The style of your basement bar can be customized to match your home’s decor, and also your own personal sense of style. A qualified design professional can help you to design your basement bar and ensure a quality build.
Your bar’s cabinets stand out the most, and will be the main focus of the room. Therefore, they should be carefully selected and designed. For a sleek, modern look, black cabinets with a gloss finish may cultivate the design you’re after. Wood finishing lends itself to an Irish pub or rustic look, particularly darker woods. The fixtures also substantially influence your cabinets’ look.
There are many available bar top options for your finished basement bar. A granite top creates a look that is contemporary yet classic. A wooden top lends a more rustic style, and is perfect for a pub look. For a sleek, modern style, a glass top may be best.
Ideally, you will want to have a sink and preferably dish washer built into your bar. This makes things more convenient, and creates a more polished look. However, any mistakes in new plumbing can be very costly, so this may be best left toe the experts.
You will need a refrigerator and/or wine cooler to keep beverages chilled. If you plan to serve beer frequently, you can purchase or build a kegerator, which chills and dispenses a keg of beer. A dishwasher also makes things more convenient, as it’s easier wash bar wear on site rather than toting it upstairs to be washed.
A basement bar makes entertaining easier and more enjoyable, and makes your home more appealing to potential buyers when it’s time to sell. With the help of a qualified professional, you can create the perfect centerpiece for your finished basement.
