15 Basement Remodel Ideas
Considering finishing or remodeling your basement? You’ve come to the right place! It’s important to know what’s truly possible with your design before you start working with a designer.
Here are 15 basement design ideas to get you inspired for your upcoming project:
A bar is a great way to turn your outdated or unfinished basement into a place for friends and family to gather. Create a space that’s perfect for entertaining, or a refreshment station for the whole family. Wet bars are highly customizable and a great focal point to build your basement around. With a design-build partner, you’ll be able to apply your favorite design style for a custom bar you’ll love for years to come.
Add a Bathroom
Design an oasis into your basement. Adding a bathroom to your basement allows you to apply your ideal design styles to a beautiful new bathroom. A basement bathroom adds completion and convenience to the function of your space. Choose a clean, spa-like feel or get creative with contemporary pops of color — it’s your choice!
Build Extra Rooms
Would your household benefit from an extra bedroom in your basement? How about an in-law suite to give your basement an apartment living feel? It’s important to consider function, in addition to design, when crafting your perfect basement.
Custom basement remodels allow you to craft a space that’s not only beautiful but functional. You can make sure every room in your basement provides value by adding bedrooms, bathrooms, offices and more.
Thinking about putting a bar in your basement? Take your bar area to the next level by building a wine cellar into your basement, too! Work with your designer to create something that is the right size, look, function for your personal wine collection.
Choose between something as complex as a temperature-controlled walk-in room to a storage closet perfect for keeping your wine tucked away. Wine cellars are highly customizable and built to add beautiful, functional storage into your basement.
Go beyond the standard build of basement stairs and create a staircase that stuns. Upgraded entryways to your basement can really open up your space and give it a sense of luxury. Choose from open, glass staircases, or traditional wood banisters to tie your upstairs and downstairs together and add a touch of style to your basement remodel.
Do you have a friend or a family member living in your basement space? Convert your basement into “apartment living” with the help of a kitchenette. Kitchenettes give a feel of completion and convenience to those living in your basement space or for guests staying in your extra bedroom.
Take your family entertainment space to the next level with a custom home theater. Bring the cinema home to you by building a beautiful mini theater in place of a guest bedroom. Home theaters also pose a great opportunity to get extra creative with your design!
Home gyms are a creative, useful way to convert a guest bedroom space into a home amenity that creates convenience and function for your home. Bring your workout right into your home and save on expensive membership costs to gyms. Home gyms can be custom-designed to fit the way you like to exercise, whether that’s a cardio space, weights, or a mini yoga studio! With a basement remodel, you can customize every space of your home to exactly match your lifestyle, including your home gym.
Entertainment spaces for playing games, watching sports, or enjoying movies with family are very common elements of many basement designs. It’s important to think about how your family will best benefit from an entertainment space, and what you’d like to custom-fit to your lifestyle.
Beams and Ceiling Detail
You may not have immediately considered your ceiling a great design opportunity, but the use of beams and unique ceiling detail can truly take your basement to the next level. Add a pop of color with brightly wrapped ceiling beams, or add a sense of elegance with arches and insets. Ask your designer how you can utilize ceiling design to give your basement a sense of luxury.
Special features that create fun and convenience in your basement are very popular with many of our clients. Bookcase doors, for instance, can conceal storage areas, provide more storage in the door, and make for a great ice breaker when having guests over! Ask your designer what features you can add to your project to hide entrances to unsightly rooms or add a unique touch that’s fit just for your family.
Pops of Color
When crafting a custom space, you have the opportunity to get creative, fun, and funky! If you don’t love a traditional design and want a one-of-a-kind color palette in your basement, your designer has your back. Using a unique pop of color is one easy way to do that.
Warm, Woodsy Vibe
Bring the best of the outdoors home to you! Give your basement a classy cabin feel with warm woods and a cozy design paired with beautiful, luxury finishes. Whether you want to make your home feel like a cabin tucked into the mountains, or a bright lakehouse perfect for the summer, a wood-focused design style can make your space cozy and warm year-round.
Bright Colors and Contemporary Design
As mentioned before, sky is the limit with your design style! Your design-build partner is there to create a one-of-a-kind basement just for you. Challenge yourself to browse Pinterest, Instagram, and Houzz to figure out your ideal style and what features you want to see to make your space pop.
Clean and Sleek
Give a luxurious feel to your space by utilizing bright whites, luxury finishes, and high-quality features and furniture. A monochromatic design style can easily transform an unfinished basement into a high-end lounge space.
