Looking to turn your entertainment room into the perfect party hotspot? Then installing a wet bar is a must. Here’s a guide to getting the best wet bar to fit your home.
The cost of installing a wet bar can vary greatly depending on the size, countertop and cabinet materials, whether it’s custom-built or manufactured, as well as the cost of labor. A basic wet bar with three cabinets, a sink, faucet, electrical outlet, and Formica countertop should cost between $2,500 and $3,000. Talk to contractors and receive a more specific estimate for your home.
Most often, wet bars require the same regular cleaning as your kitchen—wiping down the countertops with a sponge, warm water and soap, and occasionally cleaning off the cabinets as well. Check with your manufacturer for directions on how to care for your particular wet bar.
There are a few types available: a pantry bar that is usually built in and closed in; closet bars for entertainment rooms with limited space; freestanding bars that aren’t connected to any adjacent wall; back bars that come with a backer - usually a mirror - to enhance the bar’s image; and stainless steel bars for an updated modern look.
