Take advantage of your basements space…
Whether your basement is a small room or takes up an entire floor of your home, there are plenty of options when it comes to using the space effectively. Most people don’t take advantage of the available space their basement has to offer when the area can be extremely useful. Lionsgate Design put together some possibilities for what you may want to do.
1. Family Room
Some of us are limited to one family room on the upper level of our homes. Adding another family room in the basement is the most common option – it gives you another area in the house to sit back and relax.
2. Guest Suite
Sometimes placing a guest suite away from the other bedrooms is your best bet. You want your guest to feel as comfortable as possible, and the basement provides a level of privacy that a shared hallway may not.
Have you ever found it difficult trying to relax because your kids are constantly having fun, playing together and making noise? This probably forces you to hide out in another room. Adding a playroom in the basement is a perfect escape for both you and your children. This way, they can let loose and have fun, and you can get some peace and quiet.
Sometimes we don’t have the space for an office in our homes, but what if we do in our basements? Sure – your natural light might be minimal, but the right light fixtures can do the trick. Opt for a basement office and make it your personal sanctuary.
Not all of us have the time to go to the gym or even like too. Building an area for a gym in your basement is beneficial to you and the rest of your family. It’s almost impossible to not take advantage of the gym space when it’s just under your feet.
6. Kid’s Room
If your kid’s are entering their teenage years, it’s likely that they’ll appreciate their privacy as much as possible. Allowing your kids to switch their rooms to the basement gives them a sense of independence. Even better, you’ll have an additional room upstairs to play around with!
