You have many options about what you can do with your basement. Usually, it is a large open space that provides room for different activities. Take advantage of this and design a room where you will want to spend time. Here are five elegant ways you can upgrade your basement without having to hire contractors, movers, or planners.
1. A Home Movie Theater
Because basements are underground, light does not enter them like in the rooms. This makes a basement perfect for a movie theater. There are different ways you can achieve this. The first is to purchase a rotating pull-down screen, attach it to the ceiling close to a wall, and use it only when needed. Another option is painting one of your walls white so that it can double as a screen for your projector. Both options work well. Get a couple of long couches to fit everyone and enjoy.
2. A Home Gym
This is an excellent way for you to use the space. Set up a place where you can get some cardio and weight lifting accomplished. Get a screen TV down there as well. Make sure the Wi-Fi connection is strong and stream all the best workout videos. A gym at home will make your basement elegant and functional instantaneously.
3. A Game Room
A room where everyone can have fun is a great idea. Game rooms are easy to achieve, depending on the games you want. A pool table will transform the space. Other games like board games, darts, Nintendo, and table chess will provide hours of endless fun. For features that might not get as much attention, such as window wells, consider installing a decorative window well liner to complete your game room with some graphics and visuals.
4. A Basement Guest Room
A basement may feel cold and isolated, but not with the right accessories and equipment. A comfortable basement is perfect for guest bedrooms. Elements to make an underground guest bedroom comfortable include:
5. A Wine Cellar
The most elegant way you can upgrade your basement is by turning it into a wine cellar. A round table for eight people fits perfectly and provides seating for everyone on a wine tasting evening. Building a wall shelf for all the wines would be ideal, but anywhere you can place and keep them will do.
