6 Basement Bar Ideas For You To Get Inspired

Although many homeowners overlook this, basements are a vital part of a house. Renovated basements increase the value of a home when it is time to sell or rent it, as it attracts buyers more than a regular space would – and this, consequently, increases the return on investment a basement renovation generates.

At High Tech Reno Basements, we are experts in basement renovation. We can turn your space into anything you wish – either an extension of your home (with bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom), a gym, a wine cellar, a movie theatre, or a gaming area.

Many of our clients request us to turn their basements into bars – and so, we thought we could share some interesting ideas in this blog post, that can serve as inspiration if you are interested in turning your basement into a basement bar.

1. Nightclub Basement

Why go out when you can enjoy the party just downstairs? A nightclub basement is the perfect setting for those who want to stay in the dark listening to electronic music while sipping some drinks. 

With dark ceilings, walls, and floors, you can invest in neon lighting to create that atmosphere only a crowded disco place brings. All you have to do is insert some comfortable leather couches, chairs near the bar, and a pool table or foosball in the corner, and make the center free for the dance floor.

No longer need to deal with long lines or expensive tickets!

2. Colorful Bar

If, in contrast, you wish to make a very bright basement, invest not only in white walls and ceilings but also in colors that will steal the show. Simply add white stone marble as your bar counter and the alcohol bottles in a glass closet, and then splash some bright orange, dark purple, or vivid red to one of the walls or your chairs.

3. Minimalistic Bar

The modern and urban trend is taking over every aspect of lifestyles, designs, and decorations. People are investing in a neutral color palette everywhere – their outfits, notebooks, bags, bed sheets, carpets, chairs… and why would it be different with a basement bar?

To make this decoration work, you can invest in the colors white, black, beige, gray, and olive green. Mix them up in your walls and ceiling, and add a white or gray quartz countertop to match. At the bar, keep only the most used and necessary items on display – and you will have a modern and minimalistic look.

4. Rustic Basement Bar

Yes, a lot of wood goes into this basement bar renovation. Invest in a brick wall, add wooden doors in that European tavern style, and cover the countertop in plywood – make sure all the space matches with the decor.

You can mix and match the color and type of wood around – play with it as you wish! And do not fear adding leather to the chairs or couch either.

5. Chic and Elegant

You can turn your basement bar into a beautiful and sophisticated space by combining the right colors and decorations. With HTR Basements, you can paint your walls white, install white lamps, add round mirrors and plants in white porcelain jars against white-stone walls, invest in light gray counters, and place comfortable stuffed chairs at the bar. 

You can also add a mix of mirror and glass to a wall and turn it into a closet for all of your wine bottle collection!

6. Sports Bar Basement

If you and your friends enjoy going out to bars to watch football games or NBA tournaments or the Blue Jays playing baseball against any other baseball team that exists, turning your basement into a sports-themed bar might be a great idea.

Of course, nothing tops going to the stadium and seeing your team play live and in colors. But, sometimes, life gets in the way, and, unfortunately, it is not always that we can make it to Scotiabank arena, right? We have to turn the TV on to catch the score and root for our favourite players while drinking beer.

If that is the case with you, why not turn your basement into a sports bar?

You can reserve an entire wall to place the TV screen in, giving you and your guests a great view and a closer look at the game if compared to the living room television. The walls can be dark, and decorated with wood – and the same goes for the chairs. 

Add a dark wood and heavy countertop to the bar, with tap beer and cans behind it, place a spacious and comfortable couch in front of the TV, and fill your wooden walls with jerseys, posters, and pictures of your favourite sports teams and their players. You can serve all kinds of beer and bar snacks as well.

This way, even if you and your friends can’t make it to a game and decide it is best to meet at someone’s house – they can do so at yours by going down to your basement and still get the feeling that they are enjoying the excitement and twists and turns of a game the same way they would do so if all of you went to an actual sports bar – and no money is spent!
