Ideas For A Basement Remodel
If you have a basement that you want to remodel but you are unsure what direction you want to go in, we can show you some design ideas and help determine what will be the best design direction for your basement.
Here are a few ideas to turn your basement into a functional area that expands the usable living space in your home.
Build A Small Apartment
Turning your basement into a small apartment can be very useful in a few different ways. A mother-in-law apartment is a great way for elderly parents to still have some privacy and independence if they are living with you.
You can also rent a small apartment either long term or short term rentals using AirBnb or a similar platform. This can make your basement work for you and earn money each month! If you live in a popular area for tourism or travel nurses, this can be lucrative.
You can also simply use it as a spare or guest bedroom if you have frequent visitors. You can build a kitchen if it will be used long-term or keep it simple for guests. We can add a bathroom and build out the apartment however you would like.
Make The Perfect Man or Lady Cave
Every man, or woman, needs a place where they can relax after a long day of work. We can help you design the perfect man or lady cave to turn your basement into a unique hangout spot that you can enjoy every day.
A man cave might have a big TV, a bar, a fridge full of beer, cool lighting, a comfy recliner or couch, video games, or anything else that you would like. It’ll be the perfect spot to crack a cold one and watch the game after work.
Ladies might have a comfy bean bag chair, a wine cooler, a library, a TV, a spot for yoga, or a reading nook. A stressful day at work will be no match for an evening enjoyed with a glass of wine and a good book or a few episodes of your favorite show.
Stay Focused With A Basement Office
With the rise in people working from home, there is an increased need for a home office. Building an office in the basement can help you find some peace and quiet to get your work done without the distractions that you’ll find in other parts of the house.
You can design your office to fit your needs so that you’ll have a motivating workspace that will make “going” to work not so bad.
