Basement Finishing

Whether you have a basement that’s unfinished or finished but being used only for storage, you’re in need of a basement finishing project. Of course, first you’ll need to decide what to do with the extra space. After ensuring it’s waterproofed, you can make plans to turn it into a functional space, where you and your family can spend many enjoyable hours. Here are a couple of ideas to get you started planning.

Wine Cellar

If you enjoy entertaining or enjoy wine with your meals, a wine cellar is the perfect use of your basement space. During your remodeling project, your contractor can build special wine racks to display your collection. A contractor can section off part of your basement and install temperature regulators to keep your wines at the perfect temperature at all times.

Second Kitchen

“My kitchen is too big,” said no one ever. If you do a lot of entertaining or host family holidays, you’re always looking for additional counter space, cabinets, refrigerator room, oven space and dishwasher racks. Installing a second kitchen in your finished basement provides you with all the cooking space you’ll ever need.

Entertainment Room

Everyone dreams of having a movie theater in their home and this is your chance to do just that. You can bring in a projector and surround sound system. Your contractor can create a sloped design in your basement to give you that stadium feeling and ensure everyone has a great view no matter where they sit. You can add a wet bar with small refrigerator and microwave for snacks during the films.
