In most homes, the basement is normally the most overlooked room in the house. When it comes to the basement, maintenance, renovations, repairs and even remodeling is never an option to many.
This should not be the case because forgetting about your basement means forgoing an opportunity to be creative and come up with an extra room. Wondering how? Here are some ideas to consider.
Interesting? Yes, you can remodel your basement and turn it into a recreational area. Since a basement is hidden and far from kids, this will make the perfect place for you to store away and sometimes have your liquor. A movie room also sounds like a fun idea.
When you want to relax and just have some alone time from the buzzing and noises, the basement is your perfect go-to place. This is why it can make an awesome lounge area. But you cannot do that if it is in a mess and super chilly. Not to worry though, a simple remodeling and basement finishing project can make it alright.
If you have a large family, do not bundle up yourselves in the few bedrooms available. The basement can make for an extra room. Add a bathroom if there isn’t any, do some painting, include drywalls, add a HVAC system, add furniture and boom! You have an extra bedroom.
Another excellent idea is a homeschool haven. Since people do not frequent basements, it can be the best place for your child to hide away and read or be schooled. Alternatively, you can make it a study or an office, depending on your needs.
The basement is the exact reflection of what a man cave is. Dark, hidden and away from the world. You can decide to treat yourself, or your boys to a space where they can always go, play games, bond and just do all that boys do. But remember, man cave does not mean messy or unfurnished.
Room for hire
Besides using your basement for personal needs, you can also get some cash from it. An excellent way to do this would be to rent it out. But, no one will be willing to pay and live in an unkempt space. Thus you have to do some remodeling and basement finishing.
