Most often seen in basements, wet bars provide a complimentary space to a room that allows for fun relaxation and entertaining away from the kitchen. People are drawn to where the food and drinks are, and installing a wet bar gives people a place to gather that isn’t the kitchen. Game nights are so much more enjoyable when you don’t have to tread all the way to the kitchen to rinse out a glass and fetch some snacks since a wet bar makes entertaining simple.
As the name suggests, the only real difference between a wet bar and a dry bar is that a wet bar has a sink and requires plumbing. A wet bar remodel will provide a counter area with running water and a sink so that you can serve drinks and have gatherings in areas of your home aside from your kitchen. While you most commonly see wet bars in basements, they can be installed throughout your house, even on a deck or a patio for a truly luxurious feel.
Many people will choose a dry bar instead of a wet bar because they don’t want to deal with the plumbing, and just want a place to pour drinks – alcoholic or not. Wet bars give you both a place to pour said drinks and to clean them off, making wet bars the more convenient choice. Plus, since wet bars have sinks, this saves you space in your kitchen, because you can just take care of dishes right there, rather than needing to trudge across the house to pile them up in your kitchen sink.
Wet bars aren’t a one and done, you want one, you got one. When you’re designing a wet bar remodel, you’ll want to take into consideration how it’s going to be used. Whether or not it is a strictly adult space or one that is kid-friendly will impact the design, as you’ll want to ensure any alcohol is secured away from little hands. Some parents love to install wet bars so that their kids can have a place to hang out with their friends with snacks and drinks and all that isn’t right by the adults. Other people prefer their wet bars to be cozier, while others want them more high-tone.
Generally, a wet bar has a counter, a sink, storage space either above and/or below. You can also have a microwave built into your wet bar, a wine cooler, or a mini-fridge to keep drinks cool.
