This house has great character! Lots of moldings, charm and room. It needs granite, new appliances, master bath re-do, relocation of the laundry room, a new bathroom for Mariner (as in, there currently isn't one for him yet, if we buy the place), wallpaper removed, a deck and...something done with the wet bar!
When I think of a wet bar, I think of the 70s and 80s! Dark basements with foosball and pool tables. Nasty bar stools covered in vinyl and orange shag carpet! Don't you? Initially we were thinking we would rip it out, then we thought, we would keep it and here's why; where does everyone end up during a party? The kitchen, right? If there's a wet bar, more than likely your party would stay in the living room. More and more people are choosing to renovate their wet bars or install one in their entertainment spaces. The more we thought about it, the more it made sense. IF the sellers could come down in price enough to justify the purchase, we might take the plunge. For now, we are dreaming of possibilities.
I love how sleek and modern this one is. Way more sophisticated than it's predecessors.
Something just a little more classic and traditional. This one doesn't scream "PARTY" but I think that's what I like about it. It can be an everyday beverage break, sort of space or a little wine tasting location for a gathering.
I love this one! The rock backsplash is wonderful!
Today's wet bars are close in proximity to entertainment spaces and usually just around the corner from the kitchen. It saves congestion when your friends are enjoying the game and need a drink; and you are preparing food for the party in the kitchen.
With the Super Bowl, this weekend, who wouldn't want one of these right there in the room with you, your friends and the big game?
