A small brown cabinet is used for wine glass storage in this eclectic home. Behind the cabinet, gray patterned wallpaper creates movement, and on top of the cabinet, striped candlesticks and a rhino figurine add trendy decoration.
This dining room's bar area is in a New York state of mind. The floating cabinet holds wine lying horizontally and liquor bottles behind mesh-front cabinets. Wine glasses hang from a shelf overhead, where New York City prints also rest — but could hold cookbooks, a decanter or other accessories. Succulents and flowers bring life to the space.
Even the tiniest wet bar will be a boon for entertaining if you choose the right spot for it. “It makes sense to fit the bar near the traffic pattern of the party,” says Gretchen Brown, who created this diminutive 3 ½-foot-wide by 2-foot-deep drinks station using custom cabinetry painted in Benjamin Moore’s Snowfall White.
A large wine room houses a restaurant-worthy wine collection in this stylish, modern dining room. An abstract-patterned black and white rug cushions a gorgeous white marble dining table surrounded by black mesh chairs. Black pendant lights complete the decor and join the recessed lighting in illuminating the space.
Storage isn't always about keeping things out of sight. This custom glass wine cabinet with refrigeration allows wine to be stored properly and tastefully while always being able to view what is on hand.
An added touch just steps from the kitchen is this custom dry bar with wine rack. The cappuccino stained alder cabinets with frosted glass inserts and stone and glass linear backsplash complete the look.
This clever space combines a game room with a wine cellar: The wine sits behind a glass wall, becoming a handsome visual display as well as a storage space. The game room features a foosball table and fun vintage soda machines.
Brown cabinetry with recessed panel and glass-front doors are shown in this design by Christine Donner. Wine storage is cozily tucked into the bottom corner, and a mirror adds the illusion of more depth and light. Under-cabinet lighting gives the space a warm, inviting feel, just right for entertaining.
The basement bar uses space that would otherwise be empty square footage. A custom bar aligns with the stair treads and is the same wood and finish as the steps. A dark charcoal wall is a complementary accent to the light gray paint. Glass subway tile adds a simple pattern to the space and open shelving keeps bottles organized and accessible.
In a corner of the dining room, a wet bar provides ample storage for dishes and serverware and also includes a built-in wine cooler and sink to make guests the perfect cocktail in one convenient place.
A clean and organized dry bar is a great option for a small nook. Here, a wine refrigerator and cabinet create the base of the bar. Above, built-in shelving and glass-front cabinets provide wine bottle and glass storage.
