Are you and your family outgrowing your house? Do you need more room to entertain guests? Or maybe an extra family room as your kids get older and need more space to entertain themselves? As babies are born, high schoolers want their own room, or in-laws need to move in, you may find yourself struggling to make the room in your house. Buying a bigger house may be out of the option but have you considered that unfinished basement below your feet? We’ve done some research and here are some fun and practical ideas to finish your basement.
Creating another bedroom, bathroom and even a small living room space gives your guests privacy when they stay at your home. It also means you won’t have to kick your teenager out of their room for a few days. When there aren’t guests there, this gives your family room to spend time downstairs if they need some privacy or a quiet spot.
Have you ever dreamed of having a home theater? Think large, comfy couches, a huge media screen, low lighting and maybe a microwave or small stove top for the popcorn! While you may think it would be a waste to dedicate a whole room to watch movies, don’t think it is one-use only. During the day, you can still use it as a play room, reading room, napping room and any other fun your family might conjure up.
Are you struggling to find time to go to the gym? Or maybe you can never find the combo of machines and weights you are looking for. Create your own, tailored home gym in your basement. The machines don’t take up too much space so you can also use the other half for a play room, an artist’s studio, or even a small wine cellar.
There is a lot that goes into planning to finish your basement. While it may be overwhelming at first, it is possible!
