“Don’t Waste Your Time Selecting the Wrong Contractor!”


What are some unique finished basement ideas?

Finishing a basement offers a world of opportunities for your home. After the renovation, you have a massive new space to use. So that it does not go to waste, consider using one of the following finished basement ideas.

Finished Basement IdeasHome Theater

Have you always wanted to build the ultimate home entertainment system, but never had the room? An insulated basement provides the perfect area where you have control over the light and sound, and you do not have to worry about disturbing people in adjacent rooms. You could even install your own digital projector and project films onto an empty wall or onto a retractable screen. Go all out and include a concession stand in the basement design.

Additional Bedroom

Whether you frequently have guests over or have a family member in need of his own room, finishing the basement makes it possible to create the best room in the house. Depending upon the size of the basement, you could potentially build a bathroom and/or a small kitchenette and create a basement apartment.

Basement Bar

Many finished basement ideas incorporate a bar. If the newly renovated basement is intended to be a place for entertaining, it makes perfect sense to construct a bar area with seating and plenty of space for snacks and drinks. You can use the surrounding space to include more barroom fare, such as a flat screen TV and some table games.

Ultimate Playroom

Do your kids get restless throughout cold Toronto winters? Your finished basement could become your new recreation room where they can stay busy. For young children, you can create a massive play area with mats, blocks, toy car racetracks, and other toddler friendly items. You can keep older kids entertained with table tennis, dartboards, and space for board games.

Get Organized

So, your basement may be serving as a storage space before your renovations, but it could be serving you as a much more useful organizational tool. You can up your productivity by installing custom shelves, cabinets, and other storage compartments in your basement. Add a desk to the space and your finished basement can double as an office or craft area.

Studio Space

If you are interested in truly getting creative with your finished basement ideas, you can turn this space into your own private studio. Depending upon your passion and craft, your basement can double as a photo, art, dance, film, or recording studio. Have your friends over for band practice and a recording session at your place.

Private Gym

You would no longer have an excuse not to get to the gym if your gym was right down a set of stairs in your home. Exercise equipment is always nice to have at home, but most of it requires too much space. A finished basement is an excellent place to finally be able to fit a treadmill, free weights, mats, and other workout materials.

If you would like to put any of the above ideas into action, but you’re not sure how to make it happen, The Reno Pros can help you put a plan into action and tailor finished basement ideas to your needs.
