Dottie's bar ideas
I think this shows a fridge drawer - a convenient way to access drinks when the fridge is under the counter.
I like the colourful mosaic tile. It could go well with the coloured stone idea but bring a modern edge to the bar area. The small sink gives a good example of what our counter will contain.
This is a more tame backsplash idea, utilizing the variations in stone colours.
Here's an example of an elaborate wine rack. Something on a much smaller scale could be in the bar corner of our basement.
The wine storage could include display shelves for hungarian wine bottles or german beer steins.
The bottom cupboard is dark and the upper cabinets are light, introducing colour. The blue grey could work well with the stone tile floor.
