Hi, I'm working on finishing my basement and I got to a point where anxiety is setting in. The bathroom is definitely going to be bigger than I expected, which means its eating into other space, most notably the bar area. The combination of bigger bathroom, and the support pole is making for an awkward design for the bar.
Original plans had a straight bar going from the wall to the pole. The front of the bar would begin right next to the built-in shelving space. The bigger bathroom means there is less space between the bathroom wall and the shelving space. That space is 48". The plan now is to have the bar be 22" in depth and 26" of walk space behind. Just not sure that is enough. Also, the length of the bar may extend out past the pole. It is 68" from wall to pole and 30" from pole to end of bathroom wall. The pole could end up being right in middle of the bar.
Do you think the total depth of 22" is enough? Is 26" of walk space enough?
I'd love to hear other design ideas. I wanted to keep the bar where it is, as opposed to in front of the shelving, because I wanted to use that floor space for a poker table.http://picasaweb.google.com/JAMDLP79...30549040666914
