Wine Racks & StorageOne aspect of wine appreciation is the sheer beauty of the bottles — with the right wine racks you can make your wine collection a meaningful part of your décor.

Whether you seek an elegant wood cabinet, an expandable bar cabinet, a wine bottle carousel, stemware rack, wrought iron wine jail, wine rack kit, wine table or wine entertainment cart, our selection of wine bars is certain to please.

Wine rack:  Not all units include a wine rack.  Therefore, if you wish to store wine, restrict your search to models that include a wine rack.

Using built-in cabinets or large furniture can make your bar look more distinguished and showcase your liquor, drinkware and other bar accessories. Built-in cabinets are the most expensive option, but they also give your bar the most stately, permanent look. If built-in is too big of a task, using a buffet table, cabinet or bookshelf is another way to incorporate storage in your bar and feature fun pieces of furniture.

“Designed for wine lovers who enjoy entertaining often, this wet bar was installed in the dining room where they host dinner parties, holiday meals and entertain most of the time,” says designer Nathan J. Reynolds. “Next to the kitchen, it’s a convenient place for additional counter space for mixing drinks, plating desserts, or serving coffee and after-dinner drinks.” The design includes a Kohler sink, Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer drawers, and a Sub-Zero wine refrigerator.

Concealed behind pocket doors that help it blend into the wall when not in use, this bar boasts remarkably rich storage despite its small size. “This bar was designed and fabricated in American walnut for an apartment on Central Park West in New York City,” says architect James Wagman. It not only includes storage for 32 bottles of wine, a full supply of spirits, and glassware and other essentials, but even features integrated lighting.

When creating a bar to service the kitchen and dining room for a client who entertained regularly, Teri Turan’s biggest challenge was space: “We only had a 47-inch space to fit a wine captain, an ice maker, storage for top shelf bottles, mixers, glassware, cocktail napkins and bar paraphernalia,” she says. Custom cabinets and careful shopping for extra-small appliances got the job done. She finished off the look with Persia Pearl granite countertops and honed travertine tile on the backsplash.

.  This cherry L-shaped home bar is fairly large for a bar cabinet you can buy online.  It’s not exactly all that portable within your home, but at the same time it offers that “bar experience” which is great.  It’s perfect for finished basements, billiards rooms and entertainment rooms.

For flexibility in a small space, consider creating a bar from a cart or cabinet on wheels, as designer Leanne Ford did here: You can move it out of the way when you need the extra room. When styling your bar, “mix your bottles and glassware with special odds and ends that have meaning to you,” says Ford. “That will give the space some character and turn your bar into something special for you and your guests to enjoy.”

This is another option.  It’s more expensive, but you’ll get a much larger bar than the types you’ll buy at an online store or local store.  If you’re looking for something substantial with plumbing and custom electrical work, your best bet is to seek out custom bar/cabinet shops who can design, build and install your home bar for you.

If you have the space, a ready-made unit is the easiest way to add a bar to your home. These are available to purchase at many online retailers as well as furniture stores, and typically are constructed of either wood or composite wood. Things to consider when buying a freestanding bar include the size of your space, the style of the bar and whether you would like it to have a water hookup.

If you love concocting new drinks for friends and entertaining in your home, then creating a home bar should be next on your to-do list. These seven home bar ideas will help you create a space that’s original, functional and attractive enough to become the centerpiece of your at-home entertaining.

The clever location of this wet bar makes great use of an often-wasted space. The placement, in an entry foyer easily accessible from formal living areas, is perfect. And, says architect Alex Heyko-Porebski, “when not in use the bar can be closed off behind bi-folding joinery panels that match the staircase, so it can remain unnoticed.” Timber veneered cabinets and shelves and mirrored panels on the walls add glamour to the bar’s interior.

Seating is key to having guests linger in your bar area, whether with traditional barstools or comfortable lounge seating. You want to have room for your guests to socialize comfortably; this can be as simple as adding a few vintage chairs near the bar or rearranging your space so that chairs, couches and other seating complement the bar area.

The front is elegant while the rear storage is very smartly designed to store a great deal of wine, liquor, dishes and accessories.  It’s compact in design… kind of like the luxury RV of wine bars.

Nestled in the corner of a large kitchen designed for a family of five, this small wet bar was planned to serve the needs of the entire clan. “It’s prepped and ready to hold all of the fixings for adult beverages, but instead of wine storage we incorporated a chilled fridge space for water bottles, children’s drinks and beverages,” says the design team. “With glass storage above, the homeowners can also display their glassware and china.”

.  As you can see, the amount of storage in this rustic home bar cabinet unit is substantial.  However, notice that it doesn’t include a wine rack.  In the center where the larger bottles are place, that’s a Lazy Susan, which is a great storage feature.

.  This is a beautiful home bar unit with sturdy foot railing, extensive storage including a wine rack and locking storage, and sturdy construction.  Moreover, it offers a built-in ice bucket and refrigerator access – two not-so-common features.

.  This is not your typical home bar design.  It’s a mid-century modern style with vinyl upholstery and chrome feet.  As you can see, it’s fairly small so it fits in many rooms.  If your living room is decorated in a mid-century modern design, this bar could fit in nicely.

During the renovation of a home in Greenwich, Conn., Anthony DeRosa of DeRosa Builders was able to incorporate a wet bar into the design of the family room without adding on or stealing space from the seating area. “We fit the bar into a little-used closet,” says DeRosa.

The first thing you’ll want to decide is where to put your home bar. Common placements include kitchens and dining rooms, although living rooms and basements are also popular, as people also entertain guests in those rooms. If you live in an area with great weather year-round, you could even consider an outdoor bar.

Not ready for a full-on renovation? A bar cart is an easy and inexpensive way to create a bar area and showcase specialty liquors, and it can be easily moved to different places in your home to serve different purposes (or parties). While there are plenty of options available at online retailers, you could also look at vintage shops, estate sales and thrift stores for a whimsical, one-of-a-kind piece.

Just because space is tight doesn’t mean you have to forgo the convenience of a bar area. This compact example, tucked into spare shelves beneath a staircase, is a perfect example. Says designer Leanne Ford: “You do not need to have an actual ‘bar’ in your place, just get creative with your space. Save a little bit of room on a bookshelf and let the bottles mix in with other treasures and books.”
