We’ve written a few blogs about what many people do when they invest in basement finishing. Once-opulent additions such as home theaters are becoming more common, while other people are devoting the space to collections, hobbies, and other interests. Here are a few ideas that can really help you make the most of your basement remodel.
Go Easy On The Carpet
When basements started to become a more liveable space, the way to express “this isn’t the wet, dingy area of years past” was to have it carpeted. Today, carpeting is a standard of finished basements, but you can also move beyond that and get even more fancy options. Hardwood floors, acid stained concrete, and other non-carpet options can make it look even better.
Why not have a place where you can entertain friends and show off your mixing skills at the same time? If you put in a wet bar, you’ll be able to mix, shake, and have the ice at the ready. You can also have a kegerator put in! And since you’ll have a sink down there…
Put in a Second Kitchen
None of us likes to think about relatives or in-laws coming to live with us for an extended period of time, but it does happen. If you do have long-term visitors, why not make their space as self-sufficient as possible to match the bed and bathroom you have down there? A kitchen in your remodeled basement can make it a space so that they — and you — can have the privacy you’d all like.
