A Toast to Home Bars & Wine Closets

Being able to gather with friends and family in an inviting space is one of the most popular reasons for considering a whole home remodel. And, if you love to entertain, a home bar or wine closet brings extra sparkle to any occasion. Being a wine connoisseur or cocktail expert is not a requirement; often people want a home bar to serve soft drinks and water. The unifying goal is designing a welcoming focal point for gathering together for refreshment and conversation. We’ve gathered some of the home bars and wine closets in our home remodels here for inspiration:

Backlit Beauty
Don’t overlook the importance of lighting in setting a mood for home entertaining. In this mountain top retreat, a backlit onyx slab adds dramatic allure to the bar. In the wine closet, lighting from the bottom emphasizes the design with an artistic approach that becomes a conversation piece.

Coastal Sparkle
In the inviting kitchen of a stunning coastal home, the extra large wine closet was custom designed for clients who appreciate wine and champagne. Cabinetry with molding details is balanced with the texture of the backsplash to create a white on white design with warmth and depth.

Dining Room Double
Designed to accommodate large festive dinner parties and family gatherings, this bar in the modern dining room of a colorful family home integrates two wine refrigerators and stylish open shelving. Natural wood adds a warm character to the space. Open to a pretty backyard, the dining room bar is perfectly situated for indoor and outdoor entertaining. 

A home bar can be integrated with a living space, a kitchen, a dining room, or even an outdoor living space. Planning the details of scale, colors, textures, and materials to create a space that feels authentic to you is an inspiring aspect of the design build process. You’ll discover the right approach for your whole home remodel or new home with the guidance of an expert team of architects, designers, and construction professionals.
