I find it weird, how people often use their basement only to stuff and hold their belongings there. Just like the attic, but at the bottom of the house. Most of them use basement as either storage or laundry room. While there are lots of potentials underneath your first floor.
For starter, you can have your own media room down there. You still have to check your house acoustic in general. But that shouldn’t be a problem. Another option is to build a guest room on your basement, or maybe move your living room or dining room to your basement. Don’t be dazzled by that idea. Some people have managed to do that.
There is no shortage of modern basement ideas to borrow from. Unused basements tend to get filled with every old and unwanted item in the house from worn out furniture to childhood memorabilia. Unfortunately, this is letting precious square footage go to waste. The basement is a perfect space that could be transformed into a warm and welcoming area for your family and friends to enjoy.
A basement redesign, though time-consuming and cost-intensive, not only adds to your living space, it can also increase the value of your home. Additionally, it allows you to explore ideas that you often can’t apply to your main living space.
You could set up a game room or play area for the kids, theater room for family and guests, a wet bar or even an extra bedroom to host visitors. You’ll find plenty of wonderful ideas in this blog!
A Balance of Functionality and Aesthetics
A big focus of contemporary basement designs is cost control. The basement is a relatively big space and renovating it will not be cheap. Usually homeowners don’t want to spend too much on a space that they don’t deem as crucial as the kitchen or bathroom.
Many homeowners, with the help of their contractors, are resorting to modern minimalist remodels. The ideal modern basement balances between aesthetics and functionality. The space need to look good and feel warm. At the same time, it also needs to be comfortable and livable in such a way that it can be put to a variety of uses.
