Functional Basement Design Ideas
A basement remodel is a great idea, whether you are planning on selling your home or living in it forever. Don’t let your basement become just a storage room. Think about how you would like to use your basement and the square footage you are working with. Do you have a large family? Are you big on hosting gatherings? Do you like to work out at home? Answering these questions first is important during the planning stage to create a functional basement design.
I’ve collected some awesome finished basement remodel ideas to inspire your renovation!
THE WARM AND COMFY BASEMENT DESIGN
Nice fireplace and comfy chairs are perfect for a night in. Recessed lighting is a great option for basements because the ceilings are typically low.
Keep your open space uncluttered with simple furniture and a statement wall. Warm up your room with a nice fireplace.
Basement bar, modern leather chairs and shelves make this a perfect space for entertaining as well as a family room. Add a fun patterned rug to your space to make it a modern basement!

FOR THE ACTIVE LIFESTYLE
Turn your basement into a gym. Mirrors on the wall-nice touch!
A pool table is a great accessory for the basement. You can even create a basement game room for the family.
How about a hockey rink in the basement? I visited this house (It’s a Lottery Home in London, Ontario) and it’s gorgeous. Lots of real estate to entertain as well!
INDOOR MOVIE THEATRES
Got a large basement? Add an indoor movie theatre for a night in! Without taking up a lot of real estate in your basement, you can create a functional space for movie nights!
