Basement Bar Backsplash Ideas
One of our favorite winter home remodeling ideas for 2021 is creating the perfect home bar.
The silver lining to being stuck at home for the next few months is that there is plenty of time to get your home in great shape for future gatherings and parties. Having something to look forward to in 2021 - while also adding value to your home - makes the home bar an ideal home improvement project for the winter.
Whether you choose to upgrade an existing basement bar or install a brand new wet bar or dry bar elsewhere in your home, one of the key design elements you will need to decide on is the best bar backsplash to complement your man cave or other entertaining space.
Retro Home Bar with Antique Mirror Backsplash
One of our customers recently completed a stylish basement bar remodel using our beveled distressed antique mirror subway tile. The combination of distressed mirror glass with dark cabinets and a polished brass beer tap gives this basement bar a retro look, making it a great bar backsplash choice for a vintage man cave with old-school tavern style. This is the type of home bar you could picture Sinatra drinking in back in the day. This was a groutless tile installation which provides a clean look but might not last as long as tile installed with light grout lines.
Classic Home Bar with White Marble Mini Brick Backsplash
One of our favorite wet bar backsplash ideas for 2021 is white marble mini subway tile. Another DIY project recently completed by one of our customers was this handsome wet bar with a Carrara Venato marble mini brick backsplash. The elegant white marble with soft gray veining gives this home bar a timeless and sophisticated look, making it a classy choice for entertaining anyone from your neighbors to your boss.
Contemporary Home Bar with Long Herringbone Backsplash
For a dry bar on the main level of your home, you may want to consider a long herringbone tile backsplash like the one Dallas blogger Trisha Le recently chose for her first home. Trisha Le’s stunning kitchen dry bar features a blue LED under counter wine cooler, white cabinets with long brass cabinet pulls and our 1”x6” long herringbone tile in Carrara Venato marble.

Herringbone is a classic mosaic tile pattern that is always an attractive, universally appealing backsplash choice. Selecting a thinner, longer chip size such as 1 x 6 inches for your herringbone bar backsplash is a great way to add an updated, contemporary look to your kitchen or living room bar area.

Black Home Bar
Luxury home bars need a backsplash that stands out. This striking, Art Deco-inspired black and gold waterjet mosaic tile pairs well with black bar cabinets or any home bar design that requires a black backsplash or gold accent.
Blue Home Bar
A home bar with light or dark blue cabinets would likely require either a white bar backsplash or a backsplash featuring some blue accents. Some backsplash options to consider for a home bar with blue cabinets include a standard white glass subway tile or Carrara marble mosaic tile in 2” squares.
For a bar backsplash with notes of blue, consider a blue quartzite and glass strip mosaic tile.
Green Home Bar
For a home bar with green cabinets, you may also want to consider a standard white bar backsplash like this White Thassos marble 2” hexagons mosaic tile:
Gray Home Bar or White Home Bar
A home bar with neutral gray or white cabinets will allow you to let your creativity shine when selecting a bar backsplash.
