There are plenty of ways to design and execute a bar for an Alexandria VA kitchen design, but check out these tips and ideas to start.

Glass Door For Cabinets

Glass cabinet doors have always been a staple in any Alexandria VA kitchen design that’s looking to make a big visual impact. These types of cabinet doors come in so many styles and configurations. It’s great for showcasing your wine and liquor collection, cocktail glasses, and bar tools.

Undercabinet Lighting

The right lighting setup can add more luxury and extravagance to your Alexandria VA kitchen design. For a wet bar, this is a must-have. Think about the steps you need to prepare a drink, and more for a crowd. Plus, this type of entertaining more often takes place in the evening. Undercabinet lighting doubles as a handy task light to illuminate your bar counter as you craft some delicious beverages.

Wine Rack and Wine Fridge

This idea is for wine fans. A wine rack is perfect for storing your favorite bottles of red or white. Not only is it convenient to keep space-efficiently display your wine collection, but a wine rack is sure to impart a grand, stylish impression on the rest of your kitchen design. Prefer your wine and other drinks chilled? Add an under-counter wine fridge to your bar center.

Open Shelves and Wine Glass Holder

Open-shelving is an alternative to glass cabinet doors, and you can swap out a few sections of cabinets to accommodate this option instead. In fact, open shelves lend a more simple yet sophisticated feel to your bar. It works just a well with a wine glass holder rack to display your gorgeous set of drinkware and glasses.

Useful Bar Sink

Whether you create a wet bar or dry bar for your Alexandria VA kitchen design rests with your decision to install a bar sink. This decision will likely be made after you consult with a plumber to see if adding a water line for an extra sink is possible. A home bar looks great with or without the sink, but there’s no denying the added functionality and convenience a wet bar offers for quick water access or clean up needs.
