It is every man’s dream to have an at home bar; A fun addition to a renovated space, providing a great area for entertaining family and friends.

With the growing popularity of the “Man Cave” and at home basement bars, we decided to fill you in on some design secrets on how to add a bar to your finished basement or “Man Cave”.

First off, some may be asking what exactly is a man cave?  Well, Urban Dictionary defines a man cave as the following:

“A room, space, corner or area of a dwelling that is specifically reserved for a male person to be in a solitary condition, away from the rest of the household in order to work, play, involve himself in certain hobbies, activities without interruption. This area is usually decorated by the male that uses it without interference from any female influence.”

So in turn, this post is for the men.  No women allowed here.

Back to the design of your very own bar. Just like any other room in your house, your man cave bar design should reflect your personal style. Most men will say their style is sports (is that even a style?), but there are also those who enjoy the finer things in life. If your taste is elegant and classic, you may want to consider dark, rich woods with a marble countertop. Throw in some sophisticated leather stools to take it one step further. This type of bar can be accented with rich paint colors like red, deep purple, or ivory. Bar shelves should include a multitude of cocktail glasses and top shelf liquor.

Men who identify "sports" as their style, will most likely have a drastically different idea of an at home bar. A wet bar within a game room is a typical choice for many homes. Include a pool table, a place to play card games, and a ping pong table to put the games in your gaming room. Add a 60” flat screen and your favorite sports team memorabilia to create a space for everyone to come and watch the big game.

Now with all this manly awesomeness around, you are going to need something to help your bar really shine.  For this, we give you the Bar Marquee Letter Light Sign. Nothing is better than this rustic masculine script bar sign for setting the mood with a lighting design that gives your at home bar the extra light it deserves.
