The Sky is the Limit with Basement Redesign

Basements offer a unique opportunity to dream big in a large space.  While many basements have been viewed as a storage space, modern trends are moving well beyond storage and into a functional, beautiful living area.  Don’t let the thought of finishing an unfinished basement overwhelm you, it’s like a blank canvas, just waiting for your dream to become reality.  For finished basements that need updating, modern styles can bring your basement up and out of the darkness and into a bright living space to enjoy for years to come.

Functional Living Rooms and Family Rooms

A common basement redesign is to create a functional living space the whole family can enjoy.  Updates to flooring, installing custom cabinetry, and adding family entertainment systems can make your basement one of the most used areas of your home.  Matching your basement design to the rest of your home makes the space feel like a well-incorporated area of your home where family and friends can enjoy each other’s company.  Adding custom cabinetry means you can still have ample storage while maintaining a tidy and modern living space.

Gather Friends at a Bar and Entertainment Space

Been dreaming of that home brewery?  Need a modern bar space to entertain friends with wine and cocktails?  Modern and beautiful finishes can be brought into your basement to make your basement an inviting place to congregate.  Stylish countertops paired with a contemporary sink and custom cabinets will elevate your basement bar.  So grab your favorite drinks, a few garnishes, and call up your friends to enjoy your new bar space.

Encourage Fun with Play Rooms and Game Rooms

Family-friendly spaces offer more space to spread out and enjoy your home.  Make your basement into a bright and colorful playroom with playful finishes and textures, custom cabinets to store every toy and game, and cheerful accents that invite imaginations to run wild.  For the older kids and those young at heart, create a game room and add a more mature design element with bold and beautiful color choices, classic flooring, and cabinetry to keep the space clean and sleek.   Built-in cabinets to organize gaming supplies and entertainment systems means a convenient way to store everything you need to enjoy your basement with friends and family.

Get Fit at Home with a Home Fitness Center

Bring the gym home with durable and long-lasting flooring, custom cabinets to store your fitness equipment, a sound system to create the atmosphere you desire, and design elements that motivate you.   Through quality materials, lighting to set the mood, and comfortable airflow, your basement can become the fitness studio you’ve always wanted.  Whether you are looking for a peaceful yoga studio or a place to get in some intense lifting or cardio sessions, design your basement for your individual fitness needs!

Inspire Creativity with Hobby Rooms and Music Studios

Need more space for your hobby?  Have a musician in the family?  Basements provide a great opportunity to create a space for these fun elements of our lives.  Design a basement space that stores your hobby supplies in a convenient and beautiful way while providing a workspace specially designed for the hobby you love.  For the musicians, a home recording studio or a well-designed practice space can allow hours of practice without interfering with others in the home.  Custom storage cabinets for your music room allow you to safely store your instruments and supplies while maintaining a tidy space.
