Raising the Bar

Location: Tigard, OR

Cheers to the home bar.

During the pandemic shutdown, our clients came up with the idea to transform their unused dining room into a bar where they could enjoy a glass of wine and eventually entertain their tight-knit group of neighbors for their monthly gatherings. Over the years, the dining room space turned into a catchall where extra furniture ended up and featured a rarely played keyboard. The room has a new purpose with a built-in wet bar, wine refrigerator, beverage fridge, and storage cabinets along one wall.


Homeowner Wish List

  • Floor-to-ceiling wine fridge
  • Undercounter beverage refrigerator
  • Wet bar sink
  • Storage cabinets
  • Glass-front display cabinets


Project Outcome and Results


  • Reduced the archway opening between living and dining rooms to fit cabinet depth
  • Removed pocket door to the kitchen and installed new cased opening
  • Custom cabinets house glassware and provide overflow storage from the kitchen
  • Added floor tile at the base of the cabinets for spills
  • Installed Sub-Zero Wine Storage Column and Undercounter Beverage Center
