5 Ways to Make Your Basement Feel like an English Pub

Walk out luxury basement remodel with built-in bar area

Searching for a way to remodel your Cincinnati basement into an entertaining escape? We’re currently constructing a Pierce Township basement remodel for homeowners looking for an English pub feel. Interested in crafting your own basement hotspot? Here are some ideas: 

#1. Craft a Fabulous Bar

First things first: you’ll need a bar. But not just any bar will do — for that English pub feel, you’ll need extra details and texture like these stone pillars and wall accents. The dark-stained wood will give a rich, stately feel, and under-shelf lighting will be eye-catching and inviting. 

#2. Add an Entertainment Area

English pubs are more than just bars — they are hubs for entertainment. This basement has its own theater room, complete with custom seating and a drop-down screen to project movies.  

#3. Wood Ceilings

We included classic English pub details like wood beams across the ceiling by the bar and a wood-accented tray ceiling in the theater room. These wood accents bring warmth and visual interest into the basement. 

#4. Dark Wall Accents 

Wainscotting is the perfect way to add the texture and dark accents English pubs are known for. The custom wainscotting in this basement perfectly complements the dark wood on the bar and wood accents on the ceilings. 

#5. Hidden Gems

Every basement needs a storage area, but boxes of belongings really disturb the fun, pub-like atmosphere. We solved that problem by allowing unfinished storage space accessed through a hidden door.
