Imagine it’s the summer and your parents are coming over to visit or you have friends staying overnight. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a mini beverage center that you could put in the guest room so if they get hungry or thirsty in the middle of the night they can help themselves, without having to feel uncomfortable going into your refrigerator? You can put one away in a closet or corner, or since they look so nice, you can even leave it out in the open.
Maybe you’re planning an indoor party? Maybe a shower for the bride- or mom-to-be, a small get together for your extended family, or a product demonstration party like Pampered Chef for you and your best girlfriends?
Whatever you’re doing, you don’t want your guests to feel uneasy about grabbing themselves a drink from the refrigerator. And you probably don’t want to be constantly serving everyone. That’s why we recommend getting a mini beverage center for the guest room to store your drinks. Think about getting one that gets cold enough to store food as well, and you can keep everything in one fridge. While many beverage centers are great for wine and soda, only a few can stay cold enough for safe food storage.
We also suggest getting one with a glass door so your guests can see everything in there before they open the door. The clear view of the refreshments is more inviting to your guests, and it allows them to decide if they want the red wine or the light beer without holding the door open and wasting energy.
