Whether your basement is a small room housing a fuse box, a water cylinder and some storage boxes, or takes up an entire floor of your home, there are many options when it comes to using the space effectively. Maximizing this space means getting the most out of the room, which could involve transforming it into a usable family room or creating functional storage. These basement remodeling ideas from JLR Home Renovation will help you make the most of this underutilized area of your home:
Guest Suite With Fireplace — Transform your basement into a suite that makes your guests feel right at home. If you have hobbies, say beer brewing, for instance, then you can remodel to make the space accommodating for that purpose. This way, the room can still be used even when you don’t have guests.
Living Room Area — Your basement can also be designed to function as a second living room or bonus room area. The space can double as a play area for children or a multimedia entertainment area with a large-screen TV for the rest of the family.. Discuss your goals and ideas with your remodeling contractor and they will help you design the perfect space for you and your family.
Desk/Study Area — If you have a roomy basement, then don’t let all that space go to waste. Add in a sleek desk that fits the style of your study area. Throw in a bookshelf and you’re all set for your reading in one of the most private rooms of your home.
Home gym — Setting up a home gym in your finished basement might just be the perfect way to get in shape without the hassle of going to the gym. As an added benefit, you get to choose the workout equipment that best suits your needs and you can exercise in the privacy of your own home – whenever and however you want!
