In the hallway and foyer, a few carefully chosen pieces decorate the space, but keeping items minimal helps maintain an uncluttered, airy feel. The black bannister visually bisects the area with a long, curving line.
“Designed for wine lovers who enjoy entertaining often, this wet bar was installed in the dining room where they host dinner parties, holiday meals and entertain most of the time,” says designer Nathan J. Reynolds. “Next to the kitchen, it’s a convenient place for additional counter space for mixing drinks, plating desserts, or serving coffee and after-dinner drinks.” The design includes a Kohler sink, Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer drawers, and a Sub-Zero wine refrigerator. “Glass cabinets above the wet bar distinguish it from the rest of the workspace and showcase handsome glassware and collectibles,” he adds.
A large floating staircase helps to break up this open-plan entryway and keeps the space from feeling cavernous with such high ceilings. Light wood railings blend with the hardwood floor and neutral walls to create a cohesive, uninterrupted design.
Craftsman Wet Bar With Frosted Glass Upper Cabinets
The beautiful, natural and neutral design of this Craftsman wet bar is organized and appealing. Frosted glass upper cabinets allow for easy glass storage, and a built-in cubby makes wine storage simple and accessible. The natural stone backsplash creates textural contrast against the polished black marble countertop.
This vestibule combines warm finishes with rich textiles and artwork to create an intimate space. The custom-designed double doors pocket carefully into back-lit niches and offer a dramatic entrance to the art studio, which sits at the back of the house like a hidden gem.
To create the look and feel of an entryway although the home is completely lacking in one, a properly scaled console table was placed just inside the door to hold keys, mail and wallets. The space above is used to hold jackets, scarves and bags while the space below houses baskets for shoes, boots and pet supplies.
