It’s here folks! This week I’m finally unveiling our big kitchen remodel! I’ve already shared the other areas we did as part of the kitchen remodel including the mudroom and powder room, and today I’m sharing our wet bar.
You may recall that mid-way through the remodel and design process we reconfigured the area off of the kitchen, which prior to the remodel included a coat closet, the powder room, pantry and an office nook. We moved walls and changed the footprint but something wasn’t feeling quite right. Then it dawned on me to carve out a little nook for a wet bar/coffee bar. I loved the idea of having a designated area for our bar stuff and to reduce the foot traffic in the kitchen when entertaining. I pulled some inspiration and developed a design plan for the wet bar, which I laid out in this post.
Here’s a look back at the area during construction.

Finally, here’s what our wet bar/coffee bar looks like now.
The wet bar is small but mighty. It’s about 58″ wide and has a mini fridge, a sink with a faucet and hot water dispenser, drawers that house coffee and tea accouterments, bar accessories and 15-20 liquor bottles. The upper wall cabinets store glassware and the open shelves leave room to display some things such as our vintage decanters. I’ll share a look inside the cabinets in a future post.
The wet bar gets SO much use and I’m so glad we made the decision to work it into the design of our kitchen. We use the hot water dispenser every day and love having an extra fridge for beer, soda and overflow.
Although I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, I do think I’m going to add a tile backsplash. I am mulling over some samples so stay tuned for that update later on.
