Wet Bar

A wet bar is the perfect space for entertaining guests or kicking back with a drink at the end of a long day. A well-designed wet bar should include everything you need to create and serve drinks. This includes abundant storage and countertop space, a sink for easy access, and an island with bar seating. You can also add a small refrigerator or a wine cooler to keep your drinks cold, and microwave to prepare and heat snacks without stepping into your kitchen

With a team of experienced designers, carpenters, and installers who go the extra mile to deliver what you expect, we design made-to-measure cabinets that fit flawlessly in your home.

    Designing the Right Wet Bar

    When done right, incorporating a wet bar into your space can significantly increase the value of your home. When designing your dream wet bar, it’s important to consider your storage needs, seating capacity, functionality, and design preferences.


    When designing your dream wet bar, consider your storage needs. You can maximize your storage space by adding floating cabinets above your sink and appliances. You can also add cabinets, drawers, or open shelves to your bar island. Typically, only the backside of the island is used for storage as the front side is blocked by bar stools.

    Depending on the size of your wine collection, you may want to add a cellarette into your custom design. Cellarette is not only perfect for storing and organizing your wine bottles but also adds a vintage aesthetic to your bar.

    A wet bar is often an extension of the kitchen or entertainment space. You can either use same cabinet design as used in the kitchen to create a cohesive aesthetic or use unique style for a standout look. If you plan on using your wet bar as an additional kitchen storage, you may want to incorporate closed cabinets and drawers into your custom design.

    Decorating Style

    It’s essential to decide on your aesthetic when designing your ideal wet bar. Some of the most popular design styles include contemporary, traditional, and farmhouse.


    Achieve a contemporary wet bar look by incorporating flat-panel cabinets into your design. Use a neutral color pallete for your cabinets and countertop for a cleaner look.


    A traditional wet bar uses glass-front cabinets made from dark wood for a rich and luxurious aesthetic. Consider using overlay appliances to match your traditional dark wood cabinets.


    Nothing screams farmhouse more than white colored cabinets paired with light wood. You can also use distressed wooden cabinets and a brick-inspired backsplash for a rustic charm

    Custom Design Options


    A wet bar gets its name from the sink. You can use unusual shapes and sizes for the wet bar sink to give your space a unique feel. Some of the most unique sink designs include a martini glass-shaped sink or a river sink.

    Built-In Appliances

    Adding built-in appliances to your wet bar allows for easy preparation and storage. Popular wet bar appliances include a mini-fridge, microwave, toaster, wine cooler, and an ice machine.


    Give your space the feel of a sports bar by installing a TV on custom-built TV panel for your wet bar


    There are many different lighting options that can assist you in achieving the look your desire, the most popular being spotlights and pendant lights. Spotlights are an energy-efficient option and can be used to highlight the entire wet bar or certain parts of it. Many people add spotlights behind their wine glass display to make it the focal point of their bar. Pendant lighting, on the other hand, usually hangs over the bar island to create a more intimate ambiance.

    Choosing the Right Material

    Solid hardwood doors in maple, oak, or cherry are commonly used for stained doors where the wood grain’s natural beauty is enhanced and protected by a professionally applied finish. Wood doors are strong and durable, and scratches or dents can be repaired with sanding and a coat of matching stain.

    Stained wood doors are a great choice for homeowners wanting classic-looking cabinetry that shows off both the beauty and the sturdiness of hardwood doors.

    MDF or Medium Density Fiberboard is a manufactured wood product that combines wood fibers with wax and resin. MDF is denser than hardwood and offers a much smoother finish with no graining. This makes MDF an ideal material for making painted cabinet doors. Due to its density and consistent structure, MDF can be machined using high-speed CNC cutting tools. These tools help create a variety of different 3-D profiles which are perfect for cabinet doors.

    MDF, as a material, is not waterproof. However, by painting its surface, MDF becomes highly water-resistant which makes it ideal for high humidity places like bathrooms or kitchens. It’s also a favorite for cottages as its durability helps keep it intact during the hot and humid summers.

    Acrylic is a non-toxic finish that gives a perfectly smooth texture and a high-gloss appearance to your space. Acrylic doors are made by applying sheets of acrylic over medium-density fiberboard (MDF), covering it with a protective layer, and sealing at the edges.

    This high-quality synthetic material comes in a perfect mirror-like finish that’s shatter and chip resistant. Available in a wide range of colors, acrylic finish gives a resplendent appearance to your home.

    Thermofoil cabinets are cost-effective, easy to care for, and easy to maintain. They are available in a wide range of colors and patterns. Thermofoil cabinets are made using a flexible vinyl material that is applied by heating the vinyl and molding it over medium-density fiberboard (MDF).

    Thermofoil cabinets are prized as ideal for kitchen or bathroom cabinets because of their superior moisture resistance. Their laminate surface is stain-resistant and easy to clean. The laminate also ensures the cabinet is resistant to chips and cracks, even in high humidity environments.

    Wet Bars FAQs

    What type of material does Melio Custom Cabinets use for wet bars?

    Melio Custom Cabinets uses a variety of materials for wet bars, including hardwood, medium-density fiberboard, plywood, particleboard, and laminate.

    How much space is required to install a wet bar?

    Any area can be transformed into a wet bar, depending on the client’s requirements and the available space.

    Does a wet bar need electrical installation?

    A wet bar doesn’t need an electrical installation itself. It does require a plumbing line to install your sink and faucet on the counter. However, if one chooses to install LED pot lights, a wine cooler, and a mini-fridge on the bar, an electrical connection will be required in that case.

    What should a wet bar include?

    A functional yet appealing wet bar will include storage and cooling spaces for your liquor bottles, glassware, utensils to make cocktails, and any other items used in preparing your drinks.  A wet bar derives its name from providing access to water, therefore, a wet bar always has a sink and a faucet installed on the counter.
