To serve the family's entertaining needs, designers added a walk-up bar in the billiard area. In the corner of the space, a rustic, elegant wine rack displays refreshment choices, while a mini-fridge, sink and storage spaces make this small bar area complete and accessible.
The bar in this modern basement gives the homeowners a place to enjoy their meals together. Positioned directly behind the living area, the bar has a full view of the living area and television, so family and guest can enjoy dinner and a movie, while also enjoying the warmth from the fireplace.
Carved out of a non-functional wall space, an intimate bar and serving area was designed for a family that entertains guests. A mirror wall continues the design from behind the couch while making the space feel bigger. Two ottomans were added for extra seating; they can be tucked away under the serving table when not in use.
Light blue-and-brown geometric wallpaper decorates the small bar area in this midcentury-modern living room. Neutral curtains frame the window and complement the room's palette, while a small bar with a pair of wooden stools provides seating for two.
In the billiard area, designers created a masculine design by using a dark-neutral color palette to anchor the space. They brought in a modern pool table with traditional green felt, and they created built-in storage for the homeowners pool cues. They also added custom, built-in bookshelves to showcase the homeowner's book collection.
In this living room, a modern sectional sofa is situated in front of a large screen television to provide plenty of seating and an optimal viewing area for screenings of the family's favorite movies. Shelving and cabinets in the far corner provide a place for storage and display, while a fireplace to the left of the television warms the space. A window lets in plenty of natural light, and recessed lighting helps to give additional light to the space. To finish off the space, designers added a neutral, grid-patterned area rug to provide definition to the living space.

Just off the kitchen, designers added a small, elegant bar area from which the homeowners can easily entertain. With extra counter space and a small prep sink, this area gives the homeowners the perfect space to mix drinks or prepare hours d'oeuvres out of the sight of their guests.
