Do you have an unused alcove or funky space in your house and don’t know exactly what to do with it? This client came up with a great idea for an unused 48″ wide alcove in her dining room by putting in an under-the-counter wine cooler surrounded by cabinetry. The wine cooler was appproximately 24″ wide leaving a balanced look with 24″ of cabinetry tied into it. The wood was maple with a distressed warm chestnut brown finish. The antique seeded glass shows off her beautiful display of wine and cocktail glasses. Lights were installed in the soffit above to give a visual effect as well as to light up the area for serving. The upper cabinets are tied into the soffit with 4-1/4″ crown moulding. Antique bronze knobs keep in pace with the warm tones of the wood. What a great choice for the granite – it blends the wood tones and wall colors perfectly! Beautiful job! Do you have any unused nooks and crannies hiding in your home waiting to be put to good use? Wining and Dining looks and sounds pretty good to me.
