we're in the process of remodeling our basement and we'd like a beverage center in part of it.
the section we are designating for the kids play area/ snack bar is approx 15 x 20. there is a 8x10 area between that and the main are (15x25) where the kids will play as well.
We figure we'll have about 12-14 linear feet of countertop to work with. there will be no upper cupboards, but possible some shelves for bottles and decorations.
in that 12 feet we'd like to have a microwave ( popcorn and the like mostly), a dishwasher ( small mainly for glasses and bowls that would stay down there) , a small bar sink, and the aformentioned beverage center.
The beverage center we'd like to be able to fit under a standard countertop height and be able to hold a few bottles of wine and some assorted cans ... maybe 30 or so. more is ok, those are just minimums.
Even if you don't have specific model recommendations, what are some things I should be looking for in a beverage center?
Also looking for recommendations for dishwasher.
no particular style, probably stainless, but black is my preference.
