… To Elevate Your Home to an all new level
A well-placed wet bar can elevate any space in your home. Whether it’s a basement, bedroom, or kitchen, there are numerous different ways to transform a space just by adding a wet bar. Have a man cave in the basement? A dark, rustic wet bar might be just what it needs. Have a bright, white kitchen? A light, simplistic wet bar may just do the job, or dark cabinetry to contrast. Want it to stand out? Flashy hardware and a colorful backsplash behind the wet bar will look amazing!
Wherever your home wet bar is, there are many ways to enhance it’s visual and functional appeal. Let’s check out some ideas to make your wet bar the social center of your home.
Basement Wet Bar
Many basements are referred to as a “man cave”, which usually entails a darker, more rustic design. Add some spice to the basement with a wet bar that will do the job and look great too!
For example, a wet bar that includes lots of seating room and plenty of counter space, beautiful cabinets, and hardware that brightens the cabinets without taking away from the feel.
If this look is too dark for you, a simple rug in front of the wet bar to contrast with the floors will quickly brighten up the space. These cabinets are perfect for achieving a warm feel and are sure to ‘wow’ any guests!
Dramatic Wet Bar
Looking for a wet bar that immediately catches everyone’s eye? A sleek cabinet mixed with gold or silver hardware might be the right look for you!
This wet bar creates some visual drama. It’s eye-catching, but in a simple way.
The dark tone of the cabinets is contrasted by silver hardware, and a beautiful grey countertop. Not only is this wet bar a functional space, it’s a work of art! This space would be a perfect contrast to a bright white kitchen. It’s the perfect mix between dark and light.
This dramatic wet bar idea would also work with lighter cabinets, such as light grey cabinetry, or even a dark espresso shaker cabinet.
Simple Wet Bar
Have an area in a room that serves no purpose? An awkward nook or tight space that you can’t seem to figure out what to place there? Try a wet bar! A wet bar can elevate a space while also serving a functional purpose.
Look at this simple, oak wet bar. This wet bar adds more style and functionality to the room.
This type of wet bar is perfect for those awkward spaces you can’t seem to fill. With simple oak shaker cabinets and traditional hardware it effortlessly continues the bright and clean theme of the room. The glass and oak upper cabinets are also a nice design touch, as they allow you to display any decorative dishware or bottles.
With a simple wet bar, you are adding functionality and style to a room without breaking the wallet, as well as potentially filling a space that was awkward prior to adding the bar.
Modern Farmhouse Wet Bar
Lots of white, lots of shiplap. If modern farmhouse is your go-to style, this type of wet bar is perfect for you! The farmhouse feel doesn’t have to be rustic; it can be clean, bright, and sleek while still following suit with the farmhouse-look.
This beautiful wet bar executes the modern farmhouse style perfectly. The shiplap brings the farmhouse feel, while the tones of the countertop, flooring and open shelving warms up the stark white of their surroundings.
This look can be easily achieved with a simple white cabinet, dark hardware, shiplap, and countertops that resemble concrete. Shiplap is a fantastic and simple way to elevate a wet bar’s look without making it look too busy. Even with the shiplap, a beautifully patterned backsplash would be a great way to also elevate this wet bar while also potentially adding more color. This farmhouse style wet bar is the perfect addition to any modern farmhouse!
Moody Wet Bar
Looking for something a bit more dramatic? Try going for a moodier style with darker tones and an eye-catching backsplash.
This wet bar would have a dark, alluring feel. The dark cabinetry mixed with dark hardware and a reflective backsplash are contrasted with a lighter wood countertop and natural wood shelving. This contrast of dark and light gives off a ‘moody’ feeling, which is accentuated by backlit shelving.
A moody wet bar can be achieved with any color of dark cabinetry. Dark navy blue, dark green, or black cabinets are all great options when paired with some dark hardware. A lighter countertop and shelving helps break up this darkness and give the wet bar more of a warm feeling. Also note how the backlighting can illuminate any bottles or glasses, creating an almost showcase-like effect. This light not only bounces off the glasses, but also the reflective backsplash, which gives the wet bar more texture and dimension.
