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.
I’ve collected some awesome finished basement remodel ideas to inspire your renovation!
THE WARM AND COMFY BASEMENT
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!
