The dresser top can be used for mixing and displaying beverages. You can Increase your display space by placing simple shelves on the wall behind.
04 Simple trey
If you don’t have room for a whole new piece of furniture, just display all your barware on a mirrored or wooden tray and place it in your living room. You could use an extra tray for displaying decanters and glass ware.
05 A hidden bar
A hidden bar cabinet is a good option in your living room because by day it looks like the average living room cabinet, and by night you have a fully stocked bar.
