Need More Usable Square Footage? Repurpose the Basement

Basement & Garage | Basement Living Systems

Nothing in life is as constant as change, especially when it comes to your ever-evolving family. Kids grow up and parents age. As one group departs, the other may take its place.

Spaces that were originally designed to support yesterday’s lifestyle may now be sitting unused, collecting dust or—in the case of that old abandoned basement playroom—becoming a dumping ground for miscellaneous clutter. Simply put: That house that was so perfect in the past may not be cutting it in the present. There is no need to call the realtor. Just look down. You are standing over an untapped design resource. With one phone call to the right contractor, that neglected basement can easily be transformed into your new favorite space. Your biggest problem will be deciding just how you want to use it.

For movie buffs, a home theater may be on the top of the list. Think plush seating, surround sound and a mega screen. You will experience an authentic movie going experience and you will never have to leave the house again. On game day, your neighbors will be standing in line. Simply put in a popcorn machine and you will not have to wonder where the teenagers are, because they will be safely curled up in a comfy chair next to you—munching freshly popped snacks.

If you would rather a rowing machine than a popcorn machine, why not create a customized home gym? State-of-the-art machines and a weight bench sound like just what the trainer ordered. The good news is you will avoid monthly dues. The bad news? No more excuses!

As more and more homeowners choose to work remotely, a fully outfitted home office may be a perfect addition. There is no reason why you could not combine an office and gym so you can work and workout at your leisure.

In its new incarnation, your basement can continue to be a playroom, but of an adult variety with a built-in bar, piped in music and plenty of comfy seating for friends and family. Your situation may demand a complete mother-in-law suite. Even if it is not built precisely for your mother-in-law, your home will have a stylish, comfortable living area that can accommodate short or long term guests.

The right basement refinishing professional can turn the outdated into the outstanding in a matter of weeks. The experts will replace mold-prone drywall from the existing basement walls with modular wall panels that repel moisture and prevent mold growth. By eliminating mold, the air quality of your basement will improve. In addition, these innovative modular wall panels feature R-value rated thermal and acoustic insulation. This acoustic insulation will absorb up to 95 percent of ambient sound.
