If you're a movie buff, isn't it time you had a screening room where your family and friends can relax and enjoy the best that Hollywood has to offer?
Built-in cabinetry on either side of a big flat-screen TV will enable you to hide wiring and store DVDs. Put ceiling and wall sconce lights on separate switches so you can turn the brighter ceiling lights off during the movie. Don't forget to make room for reclining lounge chairs with small side tables for popcorn and beverages.
The basement is a perfect location for a basement bar where family and friends can gather to enjoy a nice cocktail together.
Splurge on a neon sign to set the mood, and consider adding a basement bathroom to eliminate trips upstairs. Last but not least: a compact refrigerator and plenty of seating.
Your basement's concrete slab floor makes a great base for even the most hardcore weight-training and fitness equipment.
With a small flat-screen TV and DVD player, you can get entertained while you train. Add a basement bathroom or even a small sauna to create your own health spa.
With a pool table as the centerpiece of a finished basement, you're sure to enjoy many hours of relaxation and entertainment.
Of course you'll need a special stained glass light over the pool table. Consider putting other lights on dimmers. For the look of genuine wood flooring with none of the maintenance and moisture issues, try MillCreek flooring.
Is it time for your garage band to become an underground success? A well-designed finished basement might be just the ticket.
Make sure the music room has a door that can be shut, and use sound-blocking materials to help contain the noise. These materials can be found online.
You'll be surprised at how productive you can be in a basement office, away from upstairs distractions.
Avoid eye strain by combining glare-free overhead lighting with good task lighting. ThermalDry® floor tiles provide an easy-to-clean floor surface that office chairs love to roll on.
If you need another bedroom, don't spend big bucks on an addition. Instead, take advantage of the space you've already paid for.
Chances are you'll need at least one larger basement window to meet building code requirements for safe egress. For that purpose, we offer energy-efficient windows. Also, consider adding a basement bathroom or even a small kitchen.
If you're struggling to find space for the kids to play without destroying the upstairs, a basement play area might be just what you need to give the rest of your house a rest.
Strong, impact-resistant TBF wall panels will take all the abuse kids can dish out. You'll also appreciate ThermalDry® carpet tiles to create a comfortable floor that resists stains, moisture damage and mold.
