To The Bar!
Everyone out of the kitchen and head to the bar! Who would love to have an alternate location for appetizers and drinks during family gatherings, game nights, and holidays? Bars can relieve your packed kitchen and create a cozy atmosphere for guests to relax, snack, drink, and enjoy community. Living rooms, dining rooms, and basements are great locations to incorporate a bar. A simple upgrade could be cabinetry and countertops for beverage storage and appetizer buffet use. The most common and functional bar areas include a sink and beverage fridge. Or, choose to go all out in adding a full fridge, warming drawer, sink and dishwasher! Bars also give the opportunity to incorporate those design elements you see on HGTV, but are too out of your comfort zone to use in a whole kitchen remodel. Colored cabinets, patterned tile, specialty stone, and extravagant countertops often grab the attention of clients and their guest alike!
