Having a basement bar is one of the most enjoyable ways you can utilize your basement space. Not only can the basement bar become a haven in your home where you unwind and relax, it can also be the perfect space for entertaining friends and family. How you design your basement determines how you experience the room. Think about ways to inject your personality and style into the room to make it truly yours. Many homeowners choose to pair a basement bar with a game room or entertainment room which greatly enhances that space. We’ve put together some impressive basement bar ideas to allow you to have the most enjoyment out of your basement bar.

Stone Accents

Stone is regal, timeless, and elegant. For years, it has been used for outdoor spaces and now homeowners are beginning to see just how marvelous stone is as an indoor material. Stone has such a versatile application and can take your basement from ordinary to extraordinary.

Once thought of as a material too heavy for interior use, stone can be modified to fit perfectly in indoor spaces. Consider interior stone accent walls to add charm to your basement bar and make the walls stand out. Stone can complement any style and will give the space a modern yet rustic feel.

Contemporary Wine Cellar

Are you an enthusiastic wine connoisseur? Having a wine cellar in your home allows you to store wines conveniently and in bulk. There’s nothing quite like a perfect wine cellar to store all of your favourite wine products.

Set aside a section in your basement bar to set up your wine racks. Consider using glass, stone, or wood as a material and choose a floor-to-ceiling storage design, a cable wine system, or other storage options.

Sleek and Modern

Having a modern and contemporary basement bar is all about combining the right materials and colours that bring the space to life.

Think about pairing some rectangular tiles with granite countertops to achieve an enviable modern theme and use accent textures and colours to add to the overall look.

Game Room Plus Home Bar

It goes without saying that you need some entertaining activities to complement your basement bar. A game room offers a perfect pairing worth considering. Think about adding some neat accessories like a pool table or create a gaming station to create a room no one wants to leave.

Go all out by adding some arcade games as well and choose lighting options that create the right aura in your basement.

Home Theatre With Bar

Another great basement idea to consider adding to your basement bar is a home theater. This is one of the most popular basement combos. You can create a home theater in a basement of any size by getting creative with your design choice.

The key is to design a space suitable for watching movies and incorporating ideal lighting options. Also, think about adding a high-quality sound system with a full surround sound effect.

    Kitchens are complex renovation projects and often require a significant investment. Needless to say, a successful custom kitchen renovation adds tremendous value to your Ottawa home. Based on our experience installing kitchens in Ottawa, your preparation work, which would include walls, flooring, electrical, and some plumbing for an average size kitchen start from about $10,000. Your kitchen cabinets for an average size kitchen usually would start from about the same amount of $10,000. There are exceptions to this. We have installed many kitchens in basement apartments that cost less. The best thing is to reach out to us to discuss your project in detail. Below you will see some before and after pictures of kitchen renovations. We have also provided short descriptions of what was done and rough costs of the projects.

    To ensure the ease of the process for you and us, we remove the stress of all the supporting materials selection and simply leave it up to you to choose your finish materials. Even with that, help is available if you need to choose the right style of the cabinets or the functionality that will meet your needs. We can help you design your kitchen cabinets, or you can use one of many kitchen companies that will design and sell the kitchen cabinets to you. Perhaps you have already designed and purchased the cabinets and installation of them, such as the Ikea kitchen cabinet, and simply need to prepare the space for your new kitchen. We offer complete and partial kitchen renovation services, where you can have us handle the entire project, or we can do a partial preparation for your kitchen and a kitchen manufacturer will come in to install kitchen cabinets.

    At Miracle Dream Homes (MDH), we have been renovating, remodeling, and redesigning bathrooms and kitchens, and finishing basements in the Ottawa area since 2004. Our experience ranges from updating older homes to restyling newer ones, renovating for aging-in-place requirements, expanding smaller spaces for greater convenience and comfort, personalizing home designs and layouts, and much more. Our customers across the Ottawa area count on our skilled crews and the experience of our team to complete their home renovation projects on time and on budget.

    Save On Your Renovation

    It takes about 10,000 hours of practice to master a skill. Tradespersons such as plumbers and electricians, when going through an apprenticeship program, take at least 5 years or 8,280 hours before they are fully ready to start working on their own. DIY enthusiasts often feel excited about projects such as bathroom renovations, kitchen remodels and basement renovations. Of course, it is exciting to think of a home makeover! However, it’s important to know that whether you renovate your bathroom, basement or kitchen, getting professional help will not only save you time but potentially thousands of dollars.
