A basement can be anything that you want it to be. It can be an office, a den, a playroom, literally anything. Remodeling your basement adds value and function to your home. If your basement is unfinished, finishing it out will really add some value to your home. A great way to take advantage of your basement is with plenty of shelving for storage. You can even use it as an extension of your pantry. If you prefer cabinetry over open shelving, that is an option as well. We go over some options for your best 2021 basement remodel below.

Brighten Things Up With Your Best Basement Remodel in 2021

The greatest ways to brighten up your basement are through remodeling the walls, and the lighting. Finishing the walls and adding some warm or bright colors to them will make your basement a more desirable place to spend your time. In addition, plenty of warm lighting will achieve the same effect.

Another great way to make your basement a more desirable place to spend time is by making things convenient. Installing a kitchenette, and small bathroom with a shower will make your basement another home within your home. These additions will also make your basement a great spot for your next party!

Another good use for your basement space is creating your own enclosed home theater with a projection screen and a popcorn machine. However, a popular basement remodeling trend for 2021 is designing basements as open spaces with little to no divisions. Of course, these are your options to choose.
