A Place to Entertain

May is National Home Improvement Month, so throughout the past few weeks, we have posted entertaining space photos every day (every weekday and non-holiday, that is). Here is a compilation of the posts!

Space for Libations

Fox Point Butler's Pantry

This butler’s pantry offers extra storage and features a wet bar with wine and beverage refrigerators, an ice maker, sink, and glass storage. It also has goldleaf tiles and a gold ceiling, tying into the home’s classic and modern aesthetics. The room serves as a connection between entertaining spaces.

Wauwatosa Family Room and Wet Bar

The wet bar is conveniently located between two entertaining spaces – the living room and the kitchen. It’s the perfect spot to mix drinks, store glasses, and serve as extra counter space.

Hartford Butler's Pantry

The butler’s pantry is a transition area, located between the dining room and the library. It serves as extra counter space for entertaining in the dining room and features custom cabinetry, glass storage, and a wine refrigerator.

Hartland Wet Bar

This remodeled wet bar features custom cabinetry, a hammered copper sink, and a Bronzo Quartzite top. The beverage refrigerator and glass storage are a great addition for their gatherings, and the deep drawer allows them to store spirits vertically.

Elm Grove Coffee Bar

This kitchen’s “beverage station” is the perfect spot for the homeowners’ coffee maker, mugs, and snacks.

Kitchen Entertaining

The custom island table is the perfect spot to host a casual brunch or dinner. The kitchen is open to the family room, so guests can move freely about the space and interact with people in the other room.

If you entertain regularly, you’ve probably started quite the collection of platters, linens, glasses, vases, and beyond. Make sure you have a place for everything. The island is a great spot to insert extra storage.

Elm Grove Kitchen Remodel

These custom barn doors serve as a focal point and allow the homeowners to close off the (sometimes) chaotic kitchen from the dining room when hosting guests. It’s the perfect way to keep the spaces open to one another yet separate!

This large island is ideal for setting up a party buffet! The homeowner also wanted part of the island to be raised, so guests could lean against it during gatherings.

Room to Visit

This hearth room is a cozy spot for guests to mingle and relax. Because it neighbors the kitchen, the homeowners can still engage their friends and family while prepping at the island.

This light and airy sunroom is the perfect spot to entertain guests with drinks and appetizers. It also has a direct connection to the patio!

Delafield Screen Porch

This screen porch is accessible from the family room/kitchen area, the patio, and the porch. It is a great spot to enjoy the home’s scenic backdrop, and it helps blur the line between indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces.
