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.
