A finished basement is a great choice for your custom home if you wish to have a maximum living space. A basement is a bonus room that you can turn into basically anything, and with that in mind, there are a lot of features to consider. If your custom home is finished and you’re looking for something to add to your basement, you’ve come to the right place. Read on for some ideas for what your finished basement could turn into!
An Entertainment Space
The primary and popular use for your finished basement is an entertainment space. The “entertainment space” is a broad term. You might even have a lounge for family and friends to gather or have a gaming space. The most well-lit spot in the basement is the ideal area to set up a pool table with other types of games. Whatever your primary gathering area is, put it in the brightest place.
A Theater Room
What is a better spot to watch movies and shows at home than in your very own movie theater room? The basement is the ideal spot to create a theater room, either in one area of the rooms or for the entire area. This space should have a minimal amount of windows or blackout curtains for the entire theater effect.
Bedroom or Rental Space
Meanwhile, if you’re considering turning the basement into a bedroom for an adult sibling, a guest, or a tenant, you will definitely need points of escape like windows or doors around the bed. Given that your basement is very well insulated and finished, there is no reason why it cannot be someone’s very own night stay.
Wet Bar or Kitchen
Do not forget about some snacks! Game rooms, movie theater rooms, and gathering spaces, in general, are not complete without some beverages and food. A basement does not need an entire kitchen, but it can use the basic necessities of a small fridge, counter space, sink, or storage. Some basements look like a second open-concept living room or kitchen, with a kitchen island separating the two spaces.
