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!
Dont condemn yourself; there are plenty of ways that you can get the results that you want without driving yourself crazy. Where are the areas that your basement could use some finishing touches and make your basement remodeling a grade-A project When youve found the right remodeling contractor to help you locate the finishing touches that can really add that flare to your basement that youve been looking for, then you are all set to go! The Support Beam Most basements have a few randomly positioned posts that just tend to get in the way and take away from the beauty of the basement. If your basement has already been finished, and youre trying to find ways to make it a bit fresher and have that added appeal then you should consider working with what youve got! This means, dont look at those poles with disgust and spend all your time worrying about how ugly they are, do something about what it is that you dont like about them.
Have fun with the staircase, it doesnt have to just be something that you ignore as you enter a room, but it can be what draws you to want to go there in the first place! Windows Not just in the basement, but throughout the whole home; windows seem to be forgotten. Sure, curtains, and window stickies are popular, but replacing and updating windows tend to be the homeowners last resort. Maybe they arent fun enough for you If thats the case, then have some fun! Windows can be a beautiful addition to your basement, even though most basements dont have too many windows; they do tend to have one. If that window has been around since the dark ages, odds are your energy bill could probably go down if you just replaced your window. Some older windows are no longer in good condition so air escapes when you want it to stay in the room.
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.
