Lounge and Entertain In Your Own Basement

If your basement still looks like an eerie place where cults will gather in the middle of the night, then someone should slap some sense into you because you are just wasting precious space. Instead of letting the rats enjoy the area, you should turn it into a bar where you and your friends can just sit around, chat, and drink to your heart’s content.

1. Ambient Lighting: Bars are associated with dim lighting because it creates the sense of intimacy as well as privacy. To recreate this feeling, dim your light to the right notch, but make sure that you are still comfortable enough to recognize everyone, and see what is happening inside your basement.

2. Use the Right Decoration: Have you ever seen a flower, or fountain inside a guys bar? If not, then follow from this example. Use the ample decoration such as barrels, pictures, and the like. Use your imagination, or ask the opinion of your friends to see what they want to see inside the bar.

3. Set up an island or counter: Even if you are not going to ask your friends and relatives for payment after you serve that beverage, it is still important to have an island or counter inside the bar. Doing so will really make your place feel and look like a genuine bar.

4. Entertainment for everyone: A nice chat is inevitable inside the bar, but after a while people may get bored. Get a big television and mount it somewhere high where all your guests will be able to view it. You can also get speakers for music, billiards, and darts to keep everyone well entertained.

Instead of going around town looking for the hippest place to socialize, why not create your own area and set up a bar? You do not have to pay an entrance fee, you have the whole place to yourself, you can eat and drink whatever you please, do whatever you want, and you will only invite the ones that you are comfortable with. What is not to like? Go ahead and start the renovation now.
