Just like any room in your house, a basement bar design should reflect your personal style. If your taste is elegant and classic, then you may want to consider a dark wood bar with a marble or granite countertop and leather-wrapped stools. This basement bar option allows for setting the mood with a lighting design that gives the bar a soft glow. Line bar shelving with wine glasses, crystal, and top shelf wine and spirits. Choose paint colors that will accent the bar's rich design, like red, ivory or a deep purple.

A basement wet bar within a game room is a typical choice in many homes. Invest in a poker or pool table, air hockey or even arcade games to give the bar area a fun feel.
