Selecting A Bar Fridge For Entertaining At Home

If you love to entertain friends and family in your home, and have a bar to serve drinks to serve your visitors their favorite libations, then you will need a bar fridge behind the counter to keep their beer, and the other items that are needed to mix drinks, and storing fruit for garnishments cold.  There are models specifically made to blend into a party décor and will cost a little more than the standard college fridge.  Branding of these fridges is becoming quite popular by alcohol makers, and make for a more neighborhood pub look and feel to your in home bar set up.

Bar fridges are available in various small sizes to accommodate any homeowners entertaining needs, and will only require a standard electrical outlet to power the unit. Usually black is the most popular color for this type of application, but many manufactures will give you several choices of colors to match a specific theme. Usually these mini bar fridges have a small freezer compartment, but are so small they are not worth the effort in trying to store items that require temperatures below thirty-two degrees. Just use your kitchen fridge for these items, and option for a unit that does not feature a freezer.

Pricing is well within the grasp of any homeowner, and a mini fridge that will hold enough food and drink products will average about two to three hundred dollars in cost. If you have thrown the budget out the window and want a more professional bar look then by all means purchase a commercial bar back fridge like you see at high end night clubs, and local bistros with bars. Be prepared to spend about three to four thousand dollars for this cooling masterpiece, and get a service contract as well for those unforeseen breakdowns, and maintenance issues.
