There is no shortage of modern basement ideas to borrow from. The basement is a perfect space that could be transformed into a warm and welcoming area for your family and friends to enjoy.

A basement redesign, though time-consuming and cost-intensive, not only adds to your living space, it can also increase the value of your home. Additionally, it allows you to explore ideas that you often can’t apply to your main living space.

You could set up a game room or play area for the kids, theatre room for family and guests, a bar or even an extra bedroom to host visitors.

Many of our customers, with our help, are resorting to modern minimalist finishes. The ideal modern basement balances functionality and aesthetics. The space needs to look good and feel warm, yet staying comfortable and livable in such a way that it can be put to a variety of uses.



Determine what your home is missing.

If there are kids around, they are likely running out of room for their toys. If you work from home, you may need an isolated and quiet space where you can get some work done.

If you don’t have a dedicated guest bedroom, the basement is the perfect place to set one up.

Maybe it’s just great extra space, a blank palette—there are so many awesome ways you can use the basement. A movie room, game room, family room or kitchenette can provide a special place for the family to bond and have fun. 

Man caves and/or woman caves have become trendy and there are plenty of modern basement cave ideas available to inspire your own private space.

Multipurpose Basements

Bedrooms – A common strategy is to set up a couple of extra bedrooms in the basement for guests. This is especially beneficial for families that love to entertain on a regular basis. You can easily have guests stay over without disrupting the family space above. Basement bedrooms can also come in handy if you have older kids that cannot share bedrooms anymore. You could even add a small kitchenette and bathroom for convenience.
Children’s Play Areas – When looking at modern basement design photos; one common idea is to set up a play area for kids. This area often consists of soft flooring, such as a rug or wooden floor, and colorful easy-to-reach storage for toys and games. You can use colourful and playful décor to separate it from the rest of the basement space.
Entertainment – In another area of the basement, you could add a play area for adults. This usually includes setting up a pool table and a dart board on the wall. You can also get a table tennis table if pool is not your thing. Another great idea is to set up a video game center.
Bars – While everyone is having all this fun, there will be a desire for refreshments. Don’t forget to set up a full bar where you can stock juices and other beverages for the kids and something stronger for the adults. You can even combine it with a kitchenette where you can prepare a few snacks.
Also don’t forget home gyms, wine cellars, theatres and work from home offices. The ideas are endless. Your goal should be to get as much value from the space as possible. If your basement is small, use it to fill a void such as an extra bedroom or additional organised storage space. If it is big, find several fun ways you can utilize the space and add value.
