When looking for space in the home to renovate there are two ways to go: upstairs or downstairs. It’s more of a judgment call than anything, and each gives the same reward – space. Originally created solely for storage, but today people often turn it into floor space as a games room or extra bedroom. Here are two ideas for remodeling your basement.
Basement Gym Renovation :
In today’s world, we’re all more health conscious, keeping count of the calories that enter the body and so on. This means that there has been an influx of people using the gym across the globe. However, this isn’t always an enjoyable way to end the day.
Why end your work day and then work your way through traffic to queue at the gym for the treadmill when you could do it in the comfort and privacy of your own home? For some, being in the gym can be annoying, boring and uncomfortable but in the home, you can work-out when you want and how you want.
With a gym on your doorstep your time will be easier to manage and if the day comes when you want to move home, this will add value to your property.
Basement Family Room Renovation :
With modern society as it is today, family time can be somewhat limited. An option for the basement is to renovate it so that it is a great place for the whole family to relax, enjoy and rest. The first, unenviable, task is to clear out the basement – you will be surprised at home much space there is once everything is out.
Next, you need to clean and prepare all the floors and walls in the basement. Vacuum, wipe down and de-cobweb the whole place. It is advised to have the room drywalled and painted a neutral color. Additionally, get hold of a dehumidifier to get rid of the excess moisture.
Finally, it’s time to be creative and add some family flair to the room. It depends on what you all enjoy, a big sofa with a huge screen can make it a home cinema. Alternatively, it could be more of a recreational family room with a pool table, music system and that sort of thing for all to use.
The beauty of a family room is that you can also entertain guests there when having gatherings and parties. It’s largely up to you what you have down there but they can even be sound-proofed if you think you might need it.
