Imagine a room that represents fun, world travels, an ice cold one and shooting pool. . . These clients wanted to expand into unfinished lower level space and add a wet bar next to their pool table area. We created a bench and walnut table, a 2 color granite plan with drawers, pullout trash, lit liquor shelves and a glass display shelf around the perimeter. The Mr. has travelled for 25 years and collected great conversation items from every corner of the globe. We invented deep hickory display boxes with LED lighting and frosted glass to house those mementos. We provided the stools, the flooring, cabinets, trims, paint choices, support solutions . . . pretty much everything except his super-cool beer tappers on the gold post.
This Table passageway was too tight, so we sized down the table and legs- feels great now!Curious daughter checking out the ice maker. This shot shows the overall shape really well.
Before: Wall on the left to be removed to add space for bar.
The sump pump has to be accessible, but who wants to see it?!? We put the pinball machine over it to create a shadow, then Custom Renovations created a box to cover it – gone but not forgotten.
Cool Holland bar Stools and curvy trims at the “S” curve back of bar.
The White Spring granite has a fantastic red dot in it that picks up our red vinyl (drinky can be messy : 0). To support the “Ganglion” we used 1/2″ steel plate cut with a plasma cutter to a plastic template. It will not move.
The deep display boxes required ingenuity and precision by Eric Curdt of Custom Renovations. Amazing install, Eric! Also, notice the backlit glass wall and stair steps Liquor storage by the elevated bar.
If you look carefully, you’ll see that Eric and Jonathan created excellent lumbar support in this bench. You can play spades and realign your spine at the same time! The table, designed by Jonathan Carson and Pete Voss – built by Pete, matches solid Walnut so well to the stained Hickory cabinets – it’s weird. The box contains a light that backlights the glass center oval for a trippy effect in the evening.
Atacama Black granite lookin’ REAL good. Yes, this lower bar is curved somewhat, corresponding to the “Ganglion” of White Spring above. The back of the bar has an “S” shape which gave Eric a creative challenge. He installed trims in a picture frame shape with curves to the contour. Nice.
