If you are designing a bar, you are going to need to have a way to keep your beverages nice and frosty. The usual way of doing this is by getting a bar fridge. Although you can just use an ice bucket or cooler, bar fridges are surely the easiest and cleanest way to accomplish this task. One problem that people find is that the basic models of these little refrigerators tend to look quite ugly. They come in three main colors, white, black, and stainless steel. White and black are more common and nearly always cheaper as well. If you are looking for a way to either hide or transform your fridge, here are some tips.
First of all, if you just want to get the thing out of sight, you buy one that is small enough to just put right into one of the cabinets. Then all you need to do is open the cabinet door and you will have access to your fridge. One problem many people run into when doing this is that the refrigerator is too big to fit. In this case, you can try making it blend in with the cabinets by putting it on the end and putting wooden panels around it that match the cupboards.
If you don’t want to hide your bar refrigerator, why not give it some style? Although you can buy mini refrigerators with designs already on them, you can easily accomplish this yourself by putting some good looking decals or stickers on it. Some people even go as far as drilling a hole right through the front of the fridge and turning it into a keg-erator. You can buy small kegs of beer, put them inside, and pour it out a tap in the front of the fridge. This is a great way to keep your beer cold and grab some attention.
