Basement Bar Ideas and Designs
Add a bar to your finished basement with these design ideas.
A basement bar is a fun addition to a renovated space, providing a great area for entertaining family and friends.
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.
It might be a bit of a sterotype, but one basement bar idea that is popular among men is a sports-themed bar. Pair it with a lounge area, flat screen television and decorative memorabilia from his favorite sports teams to create a space where everyone will want to watch the big game.
Other design ideas for basement bars include fresh paint colors, budget-friendly drinking glasses and coasters that suit your particular style.
