3 Ideas for a Basement Remodel October 30, 2018

3 Ideas for a Basement Remodel, ,

Is your unfinished basement starting to feel like a waste of space? Sprucing up the space can transform a once-dingy area into one you can’t wait to spend more time in. If you’ve been thinking about making a basement remodel your next major home improvement project, here are just some of the possibilities to consider.

3 Ways You Can Transform Your Basement

Home Theater

By setting your sights on a home theater for your basement home improvement project, you can enjoy the atmosphere of the cinema in the comfort of your home. Instead of flat, single-tiered seating, your basement floor can be transformed into stadium seating so there isn’t a bad viewing angle in the house. Instead of a television as your viewing screen, an entire wall can be taken up by a projector screen. A powerful sound system can also bring every movie to life, but some strategically installed soundproofing insulation will ensure no one else in your home is bothered by any late-night screenings. Add a touch of built-in mood lighting, and you’ll be ducking down into your basement all the time for viewing parties.

Game Room

To set the right mood, lighting is especially important. If you’re aiming for a luxurious, casino-like atmosphere, dimmer built-in lights can cast the right amount of shine without overwhelming the area. A bar area complete with seating and refrigeration is also an excellent addition. From there, it’s all about the games you want to include. With pool, foosball, cards, and arcade games, there are numerous options to create a unique and entertaining space.

Wine Cellar

Perfect for storing a vintage merlot for decades or just a bottle until the weekend, a basement wine cellar is a must-have for any vino enthusiast. A wine cellar doesn’t need to take up the entire basement space. Instead, a smaller storage area can be built to accommodate hundreds of bottles and can even feature a temperature- and humidity-controlled environment so the drinks are perfectly preserved.
