Picking The Right Wet Bar For Your Northern Virginia Home

February 09, 2018

A wet bar is a great way to create an entertaining space that fits in cohesively with the design of your home. By having a designated space for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, there will be less clutter in the vital cabinet space of your kitchen and a inviting place for guests to congregate.

3. Contemporary

This style is highlighted by it's accent pieces. The glass backsplash and clear shelving bring back the same look that was common in wet bars from the 60's, while still maintaining an appeal that feels current with the times. Gold serving utensils and drink stirrers are also a must have.

6. Transitional

Transitional is a broad term that can include design aspects on multiple levels. A shaker style cabinet is complimented by an iridescent backsplash that may otherwise be considered modern if paired with a different type of cabinet.

This style is highlighted by clean lines and not a ton of color. The clean lines and sleek appliances do most of the talking. Chrome hardware, Corian countertops and a beveled backsplash finish the look.
