Don’t know what to do with that unfinished, ugly, or outdated basement? Turn it into the bonus living and entertaining space you’ve always wanted!
Turning a basement into a bar and recreation center will reclaim that unused space in your home and create a space that is optimal for entertaining. A recreation center becomes a private and safe place to entertain family and friends, whether you prefer more elegant, elaborate parties or casual, family gatherings. And if you are unsure of how long you will be in your home, keep in mind that adding a bar and entertainment space can add value to your home and can be a major selling point for prospective buyers.
For the bar area, a sink and plumbing will go a long way, as the wet bar makes it convenient for disposal of liquids and washing of glasses and countertops. Products such as an ice maker, beverage cooler, water chiller, and water filter will add sophistication and ease to entertaining. Turn the basement into a true recreation center by adding billiards, a ping pong table, an area to play cards and board games, and audio-visual elements to enhance sports game viewing or video gaming. Comfortable seating at the bar and lounge chairs throughout the space will create an inviting atmosphere that you, your family, and guests will want to enjoy and never leave.
So if you don’t know what to do with your existing basement, whether it is finished or unfinished, revamp it by turning it into an entertaining space that will make you and your home the talk of the neighborhood.
