If there is enough space in your basement, then a very good way to use it is by creating a gym. Installing gym equipment will save you dollars on an expensive gym membership and there will also be no need to go anywhere else after a long working day. You can workout right inside your home.
A Home Movie Theatre
Watch a Movie Any Time
If you decide to install a home theatre in your basement, it will allow you to install a sound system, which will not be too noisy for the neighbors and other parts of your house.
It is quite beneficial to have an extra bedroom in your house. This creates an extra bedroom in your property that can increase the value dramatically whilst also giving you what could be a much needed bedroom for a growing family. Having a guest room that is separate from the rest of the house can be beneficial for friends and relatives who might want some peace and quiet while they’re visiting.
A Study Room
Quiet and Cozy Study Room
Your basement can be a perfect place for your study room; since it is a quieter and more secluded area than the rest of the property. It is the best room for the older children who are working towards exams. They will have a “quiet area” in which they are free from distraction to study or adults who are looking to get some extra work done without the distraction of children and a blaring television.
Have a Meeting at Home
If you are a businessman and your business is growing, the basement converted into to an office can be a perfect scenario. The basement can also be used for the meetings without having to go through a potentially messy and unprofessional looking home.
Sauna and Spa
Your Own Spa
You can also choose to install home sauna, steam room or a hot tub, but you will have to hire a contractor to handle everything.
Extra Bathroom is Never Bad
There are many family members in your house, but there are not enough bathrooms and you feel the need for having an extra bathroom, especially in the mornings while getting ready for your work? Then converting the basement into a bathroom is a perfect solution.
Play and Enjoy
Convert your basement into an entertaining room, such as game room. You will love to spend your spare time with your friends, playing games and having a nice conversation. Basements are large enough for big table games such as billiard and ping pong and other active games. They are separate from the rest of the house, so noisy games will not disturb other home dwellers.
Hang Out with Your Friends
Many men have always dreamed of owning their own bar. While actually owning a bar can be quite difficult, building a bar in your basement and having friends over to visit is not as hard. Home built bars are a very popular addition to a home. In a finished basement, a bar can be the element that turns the room into a place to hang out and entertain.
A Play Room
Juicy and Fruity Play Room
Every kid needs space to release his or her endless bounds of energy – ideally, that area should not be in the middle of your carefully curated living room. Your kid can have his or her own designated section of the house by transforming a basement space into a playroom.
Great Place for Laundry
If you do not like the noise of the washing machine and the vibration it may give, then the basement can be an ideal place for laundry, and it also be the place where your children will not have a chance to reach washing powder, detergents, bleach, and other toxic products, which can be dangerous for them.
