink stations allows guests to serve themselves, reducing your workload as a host. Portable foldout tables set against the wall and covered with fabric look elegant and are sturdy enough to hold the weight of glass containers food and beverages. For the beverage station, provide a bottle of your favorite sparkling wine along with pitchers of juice for mixing.
No matter how small your outdoor space, make it pop with table linens and fresh flowers in look-at-me shades. Set up a beverage station so guests can help themselves, and add cushions or pillows to chairs -- comfortable furniture will entice guests to sit a spell.
Designate a food and beverage station using foldout tables covered in basic linen tablecloths to keep the main table clutter-free and allow guests to move about the picnic area. Old rugs also function well as table covers. Style with feathery wreaths, reclaimed wood pieces, favors and fresh flowers.
While a sleek bar cart is nice eye candy, you don't need one to create a functional and stylish serving area for guests to prep a cocktail. Any space can be transformed into a makeshift beverage station. All you really need is some barware, a cutting board and a few holiday decorations.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, Sarah installed beverage stations for all ages in this basement rec room. A chic, antique wine cabinet provides easy storage for the family's wine collection while a kitchenette on the other side of the room holds ready-to-grab drinks and snacks for the family's two young boys.
Designating a beverage station is a great way to keep the buffet table less crowded and carry the theme to other areas. To continue the party subtle menswear theme, search your favorite vintage store for a Mad Men-era decanter and vintage ice bucket. Be sure to stock the bar with plenty of cocktail napkins, ice and garnishes.
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.
