Home Improvement Tip #43: Remodel Your Basement for More Space
With the recent flooding that took place after that desperately- needed rain yesterday, we’ve gotten some calls on refinishing or remodeling basements. While no one likes to walk downstairs to a flooded basement, starting from scratch with a new basement remodel could give you a ton more space in your home! Not convinced? Here are some great uses for your newly finished basement:
1) Home Gym
With New Year’s resolutions nice and forgotten, now’s the chance to get ready for beach season by using your new basement for a home gym! Chances are you already have some gym equipment awkwardly strewn about your home, or tucked into that corner of your bedroom. Get motivated to get in shape with your own private home gym – once you’ve contacted a professional north shore basement remodeling contractor, start shopping around for your new gym equipment and map out your floor plan.
2) Home Theater
Refinished basements are a great solution to get some additional entertainment space in your home. How fun would it be for you and your family to set up your own home theater system? Invite friends, or spend some quality family time together with the latest new release or some of the classics. Start thinking about how you’d like to layout the space, so your basement remodeling contractor knows where you’re new flat screen is going to go.
3) Home Office
Sometimes you just need to bring some work home. Instead of spreading out at the dining room table or in the kitchen, get caught up in the privacy of your new home office. This is ideal for smaller homes with individuals looking for the same privacy and a place to focus on getting their work done. Imagine getting that late-night conference call request and being able to take it in the silence of your new office. You and your partner both need a space? Set up a double office by throwing up a small partition.
4) Children’s Playroom
Since purchasing your home, you may have started a family. When it’s raining outside or you have guests over, send the kids downstairs to their own play room! They can be as loud as they want without being disruptive to you, and gives them the space they need to play outside of their rooms. Be sure to stock it with plenty of board games!
5) Bar or Gameroom
Not quite ready for kids yet? Outfit your new basement with your own bar, or set up a game room! Perfect for young professionals looking for more space to entertain, this is a great space to store your alcohol all in one place. Why stop at a bar, though? It might be fun to set up a TV for sports games, or to invest in a pool table or dart board.
