Read on to understand the possibilities of your lower level remodel.
1. A Lower Level Theater
What’s more convenient than an at home movie theater? A lower level theater is a great space for the entire family to gather and enjoy each other. An ultimate media room can be equipped with a TV projector, a surround-sound system, reclining movie theater chairs, and even a popcorn machine. As HGTV explains, the ideal space for a home theater is a space that is relatively isolated from the rest of the home. This allows for a fully immersive experience that makes you feel like you are in an actual movie theater. HGTV also tell us that with a lower level theater, it is important that your focus is on insulation to keep the booming movie sounds from disturbing the other areas of the home.
2. An Exercise Room
Exercise can be made easy when you have an exercise room that is steps from your bedroom.
If you hate heading to the gym, make your basement a fitness haven that features all your favorite equipment. A lower level home gym can increase your exercise efficiency, while still maintaining the beautiful aesthetics of your first and second floors.
Airoom has completed numerous lower level remodels. Look at this Long Grove home that transformed their lower level into a beautiful and functional space. Before this remodel, this lower level was an unused space that served as a storage for dusty boxes and outdated exercise equipment. However, after a stunning remodel, this home was upgraded with an indoor pool, sauna, and fitness room for all their spa needs.
3. A Guest Suite
A guest suite is a great way to make your house guests feel comfortable and allow them a space of their own. As Decoist explains, a crucial element to consider when designing a lower level bedroom is to ensure there is sufficient insulation. Insulation is key to keeping the bedroom cool during the summers and warm during the winters.
4. A Game Room
When finishing a basement, you might want to consider the benefits of a game room. Whether it be a children’s birthday party or cocktail hour for the adults, a game room can serve as a space the entire family can take advantage of. Your lower level can be equipped with a pool table, shuffleboard, arcade games, a chess table, just about anything you can imagine.
