Trending: Dedicated Spaces for Beverages in Kitchen Design

Updated: Nov 10, 2023

The kitchen is the heart of the home and it’s not just a place to cook food. It’s a place for socializing, relaxation, and entertaining. Now, as we head into 2024, we are seeing an increasingly popular trend in kitchen design: the dedicated space for beverages. From coffee bars to wine cellars, homeowners are dedicating specific spaces to their favorite beverages.

In this blog post, we will explore this trending kitchen design and why it’s becoming a popular choice among homeowners.

Coffee Bars

Coffee has become an essential part of our daily routine, and there’s no reason why it cannot be stylishly incorporated into our home design. A coffee bar is an excellent addition to any kitchen and is perfect for coffee lovers who want to enjoy a hot cup of coffee quickly. With a coffee bar, you can store your coffee machine, mugs, and coffee pods in one place. Enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning has never been more convenient or stylish!

Wine Cellars and Cocktail Bars

If you appreciate a good glass of wine, a wine cellar can be a great addition to your kitchen design. When we think of the term “wine cellar” imagery of a literal old-world cellar may come to mind complete with stone or even dirt floors and walls of wine racks. In today’s world though, a wine cellar can be beautiful temperature-controlled cabinetry or racks added just about anywhere in the home.

Another increasingly popular addition to kitchen design is the inclusion of private cocktail bars to entertain guests or unwind after a long day. Cocktail bars provide an elegant drink storage and serving option in the kitchen area.

These dedicated spaces are perfect for storing wine bottles, other alcoholic beverages, barware, and accessories in a controlled environment. Apart from storage, these spaces are also a great visual addition to your kitchen design.

Smoothie Bars

For those who prioritize health, smoothie bars can be the perfect addition to the kitchen. Creating a dedicated space to house your favorite smoothie ingredients and other necessary equipment has never been easier with advanced cabinetry options that include refrigerated drawers and mini freezers to house fruits and vegetables. A smoothie bar in the kitchen is particularly useful for those who lead busy lifestyles and find it challenging to find time to gather the necessary ingredients, and equipment and make smoothies every day.

Non-Specific Beverage Bars

Beverage bars do not need to be specific. Maybe you just need a place for the kids to grab a drink and snack after school. No matter the use you decide on, having a space in the kitchen specifically for beverages, glassware, and other related equipment will free up more counter space and cabinets for other things.

In conclusion, dedicated spaces for beverages in kitchen design and beyond are becoming increasingly popular due to the convenience they offer homeowners. We have seen an increase in demand for these spaces in our home renovation projects. With everything in one place, it’s easy to make a cup of coffee or pour a glass of wine without having to leave the kitchen. Not only do these spaces look fantastic, but they provide convenience and organization to your kitchen. The dedicated spaces for beverages are a must-try trend for homeowners looking to spruce up their kitchens.
