Sophisticated Home Bar Design

Lower-Level Focal Point

Your lower-level space can be used for a variety of purposes. Because these spaces are separate from the rest of the home, they can be transformed to meet your specific needs. One of the main highlights of this project is a sophisticated and elegant home bar built in collaboration with MA Peterson. Originally the lower level was open but dark and carpeted. The homeowners' main goal was to define rooms and create a fun and inviting place to entertain.

Modern & Clean Light Fixture

Lighting Design

Hanging above the seating area is a graceful arrangement of light pendants. This modern and clean light fixture gives off great light without distraction. Reflecting the light to brighten the space is a unique Alaska white granite countertop.

Elegant, Eye-Catching Design

One of our favorite design aspects of this home bar is the curbed seating area. Aesthetically it is unique, but it also functions as a comfortable place to sit and have an intimate conversation with one another. In the backdrop, floor-to-ceiling custom espresso/brown stained oak cabinetry. The lovely wood grain shines through and the paneling found on the front of the cabinetry repeats in the adjacent sliding barn door. For storage, the cabinets on the countertop provide ample space and provide a framework for mirrored-backed glass display shelves. Lastly, the top row of the cabinets uses glass doors and lighting to highlight treasured golf memorabilia.

Vintage Statement Piece

Here's a closer look at the mirrored-back and glass display shelves. Inspired by vintage spigots and classic soda fountains, we used a Kohler, Artifacts® Gentleman's® faucet. Below, an attractive hammered stainless sink.

Custom Touches

This bar includes two beverage coolers - one for adult beverages, and the other for soda, water, etc. You'll also notice the foot rail that flows naturally along the base of the cabinets. Loftus Ornamental Iron fabricated the foot rail custom to follow the curvature of the cabinetry.

Ready to Enjoy!

Home bars have become increasingly popular. Besides being able to enjoy a drink in the comfort of your own home, a home bar adds a stylish and sophisticated element to a home's interior design.
