Do you love the idea of a basement but don’t know what to do with the space? Whether you grew up with a basement or have always been dreaming of one, we have five suggestions on how to make the space come to life!
Our basements offer a full-sized bedroom and bathroom, creating a perfect space for guests. Transform the space into an oasis for visitors, complete with a ground-level private entrance. The additional living space in the basement is great for guests to watch their own shows and have their own privacy.
A basement is a great place for games. Fill the space with a pool table, table tennis, board games, and video games for endless family fun. Basements are also the perfect location for kids’ activities. Convert your basement into the ideal kids’ space, complete with TVs, books, toys, and more. The separation from upstairs can also help to buffer noise.
Turn your space into a movie theater with a TV or projector and screen with ample seating for everyone. Fun additions include a popcorn machine, recliner seats, and movie posters hung on the walls. Since there are minimal windows, you can make the space extra dark with blackout curtains for a real cinematic experience.
Working from home can be quite distracting at times. Use your basement to create your own quiet office space. Built-in bookshelves are a great way to utilize the space for a home office.
Our walk-out basements with nice outdoor spaces are the perfect place for an adult getaway. A basement is a great place to host a party with plenty of space for a bar. Multiple levels (deck and patio) are perfect for entertaining.
In addition to these ideas for utilizing the space, there are other ways to make your basement the best spot in the house! Painting the walls bright, light colors will help to add light to the otherwise dim space. Recessed lighting is also a great way to fight the absence of natural light in basements. Adding a bar or small kitchen to your basement makes entertaining a breeze. Avoid using the stairs to retrieve snacks and drinks. Basements are also an ideal spot for storage. Use closets or unfinished areas to store things that would otherwise be placed in the garage or attic.
