Consider the following ideas to transform your basement into usable space.
A basement, even left unfinished, is a great place to create a home gym. You can install flooring that’s ideal for your favorite fitness activities like yoga or aerobics. Your contractor can also help you design a polished-looking gym that includes a wall-mounted television and other features that will enhance your fitness fun.
Think about revamping your basement into a fun sports bar area or even a man cave where you can show off your vintage bar ware collection or sports pennants. Your contractor can design a custom bar to fit into any area of your space.
If you have kids, you likely know how toys seem to accumulate with every month. Creating a basement play area will help you keep toys in one convenient place, where they won’t disrupt the flow of your main floor. You can design a kid-friendly play room that includes chalkboard walls, built-in counters for arts and crafts, and sturdy shelving for housing books, puzzles, and games.
An extra bedroom, especially one that has a bathroom attached, is certainly going to impact the value of your house. Consequently, this may nudge you toward making the investment. If you have family members or friends who frequently visit, it makes sense to create a guest room where they can make themselves at home.
Arts and Crafts Studio
If you enjoy sewing, making jewelry, or even refinishing old furniture, why not transform your basement into your workshop or arts and crafts studio? You can design a space that is specific to your favorite pastimes.
Home Office or Library
A finished basement makes a delightful spot for a home office or library. Tucked away downstairs, an office or library provides a quiet place to get work done or read. Naturally, outstanding temperature control is important in these situations, but we will work to ensure that issues like moisture will not pose a problem.
