Finished Basement Ideas

The basement is one of the most neglected spaces in most homes, but it holds lots of potential. It can be converted from a dingy neglected storage space into one of the most beautiful areas in your house.

Renovating your basement increases viable living space for you and your family and also raises the value of your home. Here’s a list of a few finished basement designs that a capable renovation company can help you transform your basement into:

 

  1. Living Room

A second living space acts as an extension of your home. It can have a similar design to your current living space, or you can choose a totally new look. This space comes in handy when you need to relax as you read a page or two of your current book. It’s also a great space for the family to relax together as they watch a movie and catch up. With such a renovation, the value of your home goes up.

  1. Game Room

Your basement can be redesigned into an impressive family game room. With a family game room, the whole family gets to play and have fun. It becomes the one place in the house where you can all relax after a long day at work or school. Throw in a pool table and all the games that are family-friendly and let the fun begin.

  1. Kid’s Bedroom

Having children means that at a certain age – when they’re teenagers – they’ll require a little more privacy. What’s a better way to give them that than a beautiful basement bedroom? This gives them space to study, do homework, and host friends over for a fun-filled movie night.

You can even integrate a decorative bathroom for them for more privacy.

  1. Guest Bedroom

Turn your basement into a gorgeous guestroom for your relatives and friends. This way, they don’t have to spend a night in a hotel when they’re in town for work or when they visit you. If you have enough space, you can add a bathroom and other amenities to make their stay cozier.

  1. Kids’ Playroom

If you convert your basement into a kids’ playroom, it will be a dream come true for them.  Have a few of their favourite games (good chance to add new games) and all their toys in the playroom, and they’ll have somewhere they can play and have fun no matter the weather.

  1. Basement Bar

No space upstairs? Bring the party downstairs!

Turn your basement into a fancy home bar where you can host friends, relatives, and colleagues for events or just for fun. Create it in a sports bar design or any other fantastic designs that you prefer. It’s a great way to try out those mixology techniques in you.

  1. Private Gym

Creating time to exercise in the local gym can be challenging due to work and family time. Turn a section of or your entire basement into a private gym with necessary work out equipment for a more convenient workout routine. You can add accessories such as a TV, a water dispenser, refrigerator, shelves, and other stuff to make the gym comfortable to utilize.

  1. Home Office

Having a place you can work peacefully at home can be a challenge. This is because the kids want to play, and the family wants to watch their favourite show, which messes with your concentration. Why not turn the wasted space in the basement into your office?

Renovate your basement into a comfortable home office where you can work efficiently without disturbance. Unclutter your bedroom and family space with your work and enjoy the feel of a real office.

  1. Basement Kitchen

Yes! You read that right. A basement kitchen is a crazy but great idea to utilize your basement. It can be an addition to your existing kitchen or a part of a basement apartment to rent out. Either way, with the right renovation and finishing company, you can create a safe and fully equipped basement kitchen.

  1. Wine Cellar

Love fine wine? Build an elegant wine cellar and spend quality time with your friends, family, or guests savouring quality drinks. Choose from a variety of existing designs or create a unique style that serves your intended purpose. If done right, you can create the perfect atmosphere to store any wine.

  1. Home Theatre

Entertainment is a part of our everyday lives, and that’s why you should consider the idea of turning your basement into a home theatre. This is a perfect way to transform your basement as the whole family gets to benefit from it. Your kids get to watch their favourite animations with their friends, and you can bring your pals over to watch football or movies in luxury.

  1. Man Cave

Looking for a place to hang out with friends over the weekend? Turn your basement into the perfect man cave and spend time having fun your way. You can design it with a bar, a game room, a TV room, and other things that you prefer. It’s also a great place to spend your alone time.

  1. Music Room

If you are a musician or have a kid who loves making music, you can renovate the basement into a music room or a bedroom music studio. With some sound-proofing, one can make music comfortably without disturbing the rest of the family. You can add a basement bathroom for more versatility.

  1. Basement Apartment

It’s always good to make use of what we have to gain some income. If you have a basement that is not being utilized, you can renovate it into an apartment (studio or otherwise) and rent it out. This will be a great way to earn returns instead of wasting all that space.  A basement apartment will also increase the value of your home.

  1. Multi-tasking Rooms

Another perfect way to make use of the basement is to divide into several rooms – each room serving a different purpose. For example, you can build a basement bedroom, gym, and a playroom for your kids. This is mostly suitable for big basements to ensure each room gets enough space.

Don’t let your basement go to waste when you can turn it into a showpiece!
