Looking to redesign your basement space? Renovating your basement provides you with more usable space that fits your needs! They are so easily customizable, so you may be inundated with lots of ideas.
When you’re looking at finishing your basement, it’s important to think about what type of space you would get the most use out of. Do you enjoy hosting? Perhaps adding a basement bar is the way to go. Do you have kids? Perhaps they could benefit from a playroom that can easily convert to a guest room as they age.
The key is to consider what your household would get the most value out of, and design from there! Basement remodels can be a lot of fun because you can create a space you thoroughly enjoy.
So, let’s take a look at some of the most creative choices when remodeling your basement.
We realize laundry isn’t everyone’s favorite. However, it still has to get done! Creating an organized, clean space to do your laundry can make it just that much more enjoyable. So, why not invest in a room you have to spend time in?
Give your kids a space to play and create in! From a remodeling standpoint, you wouldn’t need much besides finished walls and some flooring, whether it’s carpet for comfort or hardwood for easy cleaning. But you could also add some built-in storage solutions like cubbies to keep things neat and an egress window not only for safety and natural light but also to easily convert the room into a guest room as your kid’s age.
Who said the kids are the only ones who can play? Create a space for your whole family to enjoy. Create an open space for ping-pong, foosball, or a poker table.
Add an apartment suite to your basement to make the downstairs just that much more livable! Put in a kitchenette with some essential appliances, a small couch for lounging, just outside of the bedroom and bathroom. Nowadays, renting out your basement apartment is really popular on sites like Airbnb. Or, leave it as space your college kids can stay when visiting.
Keep the party going downstairs with the addition of a wet bar! Not only is adding a bar a great way to entertain guests, but it also allows for additional storage (hello, clunky kitchen appliances!) It also allows for additional seating when you add an island or bar top.
Bring the theater experience home! Hang a projector and screen, add dimmable can lighting, and even multiple seating levels for easy viewing. A home theater is great for basement rooms without windows because it creates that dark space ideal for movies.
Tight on storage space? Most homes are! Utilize your basement space, like under the stairs, for example, to create more storage in your home. Adding stylish cabinets can give it a finished, perhaps even hidden feeling.
Adding a home gym could be as simple as tiling the floor and hanging some mirrors! But, depending on your style, you could add a speaker system, hang a television, or even do a padded floor for yoga or stretching.
