If you’re thinking about renovating your home, it’s worth focusing on the basement.
You cook food in your kitchen, sleep in your bedroom, and watch TV in your living room. What do you do in your basement?
There is an almost limitless amount of possibilities, which makes the project so exciting. I’m sure you have a few ideas in mind, but let’s discuss some popular ones that will hopefully get your imagination running wild.
1. Working In A Modern Home Office
If you found an ultimate guide for basement renovation projects, the number one thing on the list would be a home office. It would probably include a kitchen and bathroom, so you wouldn’t need to go upstairs while working.
It would be a good idea to keep the door at the top of your basement stairs locked. Install a door leading straight out of your basement. You could enter from outside every day to keep your home and work life separate.
2. Make Sure You Stay Fit + Healthy
The pandemic has taught us it’s a good idea to be fit and healthy, but it’s also shown us that a public gym isn’t the best place to do it. If you’ve been in the past, can you imagine how much random sweat touched your skin?
Having a home gym in finished basements is the best course of action. It will be large enough to get lots of exercise equipment, and you won’t need to risk getting sick. You won’t need to find the motivation to train anymore.
3. Learn How To Play An Instrument
Now is the time to learn how to play a musical instrument, and the basement is the best place to do it. You can install soundproofing on the ceiling and walls, so you won’t disturb family members when they’re watching TV.
I think your neighbors will appreciate the fact they won’t hear anything too, especially if you’re not very good. If you invite your friends over to jam, you can create your own band, which will bring great joy to your life.
4. Become A Creative Artistic Genius
Wannabe artists dream of having their own art studio where they can let their imaginations run wild. You have the potential to build one right now, which is ideal if you love art. Think of all the wonderful paintings you can create.
You will even have enough room to sculpt statues, make pottery, or do any other artistic endeavors you are passionate about. Don’t worry if you don’t have any special skills. Once you have an art studio, you’ll have time to practice.
5. Do Something Special For Your Kids
Did your parents create anything special for you when you were young? It was different in the old days because kids were allowed to play outside, so you didn’t need a basement playroom, but kids don’t wander the streets anymore.
I bet they would love a jungle gym in the basement to climb around like little monkeys all day. It would be a great place to store all their toys, which means you wouldn’t need to clean their bedrooms non-stop.
