filling an odd opening
 
I am adding tile to my bar area. At the same time there is an odd opening by the sink that I'm trying to coverup. There is a small mini refrigerator in this area, but I need to cover the opening.

What can I use? It must be easy to open, but yet sturdy just in case if there is a water leak, etc.....

Make a panel for the opening and use screws, from the inside, to hold it in place. Either cover it with spare paneling that matches what you've got on the walls or chose something complimentary to the rest of the room.

The panel could just be a simple bit of plywood with a 2x2 or 2x4 frame around the back of it.

Where is the mini fridge?

I figured that...
why aren't you putting doors in the area you want to close off?
the extra storage area would come in handy, no?

That's what I was thinking. I have a huge storage area though.

That's really nice, I would make a door for it, and keep my garbage pail
in there.
Put the hinges on the wall side, so it's easy to open from standing
in front of the sink.
When is the party?

The garbage pail is under the sink already. The opening is to the left of that.

We didn't build this bar. The previous owner did. I'll have to find out where I can get the same type of door.

Just an idea....looks like unstained flat panel hickory to me... try going to Floor Decor... bet they have a pretty close matching flooring.... and build the panel/door?

For small trim pieces in remodels, I find alot of matching pieces in flooring selections... alot of choices, and you do not have to screw with multiple attempts at matching stain and varnish.

Too much wood IMHO - may look cool if you get a canvas picture/printout of something (sports team, band, something that goes with the bar theme - whatever) and used that as a removable panel. Staple it onto some plywood in the back to keep the look clean and make it oversized to cover the entire side if you want. Plenty of places to have whatever you want printed onto a canvas material online. Can even add some padding to give it a plush look if you'd like

Looks like pine cabinet ends and paneling, hickory glue up doors, maple face frames and top. Are the other cabinet ends T&G pine?
