A new wet bar trend for 2021

“We’re always on the lookout for unique materials to help our clients create singularly beautiful remodels,” explains owner John Murphy, and we made a great find in a company that makes remarkable solid wood material for kitchen or bath countertops and free-floating shelving.”

Peruvian Walnut wood countertop. Durata® Waterproof Permanent Finish in Satin sheen ensures the top will remain safe from red wine stains and spills.

Grothhouse, a 25-year old custom wood countertop company, has come up with some of the most stunning solid wood offerings I’ve seen in ages,” says Murphy. “And this recent wet-bar collection is a perfect example of how carefully curated wood can transform a simple set of white cabinets into a jaw-dropping design statement,” Murphy concludes.

Grothhouse offers more than 60 wood species and 30 edge profiles. At a price point similar to Cambria, Grothhouse is sure to be a go-to alternative in 2021. Ask your Murphy Bros. design consultant if this alternative might be just right for your next remodel.
