Fully Stocked: Jarrett Design LLC takes home beverage centers to the next level

There’s real power behind a good beverage. Whether it’s the aroma of coffee that gets us out of bed in the morning, the lure of weekend cocktails with friends, or a simple passion for pinot, prepared beverages are a communal good that tap into our senses, connect us with friends and can even help with stress relief.

In the past several years, there has been an increasing trend in homeowners asking interior designers to dedicate a space in their home for the perfect beverage center – one that will showcase creativity and vision while enhancing their lifestyle.  With this trend, however, designers have found ways to utilize space in areas of the house outside of the kitchen, bringing both simple and complex beverage centers to dining rooms, family rooms, and game and media rooms.

With a little ingenuity, tight corners, tiny walls and underutilized nooks can turn into totally functional spaces. These dead spaces usually allow for floor-to-ceiling storage, as well, so you have room for all of the necessary beverage center accessories. Coffee drinkers usually want a place to store mugs, K-Cups, and milk frothers; wine lovers are going to want a place to tuck away their bottles and glasses while displaying their corks.

One of the reasons beverage centers have become so popular in homes is that they offer opportunity to save money on entertaining yourself or visitors, while also having a stylish addition to the home that is appealing to prospective buyers. They can also introduce a fresh, fun dynamic to your home’s aesthetic while adding convenience and efficiency.

A: Typically, we get started with a complimentary in-home consultation.  This way, we can learn more about the project while the client gets to know us and how we work.  From there, we develop a wish list with the client, measure, discuss budget and start the design process.  We help our clients select cabinetry style and finish, appliances, plumbing fixtures, counter tops, backsplash and hardware with their budget in mind. After a design is finalized and selections are made, the cabinetry and other items are ordered.  We also help coordinate contractors and assist in project management.
