Many of us have basements at home and this space should not be forgotten when decorating your home. It can be converted into a poolside retreat, second living area, your personal home office, another bathroom, guest room or bar. A basement bar is one of the coolest ideas you can come up with because it takes advantage of your basement space and gives you a fantastic relaxation area.
If you have a large basement, consider creating a man cave or lounge area with a bar. Create a bar, set up a pool table and make a home theater or just a TV area, invite your friends and have great fun together. A hot trend for such spaces is adopting the traditional pub style with exposed brick or stone walls, iron paneling and traditional lighting fixtures. You can also organize your parties here if there is enough space. This is your personal lounge area. Choosing a color palette and similar materials as in the hangout next to the baseboard ensures that it’s a large, extended area and that it feels spacious.
Combine your basement bar with a wine cellar if you want to make one. In this case, using stone, rough wood and brick is a cool idea as it improves the atmosphere and helps you keep the humidity and temperature at the required levels.
There are many styles that you can apply to your basement bar: modern, rustic, luxurious, glamorous, minimalist, etc. Here it all depends on the functions of the bar and the styles and colors you like. Remember that light colors visually expand space and reflect light, making the bar appear larger and full of lights. Contrasting combinations like black and white or dark wood with white or beige look fantastic and catch the eye. Speaking of light – pay special attention to them, make multiple layers of light to illuminate every corner and think of ambient light.
Speaking of storage space for your bar: there are many creative, space-saving cabinets and design solutions. You can turn even the smallest corner into a chic home bar: drawers, compartments, refrigerators and coolers of all shapes and sizes. It’s the ambiance, mood, lighting, and accessories that make a beautiful basement bar, not its size. Get inspired!
