Whether you’re converting an existing cellar or considering building a basement into your property, this is a room that lends itself to a wide variety of uses. Whereas lofts are often transformed into bedrooms or bathrooms, a basement is located amidst the main living areas of a property, making it a very adaptable space.
A second sitting room or extra bathroom may seem like the most logical way to utilise this new space- but why not get creative? See this conversion as a means to enhancing your lifestyle and you’ll see that the choices and opportunities are endless. Need a hand getting your creative juices flowing? Below are four innovative ideas on how to get the most out of your basement conversion.
Traditionally, cellars are used as storage spaces for wine as they are cool in temperature and out of direct sunlight. So, why not expand on this idea and transform your cellar into a large kitchen pantry? If you’re a budding chef whose creativity has been stunted by a lack of space, now’s the time to bring this hobby back to life. A cool and spacious basement could be the perfect storage space for wine, foodstuffs and kitchen equipment, allowing you to get back in touch with your amazing culinary skills.
If you’re a fitness enthusiast with no room to work out, a home gym could be the perfect solution. Purchase some machines cheaply online and convert your basement into your very own personal exercise space. Dragging yourself to the gym after a long day at work is difficult at the best of times, and memberships often cost a fortune. However, with a gym installed in your brand new basement, you can get fit from the comfort of your own home.
A step beyond the standard lounge, a home cinema allows you to watch films as they were made to be seen. With a widescreen TV, a decent sound system and some comfy seating, you can bring the cinema experience to you and transform your basement into the ultimate living room. With a home cinema, cosy nights in will never have seemed so appealing and, if you’re a film fanatic, you can host epic movie nights that offer a true cinematic experience.
If you’re a budding artist with a lack of storage space, it’s likely you’ll have lots of supplies strewn around your household. Not only will this make your home feel cluttered and messy, but an artist also needs space to get creative. A basement turned art studio could be the perfect solution to keeping your creativity confined to one room, allowing the rest of your household to function as normal.
