If you currently have an unfinished basement, then you’re literally sitting atop limitless possibilities for upgrading your home; extra square footage that can mean finally having that man cave your husband always wanted, a playroom for the kids, or a space that you can dedicate to your home office. If you’re contemplating how to utilize your unfinished basement, here are a few possibilities to get you thinking.
The theater room. Most basements get very little natural light, and while this may be a detractor for a lot of living spaces, it’s the perfect environment for creating a theater room or family den.
The home office. If you work from home, heading downstairs to an office in your basement is a great way to separate your home life and your personal life. When the workday is over, close the basement door and leave the office behind.
The man cave. Want a spot to watch the game with friends? Install a built-in bar, set up a pool table, and you’ve got a place all of your friends will be happy to gather on weekends.
The playroom. Sick of looking at your kids’ toy strewn around the living room? Turn your basement into a dedicated playroom, complete with built-in storage that makes it easy to contains kid-clutter.
The in-law suite. If you have aging parents, lots of out-of-town visitors, or a live-in nanny or au-pair, consider turning your basement into an in-law suite, complete with a kitchenette, bathroom, and bedroom.
