5 Ideas for the Perfect Basement Remodel

Dark, dreary, and musty. That is what most basements are like, so if that is what you think of every time you walk down into yours, you are not alone. There are plenty of ways to fix that though, and a few small changes will have you loving your basement much more.

Here are 5 ideas for the perfect basement remodel:

Home Theater

A basement is a perfect place to set up a home theater, as there is plenty of room for everyone to stretch out to relax as the movie is playing. Add a couch or two, some comfortable chairs, a few end tables, and a large television, and you are ready to watch a movie or the big game. If you really want to make this room special, you can construct a bar off to the side for drinks and snacks.

Home Gym

Instead of dragging yourself out of the house in the early morning hours to hit the gym, you can simply go down to your basement and work out there, once you install your own home gym. You can customize your gym for your own workouts and include the equipment you will use the most.

Home Office

Working from home sounds like a fantastic plan until you realize that you can’t get anything done while working at the kitchen table or on your couch. Your basement can become your own home office, complete with a desk, chair, filing cabinets, and the quiet you need to get everything done on time.


You will never need to trip over another toy or Lego if you create a spacious playroom for your children down in the basement. You can create different play areas with their own storage as well as a television viewing area and video game station. The noise will stay downstairs, while you enjoy the quiet upstairs.

Guest Suite

Your guests will enjoy a little more privacy if they have their own guest suite down in the basement away from the rest of your household. A bedroom, bathroom, and sitting area will offer plenty of room for when your guests need some time to themselves. A small kitchenette is also a possibility so that they can keep some easy to prepare foods down there with them.
