Wet Bar Appliances?

SeaKozOctober 26, 2012

Hi Folks,

We made a last minute decision in our remodel to add a wet bar in our basement. This leads to me needing to pick bar appliances. My plan is to include a beverage center, a dishwasher, and either an under counter freezer or an ice maker.

Can anyone recommend a beverage center and either a freezer or ice maker? Am I missing any appliances?

Do a 24" fridge/freezer combo that has an ice maker in it for half the cost and plumbing issues that doing all of those individual units will require. Then just add a DW.

Without a budget it is tough to tell what fits your needs. I think Perlick makes the best beverage centers. And in a small area where people probably are only using glasses it might be worthwhile to get a Fisher and Paykel tall dishdrawer. Easy to load and unload. Sub-zero makes a pretty nice icemaker as well.

U-Line has a 24"w combo refrigerator and *clear* ice maker that's very nice. Manitowoc's SM50 probably the best 15"w clear ice maker IMO, followed by the Scotsman which is less expensive. You can also get an undercounter fridge/freezer or fridge/freezer/icemaker combination. Add to that a small sink, disposer, small dishwasher (18"w full height or 24"w single drawer type), a microwave or convection/microwave oven and if applicable a 12"w two-burner cooktop (or even a one-burner).

Thank you all for the advice! I'm shocked at how expensive these under counter fridges are. I think we're going to skip the ice maker as we don't use ice too often. Our primary use case will be keeping soda and beer cold so I'm thinking a 24" under counter fridge might be the best choice for me.
