According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 9% of all homes in the United States have a finished basement in 2021, and that number is growing. With that in mind, it’s no wonder that basement remodels are so popular. A custom basement remodel is a homeowner’s dream. If you’re considering having your basement done, here are a few ideas to include that will really make the remodel a special addition to your home.
Wet bars are a popular addition to many remodeled basements. A wet bar usually is built with the intention of hosting people. If you want to remodel your basement to have parties that require a bar, or just want it for your own pleasures, a wet bar is a great idea. Feel free to work with your contractors to design it to your liking.
Having a recreation room is a great way to entertain yourself during the slow times of the year. Rec rooms can include anything from a pool table to a home theatre, so once you decide what you like, bring up the idea to your contractor to ensure that it’s constructed just how you want it.
Family rooms can be a general concept, but they usually include a sofa or two, a television, a coffee table, and a fireplace. With this in mind, your customized family room can contain anything you wish. If you don’t want your family room to have a fireplace, or you’d rather have multiple fireplaces, your basement renovation company can do that for you. With a family room comes the implication of hosting guests or getting the family together to spend quality time with each other. As long as your family room holds places for people to sit and room for everyone, you can customize it to your liking.
If your resolution for the new year is to work out regularly, then adding a home gym to your basement remodel is a great way to fulfill it. With a home gym comes equipment, so you may want to discuss building some equipment into the remodel to secure them in place. Talk to your contractors if this sounds like something up your alley.
