Angie’s List: Basement Remodeling

10 Basement remodeling ideas:

1. Convert your basement into a home office
A devoted office in your home will give you a quiet place to work and increase your productivity.

2. Give your kids a playroom
What better way to keep the upstairs presentable than to create a devoted place for the kids to play? If it gets too messy, just shut the door until there’s time to clean!

3. Create a home theater
Avoid the crowds and watch movies in the comfort of your own home.

​4. Convert extra space into a spare bedroom
Give your guests a private place to stay, or even consider creating a basement apartment.

5. Convert your space to a basement bar
Why not create a space devoted to entertainment? Add a pool table, a dart board and a TV turned to a sports channel, and you won’t be setting foot in the local bar any time soon.

6. Create a craft room
Pursue hobbies that need more space than the kitchen table. Sewing, painting, scrapbooking: anything that requires a little extra space is fair game.

7. Increase your home’s value
Your home is a huge investment. Why not invest further? Finishing your basement will not only increase your square footage, but it will boost the value of your home.

8. Enjoy a dry basement
Properly waterproofing and finishing your basement can mean no more mold or musty odors. No more property damaged after every rainfall.

9. Create a home gym
It’s easy to fall off the wagon when it comes to working out. Make fitness easier by converting your basement into a gym.

10. Make a place for dry storage space
Even if you have all the space you need, wouldn’t it be nice to have a space devoted to storage? With a finished basement, you won’t have to worry about your valuables being damaged by mold and moisture.
