7 Basement Remodeling Ideas

New Year, new projects – and our team is ready to work! Basements are high on the list of all the spaces we frequently remodel for our clients. Whether completing an unfinished space or reimagining an old one, we create custom lower levels around your lifestyle. We’ve done everything from media rooms to bar areas to guest suites! Are you searching for lower level design inspiration? Read on below for 7 basement remodeling ideas!

 

Family Room

An informal family room is one of the most common spaces in any basement. Every family could benefit from having multiple cozy places to spread out and relax – especially if you can’t agree on TV or movie choices! A secondary lounge is also a helpful hangout for kids and teens during multigenerational gatherings.

 

Bar Area

If hosting is your forte, we highly recommend adding a basement bar area. From parties to happy hour to gameday to holiday gatherings, basement bars make entertaining a breeze! Instead of running up and down between levels, everything you need is on hand: drinks, dishware, snacks, and the supplies for cleanup.

 

Media Room

Whether you’re a film buff or enjoy a good movie marathon, a media room is an excellent lower level addition. Most major movies are available to stream at home after the pandemic; why look up movie times, reserve tickets, and pay for expensive concessions when you could just walk downstairs?

 

Game Space

There’s nothing like an arcade or an epic game of Monopoly to bring out the kid in anyone! Game spaces are the perfect way to bring fun and fellowship into your home, from pool tables to arcade games to poker tables to puzzle stations. Deal us in!

 

Home Office

As mobile work has become the norm, the demand for quality home offices has risen. A well-designed home office can help you stay organized, manage tasks, inspire creativity, and cultivate a calm working environment. Creating a dedicated office space also limits where work happens, setting a boundary between work and personal time.

 

 

Guest Suite

Guest rooms are handy on any level of your home, but basements are the perfect location for a guest suite! We love these separate guest spaces because they provide privacy, extra breathing room, and an attached bathroom. It’s like having your own cozy in-house B&B to offer family and friends!

 

 

Home Gym

Want to stay in shape without breaking the bank? A home gym is convenient and can be tailored to your specific goals and workout routine. Don’t have space for a dedicated gym? Create a space for clever and flexible workout equipment storage – it’s the best of both worlds!
