If you’re considering finishing your basement, here’s a list of ways to utilize your new space:
Five Ways To Remodel Your Basement
Finishing a basement can be fun – you’ll get an entirely new room (or rooms) to spend time in. But what type of space should you consider creating?
Do you enjoy working out and staying fit? Are you tired of commuting to the and then dealing with inconsiderate people at the gym? A home gym in the basement could be just want you need!
Consider installing several types of flooring – wooden floors if you enjoy yoga, rubber mats in areas that heavy weights could fall, and even carpeting for times when you just want a soft space to stretch. If you’re into dance or just like to make sure you are in the correct form, install a wall of mirrors to not only help you keep an eye on your posture but to make the space feel larger.
Want to take things to the next level? Install an at home sauna!
With more streaming options than ever before, a home theater may be a great way to enjoy your favorite shows and movies. Basement theaters are great – it’s often a darker space, resulting in a better viewing experience.
Building an elevated platform so that multiple rows of couches or recliners is a neat way to provide extra viewing space. Consider installing a kitchenette so that popcorn and other treats can be made without sacrificing viewing time.
Do you love wine? Are you constantly struggling to find space to store the latest bottle? Create a space that is designed to both show off your collection and provide a comfortable tasting area.
A wine cellar takes careful planning but with the proper insulation and air system, in addition to wine racks, your basement will soon be the go to place for your friends.
Create A Playroom For Your Kids
If you’re tired of stepping on your kids toys in the family room, consider making a basement their play area.
Use chalkboard paint on the walls to give them a place they can doodle without making too much of a mess. Create built in storage for all of their many toys. If your child loves to read – make them a cozy nook where they can enjoy their book.
In-Law Suite Or Apartment
Creating a second, separate living area can be helpful if you have a family member who has recently moved in with you. Or, if you are looking for a way to make a little bit of extra money, consider renting out the space through a platform like AirBNB.
