Imagine this, your house is alive and every room begins to speak. They are grateful to you because you treated them right, except one. As you have clicked the right link, you already know which room we are talking about. The room that is least used and it is spacious. The room that’s mostly dark and damp. The poor room, which more likely is your store room or a laundry. The abandoned sad space, yearning for you to notice it for a long time. If you have just agreed with me, then it’s time for your basement renovations.
Basement as a guest room
Most of the time, families don’t visit each other because they don’t have a place to stay for a night. It’s true and it’s sad. We live in a world where humanity is almost dying. Children are either on the phone or computer. They barely go out. So, before they completely get lost in the technology parents must take them to their grandparents, aunties and uncles. Where would they stay, if they don’t have enough room? This when the basement calls you. Whenever you have a family or a friend they can always sleep in your renovated basement or you can simply rent them for extra money.
Basement as a study or an office room
This is probably one of my favourite ideas. Having a basement for study is perfect for people who enjoy solitude and work from home. There are a very few things in life that are only possible while relaxing indoors. Having space without a lot of interruptions and to be able to stretch your legs while reading. While your children or a spouse or a pet is running around the house, your basement could be your haven. Our bedrooms do offer us some privacy but it is not an ideal place to work or read. So, if your basement is empty with nothing but creepy cobwebs, it’s time to clear that space, chase away the spider. Then pick up your phone and call the contractor or a basement finisher or just do it yourself. Don’t forget to light it up, or else you won’t enjoy reading or having a work space in an obscure room.
Basement as a home theatre
If you are someone who loves to throw slumber parties or a sleepover and host a movie night, this idea is perfect for you. You don’t have to be a teenager to do so. You can also enjoy a family movie night together. If you are a game savvy and love playing games on s big screen. This could be an optimum choice for you too. You can install some couches to bring that theatre feel in that space and add the lights and of course, the sound system. Make sure the walls are properly insulated that not only keep the warmth inside but also the sound.
So, dust the space or get it dusted. Rearrange your laundry space and bring back some charm into the empty space that you left ignored for a long time. Start planning your basement renovations and share your stories with the world.
