Have you thought about turning that unfinished basement into something great for years now? Maybe you aren’t sure what to do with it, or just haven’t gotten around to actively looking for a contractor. Browse through these basement finishing ideas and see if something sparks your imagination!
Creating a Kid’s Space
Give the kiddos a space all to themselves by finishing your basement into a play/hang out area. And as a bonus – less noise to carry throughout the house! This project features a ping pong table, climbing ladder exit, and kid’s room complete with bunk beds (not pictured).
Finishing the basement into a dedicated kid’s area is a dream for children who crave their own space, and is great for parents who could use a break from the noise and mess of play time.
What better place for a home theater than a naturally dark, insulated space? By taking advantage of the natural features of a basement you can have built-in insulation and black-out darkness at the flip of a switch.
With modern technology, home theaters are also not as pricey as they once were. Surround sound systems are more affordable than ever and you no longer need a physical library of hundreds of DVDs to feel like you’ve got a good collection. Digital libraries like Netflix don’t require rows and rows of shelf space and new movies are just a click away.
The kids have an option for basement finishing ideas, and the adults get one too! Give yourself a space for entertaining or just somewhere to kick back and make yourself a drink with a built in wet bar in your new, finished basement.
Many homes do not have dedicated bars, let alone wet bars outside of the kitchen. Finishing your basement with a wet bar undoubtedly adds a touch of class to your home aside from just convenience. Your downstairs wet bar can also make an easy-access place for snacks and other beverages without having to make the trip upstairs to the kitchen.
If you have a growing family or would like to make your home a little more house-guest friendly, turning your unfinished basement into additional living space is a very practical way to do it. It is also much less expensive than adding on to your main floor if you already have the infrastructure for a basement.
Some of the benefits of finishing your basement into bedrooms is that they stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter, as well as offer their residents privacy from the main living areas of the home.
