Feature We Love: Wet Bar


An entertainer’s dream home is centered around making every guest happy and comfortable. On this list of amenities are things like open floor plans, extra bathrooms, a well-stocked fridge, and, today’s feature, a wet bar.

 

A well-placed wet bar, by the living room or main entertaining space, is the ultimate convenience. Who wants to have to run to the kitchen every time they need a splash of water, a new glass, or more ice? This amenity is also an easy way to allow your guests to help themselves without disrupting kitchen activities.

 

While it may not be the most necessary feature in a home, a wet bar is definitely an added bonus for every host-with-the-most.

A short drive around town will tell you that spring has sprung in the front yards of DFW. Tulips are in bloom, hedges are trimmed, and homeowners are getting down and dirty to spruce up their curb appeal.
