The home bar that takes up a corner of the room or an entire room is definitely the one to have. But, what if you don’t have that kind of space? What if you are not ready for an entire bar, but would like a comfortable place to sit and drink other than the couch? The In-Wall Bar is the thing to do.
It installs just like the old drop-down ironing board. But, I think it’s better if it pulls up instead of drops down. The premise is that you can have storage space inside the wall for different drinks. If you live in an apartment or a small home, the in-wall bar will make a welcome addition.
You can build a structure in the wall between the studs that allow you to hide your bar when not in use. Pull up the bar and your various drinking accessories are underneath right where you stored them. It doesn’t have to be that technical of a job. The finish, while not difficult, will be the hardest part of building the in-wall bar, especially if you have drywall, which most apartments and small houses do.
Build your wall bar in the dimensions that you want. Build a shelving unit for the top of the bar that holds glasses and mugs. A shelving unit at the bottom of the bar holds various other drinking accessories. An extended shelving unit at the bottom of the bar is utilized to pour drinks and you have a wall bar. It’s rather easy to do it yourself.
You don’t need an elaborate bar that takes up a corner of a room or an entire room. It can wait until you have a home of your own or a larger home for the addition of this nature. Until then, you can still enjoy a home bar that doesn’t take up much space but serves a great purpose.
