4 Ideas for Your Newly Remodeled Basement

If you are in the process of having your basement remodeled or you are planning on having your basement remodeled in the future, it is time to decide what you are going to do in your new space. Is it going to be a space that the whole family can use or are you going to keep the space all to yourself? These are important questions that you need to ask.

Here are 4 ideas for your newly remodeled basement:

  • StockSnap CLD6T4J9VZMovie theater: If your family watches a lot of movies, then you can fill this space with a large television screen and surround sound. For seating, you can include comfortable couches or roomy recliners. Snacks are a must during movies, so a bar in the corner can hold food, drinks and a popcorn machine.
  • Home office: Working from home can be a challenge for many people, because there is never a quiet space. In your newly remodeled basement, you can set up a desk as well as a table and chairs for meetings. A mini refrigerator and a cupboard for snacks ensures that you will not have to leave the space when you need a little pick me up.
  • Playroom: Toys seem to be everywhere these days and if you are tired of them taking up the entire upstairs then your new basement needs to be turned into a playroom. We recommend that you place shelves on the walls to hold books and board games and baskets on the floor to hold bulkier toys. Small storage bins with lids can hold the millions of Legos and other small toys that your children have acquired.
  • Family room: A family room can be divided into different sections, so that everyone can do what they enjoy. A table and chairs can be set to one side, so that everyone has a place to work on homework or play board games. A cozy section in the corner can contain a couple of chairs with a lamp for reading or craft work. No one can forget the television in the family room and you can place a couch and a couple of comfy chairs in front of it for viewing everyone’s favorite television shows.

Efficient Basement Design

Don’t let any of that valuable basement square footage to go to waste in a poor design. You need to carefully plan how you want to use the space so that you don’t let this beautiful new space sit unused for months or start to fill it with boxes and other unused items that you have no idea what to do with. Always design your remodeled basement with a goal in mind so you have the exact space you want by the end of the project.
