You’ve made the decision to turn your damp, dreary basement into a serviceable room. Now your basement is finished, it’s time to think about just what you are going to do with it! Here are 3 ideas for what you can do with your finished basement.
Bless Your Home with an Extra Bedroom
If space above ground is getting a little tight, then you could use your finished basement as an extra basement. It is, of course, a ‘rite of passage’ for your eldest child to leave the bedroom they’ve shared all their life with their siblings and ‘move into the basement’.
If you don’t have children, or they are happy where they are, then a guest bedroom is always a handy addition, and will encourage you to have friends and family over to stay. You could even rent out the room and give yourself a little extra income!
Give Yourself the Bonus Room That You’ve Always Wanted
Homes are usually pretty standard in the way that they are set up. Kitchens, bathrooms, living spaces and bedrooms – there’s not usually room for anything else.
Why not choose to turn your finished basement into the bonus room that you’ve always desired? You could also turn it into a dedicated home office, a home theater, a home gym or even a man cave. There are no shortage of options and your only limitation is your imagination!
Why Not Put a Sign on the Door – ‘Adults Only’
When you bought your home, it was probably a case of two adults filling the space in its entirety. If your family has now expanded to include children then you probably can’t move because of your kids, their junk and their friends.
Why not turn your finished basement into a room that acts as a sanctuary for adults where children are not allowed to venture? You could construct a snazzy bar complete with mood lighting, bar stools and space for beer, wine, liquor and non-alcoholic drinks. Install a big TV too and tell your children it’s a no-go area for them!
