Getting your basement finished is a great idea for several reasons. And right now, you have a blank canvas for turning this part of your home into whatever you want. Here are some ideas for what you can do when you finish your basement.
It’s no surprise that many people will visit the gym as a part of their New Year’s resolutions. Why not turn your basement into the perfect workout area? Having a private gym in your own house will make working out convenient and pressure-free. Whether you have a treadmill collecting dust in a corner, wind up with exercise equipment as a Christmas present, or are a seasoned athlete with a busy schedule, creating a gym at home gives you the ability to stay in shape without paying for a gym membership.
A very popular choice for finishing basements is to turn part of the space into a home theater. You have plenty of space to put comfy theater chairs, a flatscreen TV, or even a projector screen. Since the basement is usually far away from any bedrooms in a two-level house, it’s the perfect place to keep large speakers for late-night movie marathons without disturbing anyone sleeping. You can give your home theater a casual design or go all out with a snack bar to hold drinks and popcorn.
If you’re looking for a more practical and versatile use for your basement, or you are hosting a large family for the holidays, then you could turn your basement into a guest room. Adding a bedroom, and bathroom if it’s in the budget, will also significantly increase the value of your home. Just keep in mind that most building codes require the room to have a window in order for it to qualify as a bedroom. When finishing your basement, you can do any combination of these ideas, or add a bar, home office, children’s playroom, and more.
