A basement remodel is a great way to add extra living space to your home without taking on an addition. It also offers an attractive return on your investment and has the potential to serve a variety of different purposes for you and your family. Here are some great basement remodel ideas for an unfinished basement.
No matter the size of your basement, small or large, a home theater is a fun and easy addition. With a home theater you can bring your family together to watch your favorite movies, without leaving the house. Apart from the projection screen and comfy seating consider adding a popcorn and snack machine to add a more realistic cinema experience.
Built In Seating
Sofa sets may crowd smaller basement areas, and even larger ones. By incorporating built-in seating the floor space opens up while adding a cozy feel. Creating built-in seating with under seat storage is also a helpful way to store items that would instead take up space in your basement.
Building custom cabinetry in your basement allows you to play around with the organization of your stored items. Cabinetry may be just what you need to increase storage while maximizing your basement space. One design method is to create custom cabinetry on one wall, by layering built in cabinets with shelves and a TV stand. You can add as many shelves, cabinets, or drawers depending on your organization needs and style. By shifting all of your storage components to one wall you reduce the amount of floor space used by tables and storage bins, leaving room for kids to play or for some family fun.
You can add privacy and structure to your basement by sectioning it off with wall dividers. Whether you build a half wall or full wall, you can customize the layout of your basement space and build many different rooms to make it a multipurpose space. Half wall dividers can be used to create division in your space without closing it off completely. Create multipurpose basements that have office spaces, kids play areas, or TV rooms. Build rooms within your basement to maximize its utility by creating a guest bedroom, bathroom, laundry room or other work areas.
