Home remodeling is popular. However, when considering a whole home remodel, there may be some rooms that you want to change more than others. Basement remodels are one such improvement, and many homeowners are looking into updating their finished basements to make them more unique and inviting.
If you are considering a whole home remodel, here are some ideas to keep in mind when it comes to updating your basement.
1. Turn It Into an Office
With more and more people working from home, creating your own office space can be essential. It can also make workdays easier. A finished basement is a perfect area to create an office in as it is both quieter and more separate from the rest of the house.
If you’re planning on working from home for the foreseeable future, this is definitely something to keep in mind.
2. Create a Playroom
If you have young kids, the basement can be a perfect place for them to play and be loud without disturbing the rest of the house. Kids love having their own “secret” place away from everyone else too.
If you have older kids, the basement can be remodeled into a great hangout spot where teens can watch TV, play games, and (maybe) do homework. This also benefits you as you’ll always know what your teen is up to because your basement will be the best hangout spot in town.
3. Set Up a Private Theater
Basements make great theaters due to their lack of light and soundproofing. By installing a large projector screen, and some comfortable chairs — or even a modular couch — you can create the most comfortable movie-watching experience possible. You can even install a mini bar in the back where you can serve up treats and popcorn before the movie begins.
These are just three of many possibilities that you can consider when it comes time to update your basement. While it may not be the first room on your whole home remodeling to-do list, it can be the one that you fall in love with the most.
