How to Finish your Unfinished BasementOctober 9, 2014
Moving into a new house is exciting, even with an unfinished basement. At first, many improvement ideas come to mind: man cave, workout center, basement bar and entertainment area, etc. While all of those are a great idea at the time, the fact of the matter is, most of the time an unfinished basement just turns into a simple storage area.
The basement of your house has a lot of potential and is a lot cheaper to renovate than to build an addition onto your house. Don’t get discouraged by the amount of work it takes; whether it’s a small renovation or a large-scale project, once you’re finished, you’ll be proud of what you’ve accomplished.
Before you start, make sure you inspect your basement and make sure what you envision is accomplishable. Be sure to plan out each and every aspect including lighting and placement of additions, and be aware of any pre-determined damage that could be involved. For more ideas refer to this guide.
Remember to think about the whole family. You may be excited to build a man cave, but if you have a wife and children, that might not be the best use of the space. Instead, consider building something for everyone to enjoy – bar with your favorite sports theme, a game room for the kids with a flat screen to watch the big game and play video games, or a workout center for you and your wife to enjoy. If designed correctly, the basement could be the favorite room in the house for everyone.
