Basements have a great deal of potential, even those that are unfinished. They are large, expansive spaces that are often left underutilized, and as an entertainment and games area, there’s no place better. A previously unused and unappealing area can be transformed into a lush and plush space that the whole family will enjoy for many years to come. Just image coming down your new open-railed, hardwood staircase to a warm and welcoming family room, complete with custom built-in cabinetry, unique niches, and other architectural features created to disguise unsightly ductwork or drain pipes.
By renovating your basement, you can create a truly multifunctional area that will dramatically increase your usable space, adding instant value to your what is likely your largest investment – your home.
Consider the following options for your family, or rec room:
- A variety of lighting options
- A gas fireplace
- Leaving room for games tables
- A wet bar for entertaining
- Crafts and/or work shop
- Extra storage spaces
