Wet Bar

January 14, 2013

You might remember that we had this funny set up with three “entrances” to the bedroom: through the sun room, through the half-bath/master-bathroom and through the wet bar.

The wet bar was a hallway with a sink and a space for a mini refrigerator until Grisha and his father took out the sink and counter-top over the holidays. Grisha added a curtain rod and a shelf. Before:

There are several remaining decisions for the space before it can be called complete. If we make it into two closets, a coat closet for the living room and a second closet for the bedroom, do we put a wall separating them in the middle or do we just treat them like separate spaces with a secret passage between them? Dividing it would leave approximately 23.5”x54” for the coat closet and 38”x66” for the bedroom closet before accounting for the space the wall would take up.

Or do we make it into one big closet for either room? Keep in mind that we are definitely going to close off the entrance between the bathrooms when we update the master bathroom. Is the sun room entrance too far or too cumbersome (there are four steps, two into and two out of that room)?

And what do we do with those folding doors from the living room? You can see below that they make the fireplace feel pretty claustrophobic. We could put in a more central, traditional door or wall it up. And does that minor aesthetic detail change your opinion about how to divide the space?

    I vote for option three, no closet door in the living room. Then you will have a spot for furniture and the living room will be a real room. You can never have too much closet space in the Master BR

    I agree, no closet door by the fireplace, but I see the 2nd bedroom has 2 closets. Why not close it up on the bedroom side and put a door on the living room side for a coat closet?
