Are you feeling the itch to tackle some home improvements?  Does it seem like the time to work on your basement? If you said “yes”, you’re not alone!  Basements add another wealth of space at your disposal!

Here are 5 cool ideas you can consider for your dream basement:

  • Home theatre: No more waiting in line and paying marked-up prices for snacks. Enjoy the experience of movie-going, in the comforts of your own home. Consider in-wall speakers to improve the movie-going experience, while also ensuring that no sound escapes.
  • Entertainment space for adults: Wine cellar? Basement bar? These are must-haves on many lists, with various themes you can run with: sports related, chic and modern, vintage class. You can even configure lighting to adapt to different social settings.
  • Man cave: Regardless of theme, amenities in a man cave can include a pool table, fully stocked bar, big screen TV, reclining chair, and/or a fridge. Try sprucing up the space with new floorings, too.
  • Spa suite: This is a novel, but doable, idea. Why not turn your basement into an oasis of peace and tranquility? Make sure that existing heating/cooling ducts, furnaces, etc. are integrated into your design and layout plans. Also, verify if your basement has water seepage issues, which may affect the construction of a spa suite.
  • Guesthouse: A guesthouse is a great benefit to have when you friends or relatives are visiting. Check measurements on whether the design of the space could allow for a full suite.
