- Play Area: Tired of having to step over piles of toys in the living room? Make the basement a play area, and your kids will have ample room for setting up their building blocks and doll houses.
- Bar Area: When you invite guests over for a drink, charm them with a bar area in the basement. Along with buying new bar stools and coasters, you can furnish the area with your favorite sports memorabilia or vintage posters.
- Craft Room: Are your craft materials crammed in a closet? If you engage in hobbies such as scrapbooking, sewing, or woodcarving, your basement can be turned into a fully stocked craft room. Purchase a drafting table and shelves to organize all your materials.
- Home Theater: When your family can’t agree on a TV channel, a home theater in the basement comes in handy. The basement is not only great for storing DVDs and video games, but it also has fantastic acoustics for watching a movie.
- Game Room: Since finished basements are such a large area, they make a great place to put pool tables and poker tables. All your board games can be neatly organized in the area as well.
