Here are a bunch of bright and clever ideas to make your basement bar shine and become one of the favorite hangout spots in your home.
This is an actual sold product, but it would be easy to DIY for your basement bar if you like the look. Simply sand and stain a 1×6 pine board, add a customized message and/or map, and mount a bottle opener on the board. It’s simple but useful…and clever, too
White subway tile adds distinct style to a basement bar, and the colorful bottles are really all the “pops” of color needed here. We love the industrial feel of the bar chairs with the warm wood bar itself.
In this well-strategized bar design, custom pullouts were created so the drawers would hold bottles upright. Adjustable dividers keep the bottles from tipping. Smart use of space!
Any kind of funky, quirky, or unique features that you can tastefully incorporate into your basement bar space will go a long way in creating a bright, cheerful mood. This booth-style seating, for example, adds a friendly and unique flair to even this dark basement bar
If your basement lacks the space for a full-sized bar, you can still enjoy the perks of a bar space in your basement with some creative planning. This dark-stained plank countertop over simple cabinetry adds a luxurious bar feel to this corner space
There are many ways to incorporate undermount lighting into a basement bar space – from the very complex to the very simple. You could hardwire the lighting in, or you could install simple sticky lighting, or many options in between. However you do it, the result is a brighter bar area
A long cabinet and open shelves are reminiscent of a kitchen more than a basement bar space, but this one looks cozy and inviting. Chalkboard paint on the back wall cleverly adds a personal touch
Lit up arcade games are certainly eye-catching, so it would be a fun and clever twist to your basement bar to keep the arcade fairly close. All the fun in one power-packed visual!
Most basements are, well, basements – that is, they exist underground and tend to be a bit short on natural light. A clever way to play up your basement bar design is to capitalize on this cave-like feeling – rustic touches, exposed (painted) brick, and plenty of raw wood makes for an ultra-cool basement bar.
