When we bought this 1970’s ranch home half of the basement wasn’t finished. The part that was unfinished was by the walk out basement door. Which was a win because we wanted to add a wet bar that had easy access to the backyard and pool. We imagine playing outside, and or swimming and running down the steps to the pink fridge to get a beverage and a cup with a scoop of pebble ice! And thankfully that vision came to life!
I planned this wet bar around this Pink Smeg fridge. I wanted to put a pink fridge in our Connecticut kitchen but in the end decided to stick with the classic white. I was so excited to have a space to put this cheerful piece in!
This is our first time ever owning a second fridge! I know often people will put another fridge in the garage. We loved having the extra space around the holidays. Right now it just has drinks. I imagine lots of popsicles in the summer!
I wanted to add a floating shelf to display items we use in this space, and in an effort to keep it light and bright!
I went with sconces that had an exposed light so it would brighten the entire space rather than just shine directly down on the shelf. And we have lights under the shelf that are an LED strip our electrician put in and we coordinated with our cabinet designer. PS- the cutest cups (similar HERE).
Anyone else love a floating shelf as much as me?! Great way to add some dimension to a room, and makes it easy to find what we need. All the bowls for popcorn, snacks and treats!
I chose the same honed marble us the upstairs island, it is SO pretty in person. I love the look of honed counters, feels causal and lived in.
These might be my favorite faucets! Love the gold with that yellow tile behind. So many messages about being concerned with the water temperature- you can turn them on at the same time to get warm water:) To wash hands there are bathrooms close by. Can we just take a moment to check out how pretty this tile is up close. There are slight color variations (which I like) and I like how the edges look worn and vintage. So happy with how it turned out and how well is flows with the honeycomb tile in the pool room.
The Ice maker made it to this space! We had this ice maker in our Connecticut home and loved it! The only complaint is it doesn’t do well in a covered space. You have to have it out so the back and top get good ventilation or it over heats. Other than that we love the pebble ice! Much more affordable than our under counter ice maker we did upstairs.
This wet bar is also in-between two guest bedrooms. A sneak peak into the room with three twin beds. I love that if guests are thirsty or need a snack they don’t have to go all the way upstairs to get it.
You see this view when you walk into the pool room from the outside basement entrance. I hope this view screams “you’re welcome here! Let’s have some fun!”
