What room would you say is the most boring in your home? If you have an unfinished basement, then the answer was most likely just that. Maybe you don’t even consider an unfinished basement a room so you chose the attic instead. You should work with professional basement contractors because it’s way better to get your basement renovated than another other room in your home.
A damp, cluttered basement doesn’t do much for the fun, comfort, productivity, or value of your home. Sure, it serves a purpose, but it could still serve that purpose with the proper flooring, insulated walls and decent lighting.
A basement could easily become a second living room or kitchen. You could bring down some games and a pool table to convert it into an entertainment room. You could even have a bar built so the adults can have a room to themselves. Once you’ve decided to have your basement finished, the next question is what are you going to do with space? There are a lot of fun ideas floating around. If you have a big family, you could convert the room into a large family fun room.
The Family Fun Room
Creating a fun room for the family or primarily for the kids isn’t as difficult as it might sound. It mostly involves choices in décor and entertainment, rather than actual home remodeling. One idea you might consider is the chalkboard wall. This paint turns just about any surface into a cleanable chalkboard. Painting one or two walls with this opens the door to a lot of fun possibilities.
You could also have a section at the end of the basement converted into a small separate room that resembles a house. A wall could be erected with shingles, a front door, and a window. Inside could resemble a living room and kitchen area. It’s perfect for those kids who really love to play house.
Explore New Ideas with Basement Contractors
Hiring professional basement contractors can make all the difference. If a family fun room doesn’t interest you, there are still a lot of other possibilities. You could take the standard approach and convert the finished basement into one or two bedrooms, depending on the size. Or you could convert it into a single room with its own private bathroom and kitchen area.
Maybe you like the idea of a fun room, but you want the adults involved as well. You could convert the basement into an entertainment room complete with television, audio, and some games like pool that the adults can enjoy too. Make it the ultimate entertainment center for the entire family. Just don’t forget to throw in additional soundproofing for that ultimate home theater effect.
