Basement Wet Bar Designs

Posted on: August 31, 2016

wet bar ideas and design

Basement design can present some unique challenges for homeowners. After all, many view the space as little more than a dark, gloomy storage area for old boxes and holiday glitz. But to the team at Jack Rosen, this is a total waste of what could very well be one of the most gorgeous and well-received areas of your home.

One of the main issues homeowners have with their basement is that they have flooding when it rains and they think this means they can’t do anything with it. They couldn’t be more wrong! They simply need to get a basement waterproofing contractor then they can do anything in their basement without having to worry about damp. They can finally make a most of the wasted space.

But how does one take such a large, unused space and turn it into something wonderful? We have some ideas! The true hidden glory of basement space is that it is totally removed from the general rules of your home. There’s no pressure to match your basement space to, say, your living room, as a kitchen might. With this free reign, you can do anything. Game rooms, lounges, personal getaways; the options are absolutely endless. And what goes well with all of these? A custom wet bar cabinet, of course.

What Are Basement Wet Bars?

Picture 082

Wet bars were immensely popular in years past, and were a common feature of many, many United States homes. But for a time that popularity waned, as homeowners began to look for other new ideas. But now in modern times, basement wet bars have made a massive comeback.

These are bar-style cabinets that feature space for a sink (the “wet” element of the name) to quickly rinse drinking glasses or mix cocktails.

Wet Bar Designs and Ideas

  • Understated basement wet bars. Sometimes you may simply want the function of a wet bar, but don’t want it to interfere with the overall visuals and design of your finished basement space. Easily done with custom cabinetry solutions! Your wet bar can seamlessly blend in with its surroundings, providing excellent uses without drowning out your overall design.
  • Centerpiece basement wet bars. Full-scale custom wood cabinets, featuring stylish metal accents and marble countertops. The lighting, design, and appeal of a high-class luxurious bar or jazz club, right in your own home. Many homeowners choose to make wet bars the defining feature of a finished basement space. And the end result is simply gorgeous. Play with stone, wood, metal; make the materials come to life and transform into a wet bar you can adore.
  • “Dinette” wet bars. Finished basements are often used as additional bedrooms, rental space, or guest bedrooms. A wet bar designed around the idea of a dinette can add a lot of function, and look quite fetching while doing it.
  • Modern-style wet bars. Make use of cool, clean metal cabinets and countertops for a smart-looking wet bar that can meet and mesh with the overall design of any basement space. These are some of the most-often used designs today, as they are particularly fetching, while also staying quite durable and easy to maintain.
