Types of Bar Cabinets

A bar unit comes in different types that may be categorized according to its functionality. Following are some common types of bar cabinets:

1. Freestanding Bar Cabinet

This type of bar cabinet is a standalone piece of furniture that can be placed anywhere in your home, just like a display unit. This cabinet includes shelves or drawers for storing liquor bottles, glasses, and barware. They often have a countertop or workspace for mixing and serving drinks. Some freestanding bar cabinets also come with shelves that serve as a wine rack.

The Abruzzo Bar cabinet by Viyom Lifestyles is a perfect example of a freestanding bar unit. It features a series of shelves to hold wine bottles and two drawers at the bottom to store additional barware.

2. Built-in Bar Cabinet 

This bar cabinet is designed to be built into a wall or other surfaces in your home. It can be customized to fit the space and includes features for wine storage, a sink, and a built-in refrigerator. 

A built-in bar unit adds much-needed personality to your living room or home office. Built-in bar unit designs are perfect for decoration and entertainment. 

3. Bar Cart

A bar cart is a smaller, mobile version of a bar cabinet. It is typically on wheels and can be easily moved around your home, making it perfect for entertaining guests in different parts of your home. 

Bar carts may include shelves or trays for storing bottles, glasses, and barware. A bar cart is also useful for commercial purposes at parties and large gatherings.

4. Wet Bar

This term describes a home bar featuring a sink for washing glasses and preparing drinks. This design also comes with complete arrangements and plumbing for the sink and other additional faucets.

5. Dry Bar

 This term describes a home bar that does not include a sink but may include other features, such as built-in storage and a countertop for mixing drinks.

6. Mini Bar

Mini Bar refers to a smaller-scale bar that is usually located in a living room or the basement. A minibar can be wall mounted or even portable with wheels.

7. Cellar bar

A cellar bar is a type of home bar that is used to store and showcase wine bottles. They usually have a wine storage system, a wine chiller, and a sink for wine decanting. 

A cellar bar is primarily made in a closed design, where liquor is concealed in a designer cabinet. The Veneto Bar Cabinet by Viyom Lifestyles is an excellent choice from this genre. 

Uses of Bar Cabinets

While a bar cabinet is not essential for a home, it can be your favorite part of the house. Here are a few reasons why you should invest in a bar cabinet:

1. Safe Storage

A bar cabinet is a great way to store and organize your alcohol, tableware, and other essentials. A bar unit provides a designated space for your fragile liquor bottles, glasses, and other accessories, keeping them out of sight when not in use. 

2. Display Your Collection

Bar units can also be used to display your collection of fine wines and spirits. Many bar cabinets feature built-in wine racks or glass-fronted doors, which allow you to show off your bottles and glasses. One of our favorite display bar units is the Abruzzo Bar Cabinet.

3. Entertaining Guests

A home bar unit creates a mini home bar, making it easy to entertain guests. They provide a convenient workspace for mixing drinks and may include features such as a sink and built-in refrigerator for keeping ingredients fresh. Moreover, a home bar is great for conversation starters and breaking the ice!

4. Organize and Save Space

Bar cabinets are a great way to save space and keep your home organized. Because they are designed to store and display all your alcohol and barware in one place, you would not have to worry about clutter or disorganization.

5. A Status Symbol

A bar cabinet can be a stylish addition to any home. A minibar gives your home a sense of luxury and uniqueness. They are a good option for homeowners and renters who want to add some personality to their living space.

6. Personalized Bar Experience

Bar cabinets provide a personalized home bar experience. You can choose a design that fits your style and decor, and customize it with your favorite bottles and glasses. You can display a liquor collection that shows off your personality to the guests. 

Different Bar Unit Designs in the Market

Like any piece of furniture, a bar unit comes in different aesthetics, such as traditional, modern, and rustic. 

1. Classic or Traditional Design

Traditional bar cabinets feature classic design elements such as ornate moldings, carvings, and elegant finishes. They are often made of wood and can include features such as a built-in wine rack and glass-fronted doors. This design is very similar to a china cabinet and is most suitable for showcasing expensive wine. Rustic bar cabinets feature natural materials such as reclaimed wood and wrought iron. They have a rugged and more natural look.

2. Modern

Modern bar cabinets are characterized by clean lines and a minimalistic design. They often feature sleek, glossy finishes and can be made of materials like glass, metal, and acrylic. 

The Veneto Bar Cabinet by Viyom Lifestyles features a minimal design with stainless steel accents that are fully customizable.

3. Industrial

Industrial bar cabinets feature raw, unfinished materials such as metal, concrete, and rough-hewn wood. They often have a utilitarian look and can include features such as open shelving and a built-in sink.
