Trends in Basement Wet Bar Remodeling

As the chilly fall temperatures start to roll in, it’s time to make the dreaded transition from outdoor to indoor entertainment. Whether it’s a smaller free-standing unit tucked in a prominent empty corner or a larger restaurant-grade bar, the lower level wet bar is a definite crowd pleaser for your next football party, holiday gathering or social get-togethers. Here is a review of local Indianapolis basement bar remodels. Could you see one of these bars in your home?

Bar stool seating offers a great view of the television with plenty of countertop space to munch on tasty game time appetizers. The beverage fridge means that a cold beer or soda is always within arms reach while glass front cabinetry allows plenty of storage for your glassware and favorite liquor bottles.

Glass front cabinetry and the glass tile backsplash gives the wet bar a sophisticated grown-up look. Elevated racking not only adds visual interest, but keeps unopened wine bottles out of hands reach. A locked base liquor cabinet offers parents peace of mind while the beverage fridge stocked with sodas, juices and waters is perfect for the kiddos of the house. The large island offers plentiful seating for family game nights, adult wine tastings or poker nights.

The wine fridge keeps your favorite white wines and pinot noirs at the optimal temperature. Dark cabinetry provides plenty of storage for board games, glassware, etc. The warm colors of the “Copper Rust” slate tile backsplash adds to the cozy factor of this built-in bar.

The rich colors of the glass tile backsplash, granite countertops and cabinetry gives the area an elegant look that is sure to impress. The french-door refrigerator, convection microwave oven, and beer tap offers convenience for weekend guests or quick access to snacks during family movie nights.

The distressed black cabinets, rustic “Chadwick” mini pendants in an oil bronze finish and custom-made cork backsplash adds to the winery look and feel of this basement bar.

Open shelving allows for an easy reach to pilsner glasses and a quick fill of your favorite brew from the stainless steel beer tap. This highly accessible set up is perfect for your dinner guests to help themselves without hiking back and forth from the garage to grab their next drink.
