A finished basement is one of the best ways to add additional living space to your home. The basement can be used as a TV room, bar, playroom, gym, an in-law suite, and much more! When remodeling your basement, be sure to keep these top design trends in mind to get the most out of the space.
Homes used to be closed off from each other, but open floor plans are now becoming the norm in all houses. An open concept allows you to pass freely from one area to another, which is perfect for a large basement. One area of your basement can be for watching TV and movies with a big, comfy couch, another can be home to a bar or kitchenette for entertaining, and another area for a game room with a pool table. This way, everyone can enjoy different areas of the basement without being closed off from one another. Open concepts are also great for smaller basements, as you don’t have to take away any square footage with walls.
If you always have overnight guests or are planning for an older relative to stay with you, the basement is the perfect place for an in-law suite. Unlike a typical guest room, the suite includes a private bedroom, bathroom, and kitchenette. This design trend is not suitable for everyone, but if you have family and guests for an extended time, the remodeling your basement is a great way to make them feel comfortable.
If your home is built on a sloping lot of hillside and only part of your basement is underground, think about remodeling with a walkout basement! The advantage is a lot of natural light for your basement, with the option to access it directly from outside. Include large doors and windows to bring the outside in and create a beautiful living space used for dining, entertaining, and more! Another plus with this exciting design element is that it will add a lot of value to your home if you are planning to sell.
