Basement Remodel & Redesign Ideas
How to Transform Your Basement from Dingy to Decorative
Basements that are dreary and full of old clutter are now a thing of the past with DiFabion Remodeling! We believe that basements are much more than just a stockroom for old gym equipment, seasonal decorations, and boxes you never unpacked.
A finished, functional basement can provide efficient storage space, add valuable and livable square footage to the home, and even improve the quality of life for you and your family. To decide exactly how you want to remodel your basement, determine what your home is missing. If you have kids, perhaps a playroom/homework room would be best. Are you missing an entertainment space? What about a quiet place where you can go just to relax? No matter what you want to do with your basement, the experts at DiFabion can help.
Check out our favorite ideas for how to redesign your basement and get inspired!
Man Cave or She Shed
No matter if you’re single, recently married, have a family, or even retired, everyone needs a space all of their own they can go to unwind and relax. That’s why a basement is the perfect place to design your man cave, she shed, or both! Implement luxury vinyl plank flooring, a neutral but strong color palette, and an emphasis on sports or other interests. Top it all off with a mounted television and some comfy couches and chairs, and you have transformed your basement into a mature and well-designed man cave!
Perhaps a she shed is more your speed? Incorporate as much lighting as possible, design with colors that you love, add lots of shelving and storage for crafts, hobbies, or work-related items, and give yourself and guests plenty of comfortable spots to socialize with large couches and chairs.
Bar or Wine Cellar
If your home needs more entertainment space, consider remodeling your basement to incorporate a bar or wine cellar! With proper insulation and smart design, adding a bar or wine cellar to your basement is extremely doable! Once you determine where you want the bar to go and what shape you want, choose wine racks in a stainless steel or wood finish. Add dimmers to better control your lighting, plenty of storage space, a sink and fridge, and you have yourself a brand-new entertainment space. Don’t forget plenty of bar seating!
Is your family full of fitness fanatics? Perhaps you’re just tired of commuting to an overpriced gym and need something closer to home. Why not remodel your basement into a home gym? To create a space dedicated to fitness, proper ventilation, flooring, and lighting are necessary. Once the basics are completed, add large mirrors, a surround sound system, and the right gym equipment. Research gym equipment best suited for your workouts, and invest in the right machines. Throw in a mini fridge for your energy drinks and a TV, and you’re ready to go!
Guest or In-Law Suite
An extra space for guests or another bedroom for your growing family is a very popular choice for finished basements. To remodel your basement into an extra suite or bedroom, be sure proper insulation, lighting, and HVAC systems are implemented. Engineered flooring and new paint will breathe new life back into the space. Top it off with a king bed, a comfortable seating area, and a mounted television, and you have a new space straight out of a luxury hotel!
