Many of us have basements at home and this space should not be forgotten when decorating your home. It can be transformed into a poolside retreat, a second living area, your personal home office, another bathroom, a guest room or a bar. A basement bar is one of the coolest ideas that you can come up with because you take advantage of your basement space and get an amazing relaxation area.
If you have a large basement, consider setting up a man’s cave or lounge area with a bar there. Create a bar, set up a pool table and do a home theater or just a TV area, invite your friends and have great fun together. A hot trend for such spaces is to adopt the traditional pub style with exposed brick or stone walls, iron trim, 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 materials similar to the hangout next to the basement bar will ensure that it is a large, extended area and make it feel spacious.
Combine your basement bar with a wine cellar if you want to make one. In this case, using stone, rough wood, and bricks is a cool idea as it will improve the atmosphere and help you keep the humidity and temperature at a required level.
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 the room and reflect light, making the bar look bigger and full of lights. Contrasting combinations such as 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 about 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, fridges and coolers of all sizes and shapes. It is the ambience, the mood, the lighting and the accessories that make a beautiful cellar bar and not its size. Get inspired!
