Fabulous Basement Ideas

,

If your basement could use a makeover and you are not sure where to start, we have compiled some impressive ideas. Convert a gloomy storage space into a terrific family space. There is no limit to the ideas we can come up with to help your renovation to be its absolute best. First thing is first, what do you want to do with this space?  Here are a few ideas: 

Guest Suite

Are you the entertaining type that enjoys having friends and family over to visit? Do you have family that lives out of town or possibly the country and would love to give them a comfy place to stay when visiting? Consider a guest suite in your basement. Add new flooring, walls, lighting, door and paint with some bright or neutral colors to keep a welcoming look. The addition will create value to the home and give an overnight guest a private place to stay. 

Additional Bathroom

Adding a bathroom is always a good idea, especially if you currently only have one bathroom in the house. The basement is a great space for an additional bathroom as usually the access to pipes and the septic system is nearby. Enclose walls, add some warm and inviting tiles, vanity, and toilet. This would also be an excellent space to add those luxury bathroom features such as a hot tub, or large walk-in shower with “rain like” shower fixtures. 

Gaming Area

If your family and friends are into games, be it pool or video games, a gaming area in the basement is the perfect use for the space.   Framed in walls that are freshly painted to a neutral color, padded or even heated flooring, updated ceiling with bright light fixtures can turn the drab to fab. Add the pool table, fuse ball table, video gaming system, and more to the area to finish the look. Now your family is ready for long winters, and rainy days or even hot evenings in the summer when you just don’t want to be outside. 

Work Out Area

Why spend money on a gym membership only to fight the traffic and the crowds once you get there. Work out in the privacy of your own home. A huge array of ideas exists for home gyms. For instance, a weight space to a dance/yoga area, the sky is the limit. Don’t forget to add in a first-rate sound system to get you motivated as well as heated flooring for your toes to stay warm if aerobics or yoga is your thing. 

Family Room 

Creating a family room for movies, cuddles and good times is always a wonderful use for a basement space. Make the room special by adding some fun luxuries into the room.  Consider a  small refrigerator for drinks, built-in shelving for books, or padded cushy carpeting for tiny toes. The goal for this space is a getaway for the family.  Provides some extras that the rest of the house does not. Maybe a huge theater wall with a giant screen and surround sound? 

Bar
