If you arent ready to say goodbye to your white walls yet, there are other ways to add color to your basement. Fit a festive slip cover over a piece of upholstered furniture, or paint a piece of wood or metal furniture. Throw pillows and coordinating area rugs are also a good way to add personality to your (now favorite) room, and they also give people a place to sit on the floor. Dont forget to add artwork. Either hang up something you already own, or have some of your favorite personal photos enlarged and framed. If choosing a paint color scares you, and selecting furniture makes you dizzy, consider consulting a decorator. Decorators are well trained, and they often come up with ideas that you wouldnt have thought of. Your decorator can help you determine what look you are trying to achieve and what colors and styles would be most suitable for your space.
Doors Did you ever think that a door in a basement, or any room for that matter, was particularly a big deal Most people probably wouldnt die for a door, but maybe for the right door some would be tempted. Sometimes we just dont know about something, if we just havent heard about it! There are so many kinds of doors out there. You can choose your material, you can choose where you want the hinge, how you want it to open, color, design; you name it and the right contractor can find it for you. If you recall the saying, the eyes are the doorway to a persons soul, then you can imagine that doors can tell a lot about what is inside. Dont sell your room short; choose a beautiful door to add to your freshly finished basement. Now youve heard! Staircases You want to make your basement a little bit more attractive. You want more than just a finished basement, you want something special. So, youre looking around and nothing looks old, or out of whack, but there is that small shabby staircase. A staircase doesnt have to be an afterthought, but it can be the magic touch that takes your basement from a beautiful home to an even more magical basement. If you want your basement to be a modern space, then choose a design and style that suits your design goal of having a city-modern feel. But, if you have a cabin and you want something a bit rustic, then maybe utilize some antlers for an interesting effect.
If your home has space in the underground that is left unfinished during construction, you would have probably used that space as a dumping area to stuff various items. However, what many people do not realize is that their unfinished basement can be converted into an attractive living space with some effort. If you have not considered finishing your basement, you should do so to enjoy the extra space you have been wasting all these years. Basement remodeling significantly increases the resale value of your home, because anyone will want a professionally finished basement. Remodeling the basement is not an easy task, because you have to first come up with an idea of what you want to do with your basement. The walls and floors will be already in place, but after years of usage without any maintenance, moulds and mildew might have formed. Repairing the walls, ceiling and floor are often one of the major tasks involved in basement remodeling. A new foundation need not be laid for remodeling the basement and hence, you can start working on other aspects of the project.
Perhaps youre a fan of billiards. Invest in a pool table so that you can invite your friends over for a few games. Measure the room first to make sure that it is suitable for the size table you are buying. If you always want to see the latest DVD release, consider purchasing an entertainment center with surround sound, and transform a portion of your basement into a home theatre. If you outfit your basement with the things you love, you are undoubtedly going to find yourself wanting to spend a lot of time there...and your friends probably will too! One of the great dangers of basement ownership is that it tends to be a magnet for useless junk. If you have a separate area of your basement strictly for storage, you will not be tempted to hang on to so much, and you will find that it is much easier to organize the stuff you do choose to keep. Ideally, you would build a separate room in the corner of your basement to keep stored items out of site. If this isnt possible, try to think of other ways you can hide items while still keeping them organized. Dont sacrifice your personal convenience for aesthetics. Form follows function. So, take a trip downstairs and start dreaming about the basement that is perfect for you!
