There are a number of people who live in a home that they feel simply is not big enough. That is why they will try to find a new home that is going to offer them the space that they need in order to fit their big family comfortably. One thing that is always great to have attached to the home is a basement.
You will be lucky if you are able to find one of these that has been finished and fully carpeted. In most cases this is not going to happen so you need to make sure that you will be able to handle the cost of trying to remodel and finish the basement on your own. However, in order for you to be able to do that it helps to know what you will be turning it into.
If you really are in need of space than why not turn it into a spare bedroom? All you have to do is make sure to add in the proper insulation, carpeting, lighting, and an air conditioning unit. You might even be able to add in a wall and put in a closet or even a bathroom for anyone to be able to use.
What better way to save money and stay healthy than to use this room as your personal home gym. For this you are going to want to put down very thin carpet or hard tiles that will not get ruined by the heavy equipment that you will be storing inside of it. Make sure that you have room enough for your stereo system and mirrors on the walls. Nothing will make you want to work out more than your own reflection.
One of the best ideas to use for this room is to use the home theater basement design. If you are like me than you love to watch movies. All you need to do is get some comfortable couches, build a mini bar in the back, and mount your large screen television. You could even be creative and install a projector and hook your stereo system and DVD player to it.
