X: X-tra space
Every house has that one spot that just can’t decide what it wants to be. If you have a space in the house that could be so much more, take inspiration from this McPhee Associates’ designed home in Harwich Port. What could have been just a small, hall-like area has been transformed into a beautiful, functional wet bar. Centered between the great room, living room and dining room, the wet bar provides homeowners with easy access to the items they need while entertaining, without taking up too much room. Not only that, it still functions as a hallway, providing a straight through from the foyer to the living room, rather than going around through the great room. “The challenge was really just trying to fit the items into this space as it’s not large, while not making it too big of a room. Every inch matters and was designed purposefully,” says Rob McPhee, president. While this wet bar was built and designed with its purpose in mind, any small space can be lifted to its full potential with just a little help.
