Beautify Your Storage

When you finish your basement, you may need to keep a space open around your utilities and laundry room to keep boxes. However, you should also opt for some built in storage to hide your other things away.

Home Office

By far, the most popular basement finishing idea the past two years has been a home office. With the whole world working from home, everyone needed a quiet, distraction free space to focus on their job. Well it’s our job to create that space! Choose a raised floor to hide away computer cables. Many homeowners chose to compliment sitting at their home office desk with a gym in their finished basement.

If you’re working from home, you already know the importance of a gym. What better way to get rid of two commutes than with an office and gym side by side in your newly finished basement?

Guest or Studio Apartment

Is your basement just sitting there empty? Why not generate a passive income by turning it into a studio apartment? A kitchenette and small bathroom in the basement will add value to your home in addition to the rent you collect.

If you don’t like the idea of keeping your tenant up until midnight with your tapdancing routine, you can still turn your basement into a wonderful place for family and friends. They will love having their own kitchen and bathroom as well as having a place for a bit of time to themselves after the hubbub of a holiday. Even if you don’t decide to include a kitchen in your finished basement, a guest room away from the business of the rest of the home is always appreciated, and the in-laws don’t need hot food anyway.

Basement Bar

One of the most popular ideas for a finished basement has always been a bar. You can turn your basement into a speakeasy, complete with the crooked dart board. However, you can go with a modern design, and recreate your favorite hotel’s bar, complete with taps, shakers, strainers, and dimmable lighting.

Game Room

You’ve always wanted a full size billiard table, and a finished basement is your chance to finally have it. A dart board, video game area, foosball, air hockey, and pinball complete this dreamy room. Many homeowners compliment their gaming room with a small bar, or compliment their bar with some games to play.
