Basements are a vital part of many homes around the world. If your home has a basement, you know that it can add to your space like any other room. Basements can be used for any number of purposes, from storage to a guest room and more. But if you want to use your basement for anything besides a large closet, you need to finish it. Finishing your basement involves more than just bringing furniture downstairs; it involves waterproofing your space, then designing a new room that fits you. With that in mind, here are some ideas on what to do with your newly finished basement.
If you’re a big movie buff or just want a place where the family can sit together and relax while watching the latest tv shows, a basement media room could be for you. More and more homeowners are turning their finished basements into fully functioning media rooms, complete with movie projectors, dvd players, and large viewing screens. This is the perfect option for anyone wanting a new space to enjoy their favorite movie, tv show, or even sporting event.
If you regularly have guests over and want them to feel at home, a guest room in your basement is a good idea. By turning your basement into a fully furnished guest room, you can provide visitors with their own area without taking away from your existing bedrooms. Great for those that have limited space, but want their guests to be comfortable.
Another option that is growing in popularity is the man cave. Man caves are spaces specially designed as a combination media room and hang out spot for those who want a space truly their own. Turn your existing basement into a warm, inviting, fun area where you can watch the game, have a few drinks, and spend quality time with your friends (or family).
