Basement Finishing Plans

Wonder where to go for basement finishing plans?

You’ve decided you’d like to revamp your lower level – it sure is cheaper than moving, and you’re tired of the unused space downstairs!

But where do you start?

I suggest starting with a list of ideas that you can then tweak according to your own specific needs and desires.

For instance, you might want to add primarily practical rooms to your basement – a laundry room, a mud room for the kids to leave their dirty shoes after playing outside, an office space, or an extra kitchen or bathroom.

A bigger space to accommodate extra guests for holidays can be a sanity saver. Or perhaps an extra bedroom for your teen son is in order – so he doesn’t fight with your daughter (or other son) every morning before school.

Or you may long for some relaxing space for the entire family. How about a recreation or game room?

Or an entertainment center with a wide screen TV and a comfy curl-around couch?

Or perhaps you’d prefer some “alone” space such as a scrapbooking or sewing room for mom, or a workshop for dad….or even a “man-cave” for entertaining teen or adult males during football or basketball season (or video game contests).

The possibilities are endless!

But this is where your brainstorming begins. Think about what would be ideal for your own family’s needs and your desires for your basement finishing plans.

Then you can go more into detail to find what ideas appeal to you, and what it would take to see them to completion.

The truth is, renovating your already-owned existing space is so much less expensive than buying a bigger home. But revamping or transforming your lower level space can feel like you're in a new home for a long time after your new build is completed!
