Just finished your basement? Want it converted to a game room? Nothing says game room decor better than a wet bar. Just the way a kitchen is center of attention during dining, same way a wet bar is during parties.

With the resurgence of indoor games like pool and poker people want more varieties in their game rooms. You can make a game room such that one end is the bar where people drink game free and the other end people play drink free! The bar being the connection between the two people.

A few game room ideas 

Use the ideas of what you’d normally like to do in a bar to design it and make you out to be a wonderful host. That means that by incorporating a wet bar in your layout of the game room you can serve drinks to your friends and enhance décor and theme in your space. Careful planning is crucial for an attractive functional area.

First determine whether your pocket and plumbing allow for it since “wet” in wet bar means typically a sink, fridge and icemaker and ultimately electrical outlets. Next is to decide on a theme such as sports team and this will affect your accessories and décor.

This is also where you plan cabinet design and counter design. A carpenter can give you varied designs if you need it, but the most popular counter finishes are tile, copper, stainless steel, et cetera. Don’t forget that premade cabinets can also be bought in stores.

Secondly, you’ll select your seating design and bar furniture. Swivel or bar stool design is the best but with padded backs .thirdly install good game room lighting , especially if your basement is dark. Pendant lights, recessed lights and track lights are good examples of versatile lighting. Led strings are also good below the cabinets or on shelves.

You should make sure to display the entire bar equipment as they are part of the overall feel of the game room!!
