Have you ever thought about how much space your home’s basement encompasses? In most homes, the basement square footage is equal to the size of the main floor, so this is quite a bit of space that could be utilized. In fact, if it is that large, you could easily create an entire living space to lease out. The possibilities are endless when it comes to what you can do with a finished basement, but here are a few ideas that just might inspire you:
- New master bedroom – Privacy can be an issue, especially with a floor plan where the master bedroom is not separated from the other bedrooms. You could easily give up the master bedroom upstairs to your oldest child or convert it for another use while gaining the space and privacy you need in the finished basement.
- Entertainment room – Families are spending more time at home these days, and your family room may not have the space you need for that large screen television and sectional sofa you’d like to have. A finished basement gives you all the space you need for a killer entertainment and media room that will make movie night so much more fun.
- Game room –A game room complete with a pool table, air hockey table, dart board, video game system, large table for board games, and other features is just what you need for family fun and entertaining friends. Put in a bar area, bathroom, and other features to make it exactly what you’d enjoy the most.
