Stocked Bar with LED Backlighting Display

Basement Corner Space
If you own a basement then you know how quickly it can become another storage room. Instead of having your basement be your storage space, consider having a basement corner bar.

Selecting lively neutral colors such as white, beige or pastel gray help brighten up the space.
Custom Built-In Wet Bar

This idea works great when you have a corner or space in the kitchen that is not being utilized. Instead of creating another counter space, consider adding a custom built-in wet bar that doubles up as your entertainment space.
