Kitchen liquor

Asker hanging liquor bar

Here’s one from a contributor who rather not be credited. He says, “I used Ikeahacker for ideas a lot when I moved, and thought I ought to at least contribute what I came up with.” Thank you! :)

Constrained for space and renting (so not wanting to make big holes in the wall) I decided to hang everything I could in the kitchen.  This included hanging pots and pans over the entrance to the kitchen (careful to hang the small ones over the passage to permit passage for up to 6’3″), and the Asker suspended liquor bar hack.

I piggybacked off the studs holding up the cabinet to hang an Asker bar, and three Asker dish drainers. Using left over pilasters from a shelving project, I added wine glass racks to hang underneath. Voila! Extra storage for glass, liquor, wine, and a reminder to drop-in guests to accept the offer of a drink. It’s not cheap ($90 for racks, $15 for the bar, $18 for the wine glass racks), but cheaper than any alternative I could find.”

  1. Very cool– where did the wine glass racks come from? Thanks!

    I really like it! You might be able to get shorter hooks for the pots, and reclaim another inch or two of headroom, if you care. You could probably even just clip off the hooks you’ve got, and rebend them around something of the correct radius (ie, an exposed metal pipe, whatever.)

    great use of space, i very like it, how much about it ?

  5. That is a brilliant use of space. We are in a very small house – so do what we can to make the best of what space we have. You’ve given me an idea!

    you can also hack the hack and hang everything in a closet, maybe, or behind some glass doors to have it look like a “real” home bar corner :)
