Your basement has a ton of potential, even if you can’t yet see past all the clutter. In fact, the basement is often the most neglected room in the house. As a homeowner, you should see your basement as a blank canvas waiting for the right idea, and then transform your basement into the hottest room in the house!
The opportunities for renovations are endless. Many of our clients choose to include a big wet bar, a game area with a pool table, foosball, or dart board, and an extra bathroom. Here are a few additional ways you can make innovative upgrades to your basement.
One of the most popular basement remodels is the guest suite – and for good reason. The average basement has more than enough space for a roomy and comfortable guest quarters. Depending on your budget, this space can also include a bathroom and kitchen. If you often have family or friends staying with you, a guest suite could be the perfect way to welcome them.
Office and Play Room
If you’re a work-from-home parent, the basement could be the ideal solution for working while watching the kids. Make part of the basement your home office, complete with a sound-proof glass door or window. Meanwhile, make the rest of the space a fun playroom for the kids, with plenty of activities to keep them occupied. You can work in a dedicated (and hopefully peaceful) environment while still keeping an eye on the kiddos right outside your door.
Take advantage of a lack of windows in your basement by creating a comfy home theater. By installing movie-theater style seats, a large projection screen, lush red carpet, a sound system, and a popcorn machine, you will have an incredible entertainment space for guests and family. Use the rest of the basement for further entertainment, installing gaming systems or a ping-pong table, or simply go all-in with a complete game room and hangout area.
One renovation is all it takes to breathe new life into your home. Make your basement your favorite room in the house with one of these great ideas.
