Small Basement Bar Ideas

The wet Bar Tops are not like the kitchen countertops. It is not used every day and it does not need a large countertop. Preparation and storage have no priority. Therefore, just for short-term pleasure, you can pick any of the materials matching your design and decoration. A hint would be inspired by your basement remodeling project: The bar tops are usually one long piece with a small sink and they show the beauty of the material better than the kitchen countertop. Some even do not need a sink as well.
Wet Bar Top Materials 
Wood bar top: Teak bar top, hickory bar top, and butcher blocks bar top are good options. 
Stainless Steel bar top: Brushed stainless steel bar top and semi-matte stainless steel bar top appeal to most design ideas. 
Concrete bar top: Thick concrete bar top  if it is colored, even better 
Epoxy bar top: Put any color on it and make a unique abstract 
Tempered glass bar top: Colored tempered glass bar top or tinted tempered glass bar top are  for your taste 
Ceramic tile bar top: Give a little nostalgia -Milan Kundera Style-, for having the 80’s fashion
Natural Stone bar top: Slate bar tops, granite bar top stick to classic modern styles. 
Engineered stone bar top: Cambria bar topCorian Bartop, Quartz bar top are the trendy styles

Basement Bar Design Elements

Just like Wet Bar top ideas, Wet Bar Backsplash Ideas focus on your imagination and creativity. 
Wood backsplash: Driftwoods, wood planks, batten wall panels follow the trend
Mirror backsplash: This is a very convenient backsplash idea for the basement wet bar. The space is always shown double and the fashion never gets old. 
Natural brick backsplash or slate backsplash or using the existing brick wall of the basement: Never turn out wrong. 
Stainless Steel Backsplash: Easy to clean and nice-looking 
Glass Backsplash: Just like mirror backsplash the eternal fashion is at the service.  
Chalkboard   Backsplash: Think about the younger generation! Kids love to draw while they eat facing the wall.  
Ceramic Subway Tile Backsplash: The wide range of possibilities for your design ideas.  
Travertine Backsplash:  A classical touch for the rustic wet bar design ideas. 
Granite Backsplash: Can be used as a full high backsplash for any modern and ultra-modern look. 
Quartz Backsplash: Can be used as a full high backsplash for any futuristic and contemporary look. 

Basement Wet Bar Lighting Design Ideas

Any basement even if it is a walk-in basement needs more lighting than the other rooms of the house. The tricks are endless but some basics would shine your day…If glass backsplash or mirrored backsplash will be part of the project, there is no doubt that you will double the lighting options. Hope the basement wet bar lighting design ideas satisfy your hunger. 
Lightbox above your basement wet bar: It is a great option for larger area lighting ideas. 
Recess lighting for basement wet bar: I usually go for the 6 inches recessed lighting per 70 square feet for the basement with no windows. 
Inside cabinet lights for basement wet bar: These can be led lights or mini-sized recessed lighting. 
Under-cabinet lights for basement wet bar: Love these led lights, always participate in my projects 
Pendant lights for basement wet bar: Pendant lights also follow the same rule as recessed lighting layout. If your countertop is 140 sqft, two pendant lights will perfectly provide enough lighting. 
Under wet bar lights: This is a cool effect if the counter height chairs are in charge, the dark spots are no longer scary to anyone.
