A finished basement opens up so many opportunities for your home and adds a lot of value to your property! You can’t go wrong with some of the classic layouts for a basement remodel—personal gym, home office, playroom, mancave, etc.
Choosing a typical use for your space doesn’t mean you have to adhere to old, tired designs though. Don’t be afraid to upgrade your design with a fun, contemporary twist. After all, there’s always room for improvement. Get started with some of these chic ideas for a unique and classy basement remodel!
1.) Install a projector.
A dark, windowless basement is the perfect place to kick back and enjoy a movie. If you’ve decided to transform yours into a home theater, a pull-down or wall-fixed projector screen will really take it up a notch!
Big TVs are great, but for a truly immersive experience, you can’t beat a projector. Set up a row or two of movie theater recliners and decorate with some classic movie posters to create an even more authentic atmosphere.
2.) Add a wet bar.
Impress your friends and turn your basement into everybody’s favorite hangout with a swanky bar! Invest in a few wall cabinets, a sink, wine fridge or cooler, and some stylish counterspace, and you’ll have everything you need to show off your bartending skills.
Install your counter along the wall to keep the space open or float it in the middle of the room. Add a few bar stools and you’ll be open for business!
3.) Put a half bath under the stairs.
A basement bathroom is a great way to enhance the functionality of your space. The fewer reasons you have to repeatedly walk up and down the stairs, the more time you’ll spend in your finished basement!
Make use of that small space under your staircase by turning it into a convenient bathroom for you and your guests. This will leave you with a lot of options for the rest of the room—a guest bedroom, teenager’s room, or a second cozy living space for the family!
4.) Get creative with storage.
Storage is one of the primary functions of a basement. Update your space without losing that function using innovative built-ins to hold your belongings!
Work storage into the interior design of the room and keep it open for other ideas as well. Set up some wall cabinets, shelves, cubbies, and even a closet or two for convenient and stylish storage space!
