8 Basements Worthy of Entertaining for the Big Game

In celebration of the upcoming AFC Championship game this weekend, we’re reviewing 8 basements ideal for hosting a football party! From wet bars, game rooms to media areas, these basements are sure to be a crowd-pleaser despite the outcome of the big game!

Basement Bars: 


Inspired by the homeowners’ favorite beach bar, this space is the perfect spot to kick back, crack open a beer and get the party started! The wooden Chicago style bar edge, chrome foot ledge, and clever blend of backsplash tile help set this bar apart to create the ultimate party zone!



This cozy wine bar offers front row seats for a perfect view of the big game. Rustic cabinets, a cork backsplash and comfy bar stools has a way of keeping your guests calm and relaxed while watching the game.



For all you party animals out there, this is the perfect set-up for you. Add a contemporary bar to your basement to get the feeling of celebrating your team’s victorious win at your favorite downtown lounge without ever leaving your home.

Media Rooms: 


If you have the space, deck out your basement with cozy seating for the ultimate viewing experience. For those moments when the crowd is jumping out of their seats in excitement over a touchdown, consider adding luxury vinyl flooring to easily pick up beer and chicken wing spills.


Sports media room

To create a warm and sophisticated ambiance, add wainscoting to the perimeter of your media room. With a large built-in screen like this, there’s no way you will ever miss an important play.



Framing in your television with trim pieces and paint is a great way to add a bold look to your media area without breaking the bank. This stylish media area includes concealed storage space for bulky cable boxes, wires and speakers. Open floating shelves help feature your favorite sports memorabilia.
