In my dreamworld my future apartment would have plenty of closet/storage space and that one random alcove to deal with. In that one random alcove (that's strategically located between the family room and kitchen because I'm just that lucky. I mean this is my dreamworld) a built in wet bar would be so lovely. It would make my apartment perfect for those book club meetings, dinner parties, or that end of day
Technically this isn't a "wet bar", its just a bar. But even with no sink, wine fridge or dishwasher drawer this bar is still perfect. Well, the Mariah Carey butterfly light fixture would have to go. Then it's perfect.
A built-in bar like this would be amazing to have, if only I had this set up in my current apartment.
Ok this one isn't an alcove- but it's great use of the wall space between the two doors. It might otherwise be junk counter space if it was not something useful like this wet bar area.
Yet another Bailey creation that I'm smitten over.
The dark cabinets and brass hardware had me at hello. This would be so lovely in a small apartment because it's simple yet functional.
Pretty wood counters- but I'd switch out those door panels on the bottom, I'm not feeling those.
I'd switch out the crystal hardware, but other than that I love this bar. Do you see that fab nailhead detail along the wall?
And lastly, my favorite
Miles Redd. He can do no wrong in my eyes. This bar combines my love of painted woodwork AND drinking. It's a marriage made in heaven.
Now to find the perfect apartment with an alcove between the kitchen and family room for my bar (and also a 2 car garage, washer and dryer, massive walk in closets, designer kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and a zoo with an elephant and a giraffe on my roof deck that has a pool).
I should probably start wishing on all the stars in the sky right now.
