5 More Ideas for Your Finished Basement!

Finished basement

Finishing the basement is a home renovation topping many homeowners’ to-do list for 2019. It increases your living space and can boost the value of your home, so a finished basement is definitely a must have. Fortunately, we have a selection of detached homes at Valleylands in Brampton with finished basements, so you can skip the reno and just personalize it the way you want!

Last year, we shared a few ideas on how you could transform your finished basement, and now we’re sharing five more!

The woman cave/lady lounge

Man caves are overdone. It’s time to embrace the lady lounge (some call it a ‘she shed’). That said, who’s to say that the women in the family don’t also enjoy sports and big screen TVs? So what we mean when we say make it a woman cave is that the mother/wife (or sister) should have control of the space!

Organized storage

Marie Kondo’s new Netflix series, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, is all the rage at the moment. She specializes in organizing your possessions and teaching you how to appreciate your home. Proper storage is key to her tidying philosophy. One tip she has is to use clear containers so that you don’t have to open things up to know the contents. If you have a lot of stuff and can’t seem to part with it, your finished basement can be the perfect storage facility.

Craft room

Crafting is a fun activity, whether you’re doing it on your own or with your kids. But it’s also a mess and sometimes requires a lot of materials and tools. Having a designated space would make crafting easy and convenient. All you need is storage for your crafting materials, a surface, seating, and proper lighting. Make sure this space is bright and colourful to spur creativity.

Music room

If you’re a family of musicians, having a dedicated space for music makes a lot sense. Instruments take up a lot of space, and if your daughter is practicing drums in her room, the sound will travel much more than if she were playing in the basement. There are even foam tiles you can buy to make a room extra soundproof.

Bar lounge

The kitchen has become the primary gathering spot in a home, especially when entertaining. If you prefer to use your kitchen primarily for meal prep, then you can transform your basement into a stunning lounge space with a bar, comfy seating, and a kitchenette.
