Traditionally, basements are dark and damp areas that can't be used as storage and living space. That is the main reason why some people consider their existing cellar absolutely unfit for storage space, living room, home office, games room, home bar, bathroom, kitchen, and other types of rooms.
At a time when we’re experiencing residential spatial shortages, the easier and cheaper option is to convert your basement into an extra living space, rather than having to relocate.
Whether you’re short of storage space or have a more ambitious project in mind, there are tonnes of fun and practical ways you can transform your basement. Rather than up sticks and move, why not save the hassle and money, and add value to your home with one of these basement conversions.
It can be a home office, study room, or anything you need it to be for you to have a proper place to do your hobbies and get creative and productive. Working in your bedroom or living room may be the culprit for your stress. So if you have a basement, designate it as the family workspace. This way, you can separate work and family time.
This makes them suitable to be used as a utility or extra storage room. Although these rooms are practical and essential for the home, they often aren’t the tidiest.
Because of this, many opt to have their utility room out of the way of the rest of the household. This way, they are able to give the grand tour of their proud home, the living room, kitchen, and bedroom, without having to introduce their guests to the often chaotic and disorganized nature of the utility or storage room.
People like to keep this part of the home separate from rooms made for relaxation and leisure.
Unfortunately, not every property has enough space that can be used for that purpose. But if you have a basement and still do not know how to use it, think about turning it into a guest room. Think well about what your guests might need. Make a project and try to realize it in the best possible way. If pulling out the sofa bed in the living room won’t cut it, a basement conversion may be the way to go. You can also install an ensuite if you really want your guests to feel at home.
If we have limited space it’s hard to justify having a home cinema in place of a bedroom or the kitchen. The basement is a practical location for a home cinema. It is more secluded than a room situated at ground level or above, meaning you’re less likely to be disturbed by external noise or from your property. Many basements also have fewer windows, meaning it is easier to stop external light, giving your home cinema that genuine, blackout feel.
Most people leave busy lives. It can be hard for them to find enough time to go to the gym. Home gyms have many great benefits. If you do not like the idea of sharing equipment with other people, building a home gym is a great option. You will set your own rules and exercise any time you want. Think well about what types of exercises you are planning to do and choose the right equipment for your gym.
There’s also no waiting to use the equipment you need, and you get to control the music playing.
