You don’t have to go out for happy hour.  If you love to entertain friends consider installing a bar into your own home. Even those that don’t like to drink can have fun with a built in bar.  You can use it as an area to store cold drinks and serve appetizers.

You don’t need a large room to install a state of the art entertaining area.  All you need is some wall space.  We can easily install a customized bar into your living room, family room, basement or even outside.

Here are some things to include in your customized, built in, bar and entertainment area:

  • Cupboards.  Install several built in cupboards for storing glasses of various sizes, serving platters, and appetizer plates.  This can also free up cupboard space in your kitchen by moving nice crystal and wine glasses out of that space.
  • Refrigerator.  A built in refrigerator is essential for any bar and entertainment area.  Discuss with your contractor the type of entertaining that you like to do.  Your fridge must be large enough to accommodate the appetizers you like to serve and your entertainment style will dictate whether a full size fridge is necessary.
  • Wine Fridge.  Keep your white and sparkling wine at the perfect serving temperature by installing a built in wine fridge.
  • Wine Storage.  Display your wine bottles by installing open wine shelving similar to a restaurant.  Slide bottles in and grab them quickly for tasting parties.
  • Sink.  Adding a sink to your bar area is ideal for people that like to make quick appetizers on the spot.
  • Dishwasher.  No one likes to do the dishes.  Installing a dishwasher lets you clean glasses and appetizer plates immediately, rather than waiting and transporting them into the main kitchen for cleanup.
  • Beer on Tap.  Nothing makes guests feel like they are at the bar like cold beer on tap.  We can install a place for kegs of your favorite beer in your home bar.
  • Seating.  If you have a larger area, like a basement or corner of the family room, install bar seating for guests to comfortably hang out.

A built in bar and entertaining area can take your home parties to a new level.  Even casual Friday night hang outs can be more fun.  If you love to have friends and family over give us a call to see how we can turn your home into an entertainer’s paradise.
