Top 5 Basement renovation ideas

Is your basement the family junk room? Do old toys and clothes jockey for space with pictures that have nowhere to hang (literally), half-empty tins of paint, tools and old furniture? Renovating the basement can add a new dimension to your home by increasing your living space. And you will add value to your home at the same time.

So now you’ve decided to go ahead and renovate your basement, what are you going to use the space for? Here’s our top five ideas:

Home gym
You really want to get or stay in shape, but you never have time to get to the gym. Basements are the perfect space to turn into a gym. A treadmill, some weights...mirrors on the wall and you’re good to go. For added convenience, add a bathroom so you can shower off after a workout. You, your family and basement will all be in great shape.

Guest room
Now the kids are older and have a bedroom each, you’re all out of space should family or friends from out of town come to visit. But turning your basement into a guest room with an en-suite bathroom will instantly transform your home into the Ritz. Basement guest rooms are very popular. They offer visitors a nice, private space to relax during their visit.

Home office
Working from home? Whether you’re a freelance worker, allowed to telecommute to your job or simply need a quiet efficient set up to take care of personal finance, the basement makes a great setting for a home office.

Games room
Pool, Ping-Pong, video games. A play pen full of toys—the basement can be the perfect games room for children of all ages. Add in some half-decent sound proofing, and it won’t matter how loud things get down there, the rest of your home will remain nice and quiet...not to mention an awful lot tidier!

Home theatre
With so many amazing products on the market as far as home-theatre systems are concerned, it would be almost criminal not to consider turning your basement into a home movie theatre. Giant screen TV, surround sound and comfortable seating will instantly turn your basement into the most popular room in the house.
