Whether you’re short on space or just in search of a unique style, a wall bar cabinet can come in handy. These storage units are great for apartments, condos, mobile homes, tiny houses, outdoor patios, and more!
Today, we’ll explore some sweet wall bar cabinet options for sale. And we’ll have a look at some DIY projects as well. Our goal is to give you plenty of inspiration as you think about installing a wall bar of your own!
What Is a Wall Bar Cabinet?
We’ll define it like this: any bar that hangs on your wall. And we like it when there’s a space for preparing cocktails and pours. So, not just a shelf or cabinet, you know. A place to mix and serve is ideal.
These shelves and surfaces work particularly well in smaller spaces. Just because your floorplan is limited, your drinking experience doesn’t have to be! But you know what? Maybe these just suit your style better. That’s okay, too. A wall bar cabinet could be great indoors or outdoors. Just think about where it would work out best. Hey, maybe you need one inside AND outside!
Basically, if it’s not a free-standing, traditional bar top or on-the-floor shelf, we’ll let it slide right into this article. And into our hearts, for that matter. You may be thinking, “Oh, these are pretty basic. Nothing special.” You couldn’t be more wrong. There are some amazing options out there. And some of them, you might even build yourself!
The Perfect Wall Bar Cabinet for You
You’ll need to think about a few things before selecting the best wall bar cabinet path for you! Consider the following:
- Where will I install my wall bar cabinet? What’s the best location?
- Can I find a bar style that complements my home style?
- How much space for storage do I need? What will be stored here?
- What’s my budget?
- Am I in the market for a bar cabinet online order or a DIY project?
- Do I have a growing collection of booze and barware, or will I keep just a few bottles and minimal barware on hand?
- When will I use my wall bar cabinet?
