A basement may be out of sight, but it shouldn’t be kept out of mind. Basements offer a tremendous amount of extra living space to those who have them. All it takes is a little bit of imagination and a basement remodel or renovation to transform your unfinished basement and maximize your home’s living space. Don’t let your basement go to waste! From personal home theatres to guest rooms, here are our top 5 basement renovation ideas.

Home Gym

If you’re like most people, your basement is one of the most seldom-used rooms in your home. So, why not consider converting it into your very own home gym? Creating a home gym involves more than just tossing in a few pieces of exercise equipment and calling it done, however. After all, who wants to work out in a dark, dingy basement? Whether you’re looking to get a quick workout in or replace your gym membership, a basement renovation can help you turn your unfinished basement into the gym of your dreams.

Home Theatre

Why have one living room when you can have two? Renovating or remodeling your basement into a home theatre is the perfect way to turn dark, windowless basements into the perfect spot to gather with family or entertain friends. What’s more, home theater basement renovations can be as simple or as complicated as you want. From adding widescreens and long couches to elevated seating and full projector systems, there are tons of ways you can renovate your basement into the ultimate home theatre.  

Game Room

Game rooms are great for relaxing and socializing, so it stands to reason that they’re some of the most popular basement renovations. Loved by both kids and adults alike, game rooms can be fitted with anything from classic foosball and ping pong tables to full-sized arcade games and the latest game consoles. Not only do basement game room renovations add value to your home, but you’ll be creating a space to make cherished family memories for years to come.  

Home Office

The biggest advantage of a home office basement renovation or remodel is that it effectively separates your workspace from your living space. Something which anyone who’s recently spent time working from should understand and appreciate. With your basement being somewhat isolated from the rest of your home, turning it into a home office eliminates most of the distractions and temptations that come with working from your bedroom or living room. So, whether you work from home full-time or for a couple of hours a week, renovating your unused basement into a home office is certainly worth considering.

Guest Room

A guest room basement renovation is ideal for adding extra living space without adding a home addition or extension. Create more sleeping space for a growing family, accommodate out-of-town guests, or rent out the space for some extra income — the choice is yours! Turning your basement into a guestroom adds privacy for both guests and homeowners and is a great way to add value to your home.
