Considering how amazing an underground space can be for a variety of reasons, the basement tends to be one of the most underrated and underappreciated parts of the house. Typically, homeowners use their basement for the storage, for doing laundry, and other less glamorous purposes. In some cases, the basement isn’t used at all.

One of the best ways to transform your basement into a more functional space is by remodeling it into a basement bar. While grabbing a few drinks in your local bar is a great way to unwind after a long exhausting week, there are times when you just don’t feel like going out. If you love to socialize, a basement bar is an amazing addition to add to your home.

For over a decade, Matrix Basement Systems has provided top-quality basement remodeling services for homeowners in Michigan. One of the biggest trends we’ve seen in the last decade has been basement bar renovations, where homeowners transform their dark and dingy basements into dazzling, creative bar areas for entertaining guests at home. In this article, find out more about this amazing renovation idea—and how you can personalize a basement bar to suit your own personal style.

Classy Wine Storage and Bar

One of the most sophisticated basement bar ideas we’ve seen is the wine bar and bottle storage area. To complete this classy transformation, you might want to consider getting a dark wood bar with a granite or marble countertop. For the couch and bar stools, opt for the leather ones.

With the proper lighting, you can set the mood of your basement bar to suit your style goals. It is recommended to install lighting that gives off a soft glow for a more modern and sophisticated look. As for the paint, choose colors that can accentuate the bar’s design in relation to fine wine—such as red, deep purple, ivory, and onyx. Finally, you can complete the wine bar look and feel by lining your shelves with wine glasses, wine, and spirits.

Entertainment Room

Another cool idea for your basement bar is to include a game room in your basement bar. Depending on your preferences, you can buy a pool table, poker table, beer pong table, or an air hockey table. For gamers, you can buy your favorite retro or modern arcade games and set them up in your bar.

If you are aiming for this look, you can be more playful with the colors of your lighting and paint. Also, you can get posters or wall decors related to your favorite games.

Your Very Own Sports Bar

If you’re into sports, there’s no better way to enjoy your basement than by turning it into a sports bar. A pool table and dartboard can also be applicable for a sports-themed bar, but the center of attention should be the lounge and television area.

This lounge area is where you can set up a flat screen TV, comfortable couches, and decorative memorabilia from your favorite sports teams and players.
Old Fashioned Pub

If you’re into beer, you might love the idea of turning your basement into your very own Cheers-style bar or pub. With retro paintings on the walls, an old neon sign that says Open, bar stools, and wood accents throughout, you can turn your own basement into a place where everyone will know each other’s names.
