If your wish list includes a basement entertainment center with a large-screen television, a game room with a pool table, or a sleek bar that makes neighborhood parties more fun, Matrix Basement Systems can turn unused or underused space into a gathering spot your family and friends will appreciate and enjoy!

We've been helping homeowners in Chicagoland and nearby areas of Southwest Michigan and nearby Milwaukee and Detroit realize their dreams of unique finished basements since 2009. 

Basement bars are a popular feature of downstairs "playrooms," with distinctive options to expand a home's living space and cater to personalized leisure activities. Creative installations include "teenage hangouts" with soda fountains or ice cream bars, upscale wine bars that showcase favorite vintages, and cook-and-serve centers, with grills or pizza ovens to please a crowd. 

Our bar design team will work with you to ensure that your basement bar suits your personality and your purposes. Even if you have just a sliver of space, our designers can help maximize the functionality of your bar, incorporating an under-counter fridge, a serving counter, a clean-up center, and wall-mounted glassware shelving. 

Getting Started

At Matrix, we love to start with an unfinished basement and a host of possibilities. But we are also adept at remodeling and can transform a less-than-attractive basement into the type of bar that will get rave reviews. We'll work with you to decide which features best suit your family's needs, your entertaining style, and your budget. Then we'll develop a comprehensive plan, timetable, and budget to ensure that your finished space includes the materials and finishes you prefer at a price that you can accept.  

It can be challenging to transform a dark basement into a bright and happy place for family activities, but we always strive to exceed expectations and we are mindful of budget constraints. We encourage homeowners to browse design sources for innovative ideas and talk to our designers about style, function, and purpose before getting started.

Basement Bar Ideas

Basement bars come in all shapes and sizes, from the "belly up to the bar" rustic style of old western movies to sleek, roll-around bar carts that you stock with your favorite spirits. You might also dream of a "soda fountain" or even a beer tap. We'll listen to your ideas, and help you make your dreams a reality. 

The details are your choice but know that when you contract with Matrix for a basement bar installation, we will specify wall paneling, flooring, ceiling materials, and other options such as windows and safety features that are required by building codes. Our goal is to give you a finished space that promises years of trouble-free enjoyment. Our company has earned the Remodeling Big 50 designation for quality, and our customer satisfaction level is rated at 4.9 out of a possible 5 stars!

With more than 4,000 installations to our credit, we are among the nation's best at what we do, and we're proud of our record. Whether you're in the market for a winter playroom, a man cave, a neighborhood hangout, a home theater complete with a mini-kitchen and refreshment bar or mini-kitchen, or a second living space where you can kick back and be comfortable, we want to be your go-to contractor.
