The Basement Bar is an untapped diamond mine in most homes. The spaces that can be created in this secluded subterranean room can add comfort, refuge and great entertainment. The basement of your home is often a place to hang out, play ping pong or build a bar. Home bars make entertaining fun, and if your basement already has a TV or entertainment center, the bar will add a place to serve drinks and relax.
Whether you want to entertain your friends while watching the game, escaping to your own bar may be just the right solution. You do not need to go far to find the perfect place for your bar. The Basement Bar is often the most underutilized space in a home, and the perfect place to build a bar with minimum remodeling.
As with any home improvement project, it is important to set a budget. Maybe you want a wet Basement Bar that makes even a professional bartender envious, or maybe you want to keep the project simple so you’ll have more money left over to stock your bar. You should determine what kind of bar you want, and then do a little research on how much it will cost you.
Measure the basement and make a drawing. Layout where you want your bar and where you want furniture. Typically, you will locate your bar against one of the shorter walls in the basement and reserve the longer walls for seating and circulation areas.
Every bar should have a theme. Whether you choose your favorite sports team, a fishing theme, or even a 1920s speakeasy theme, decorating your bar area makes your basement bar more inviting. You can add custom lighting, posters and other memorabilia. However, do not forget the most important accessory: seating. Whether you choose to use standard bar stools or lounge chairs, make sure to have comfortable seating for maximum enjoyment of your basement bar.
