The basement is one of the most under-utilized and wasted spaces in homes throughout America. Whether your basement is full of boxes and storage or finished and empty, here are some of our best ideas to help you maximize your basement space.
A Family Hangout Space
Does your family struggle to find a single space in your home that can entertain everyone from your teenager to your baby? The basement is the perfect space for a family hangout area! A finished basement is typically large enough to have multiple activity areas, so you can accommodate everyone’s interests. Your basement could feature any (or all) of the following activity areas:
- An entertainment area with an entertainment center or move theatre
- A playroom
- A home gym to work out while spending time together
- A wine cellar and bar for the adults to entertain
- A craft room
- A pool table or billiards area
- A video game area
- A reading nook
When you build a space that has something for everyone, everyone will spend their time enjoying each other’s company. A family hangout spot will truly transform the way that you and your children spend time together.
Space for Your College Student
Do you have a college student who spends semesters on campus but heads home for the summer months? Use your basement as an apartment for your college student or teenager. Your student will appreciate having their own space and you will be able to use the rest of your basement throughout the rest of the year.
If you have a college student that lives at home during the school year, turning your basement into a study and living space is a fantastic idea. They’ll still be a part of the family, but they will also have a quiet retreat to focus on their studies.
