Basement Bar

Turn Your Basement into a Pub

If you’re looking to do something different than the usual ideas of storage room, bedroom, or indoor gaming room for your basement – THEN – How about a pub? Now, this is something you won’t find in a regular Edmonton home.

A pub setting can be an awesome place to host a gathering, unwind after a tiring day, or watch your favorite game.

So, how do you turn your dreary basement into a fantastic pub?

Build the Right Ambiance

Building a basement bar is not just about having a bar table. The right surroundings create the right atmosphere, and that’s one of the most critical aspects of your pub. A mistake easily made is to mix styles; for example having a modern basement decor go with a classic dark stained bar table.

What’s the paint color of the basement? Pick a colour that goes with the mood you are trying to set.

Choose furniture that also suits your theme. There are many affordable options to help you create an inviting atmosphere without breaking the bank.

The biggest element of your basement pub is going to be the bar table. Once you’ve selected your bar table, modify and change your basement to make sure it completely matches the table.

Set it in a Good Spot

A basement can have limited space due to the duct work, the plumbing pipes and boiler system there. Hence, you may have a lot to work around. The ducts, the pipes and the boiler system can limit the space you have in your basement. Your basement pub should be constructed in a manner that the pipes and ducts don’t obtrusively standout.

Pick a good location to place your bar table and chairs. Each basement has its own layout. If you want the focal point to be the bar, then the center of the room might be a good spot. But if you would like to add a pool table, then you may be better off putting the bar table in a corner.

Shine on with Effective Lighting

Lighting sets the mood for your bar. Period. There are many other affordable options than traditional tube lights and bulbs. Pot lights or track lights are good options. A billiard light is also something to consider if you are planning on having a pool table.

When it comes to picking a lighting fixture, you need to pick according to the decor you’ve set. There are an innumerable number of options to pick from!

Step on the Floor

What are you going to do with the basement pub? If you’re going to be dancing on it with your friends, then the right basement floor is a must.

You can choose from:

  • Tile: Ceramic, porcelain or natural stone could suit your basement

  • Engineered Hardwood: A wide range of options that fit your budget
  • Laminate: Synthetic flooring can be made to suit your basement pub decor
  • Vinyl Plank: A modern option

There you have it. These are just some of the many things you need to keep in mind when building your basement pub.
