How to Make Your Basement the Best Space in the House


Make your basement a place where you and your family want to spend as much time as you possibly can.

Your basement can be easily pushed to the bottom of your home remodeling list. Since your basement isn’t the first room you see every day when coming home from work or picking up your kids from school, the upkeep of your basement can fall to the wayside. But your basement is the best way to maximize the square footage of your home. Make your basement a place where you and your family want to spend as much time as you can. Here are a few trends to keep in mind when considering the best way to remodel your basement.

Walkouts Work

If you have the opportunity to have a walkout basement, go for it. Walkout basements make everything easier. From letting your dog out quickly and securely in the backyard to managing your kids’ mess as they come in from muddy outdoor play dates, a walkout basement makes your outdoor space that much more accessible. If you desire a walkout basement, but are unsure of whether or not your home can manage it, call a professional remodeling business, and they can help you out.

Key to Open-Concept

Open-concept spaces might seem like a thing of the past, but they are still very much on-trend. Opening up the space in your basement will allow it to feel larger and less cramped. Even if your home’s general style is more traditional, an open-concept basement will absolutely work with the rest of your home. If considering this design, it’s best to have purposes for each designated area. Think of keeping the gaming and theater space in one area and your home office in another. Designate a specific area for your children’s’ toys and games while leaving the sitting space clutter free. This will make an open plan feel cozy and warm, even in the colder months.

Mini Pub Elegance

A newer trend in home basement remodeling is transforming your cluttered, toy-riddled basement into an elegant space for both the adults and children in your family. Consider turning your bland basement into a space with small high-top tables and stools. Look for sconces that will keep the basement feeling like an old-fashioned pub with modern elegance.
