Does your dream home include a wine cellar, a basement bar, a cocktail cart, or another form of libation station? Whether you’re a home office gin and tonic type or a margarita maven in the kitchen, there are multiple ways to incorporate a libation station into your home organization. Here are a few of our favorites.
The Built-in Kitchen Pantry Bar: When you’re hosting friends and family, there’s no room for drink mixing on the kitchen counters — they’re already covered in platters of food and hors d’oeuvres! Blending and shaking drinks can be tricky business, too. For a truly party-ready kitchen pantry, why not add a built-in bar? An extra countertop space with built-in lighting and storage underneath is ideal for making drinks out of the way, so the party can go on outside.
The Hidden Away Wine and Cheese-Tasting Station: While an extra countertop certainly adds a useful libation station, if you’ve got the room, a butler’s pantry can become its own corner of the party. This wine and cheese-tasting room features open storage for beautiful and easy-to-access drink displays, as well as plenty of counter space for food prep and serving.
The Reach-In Libation Station: Making the most of a reach-in closet can require lots of design expertise. If your downtown Wilmington home has lots of closets but little space, why not put a hideaway libation station in your reach-in? Open shelving can display go-to beverages and glasses, while cabinetry can store extra supplies and a roll-out selection of your finest wine. Surely you’ll be the talk of the town when you reveal your gorgeous reach-in.
The Ultimate Entertainment Center: The best home organization puts what you need right where you want it. For a relaxing drink at the end of the day, build your drink station right into the entertainment center. With hideaway storage, you can snag the drink you want and then fold the bar away. Super Bowl season will never be the same!
The Aficionado’s Liquor Library: Of course, you may not want to hide away your beverage collection. For a truly personalized man cave, consider adding custom shelving for a liquor library or traditional wine cellar with rich, dark woods.
