When you start remodeling your basement, you have a world of possibilities ahead of you. This is an area of your home with endless potential, and there are so many interesting, exciting, and useful things that you can do with the space! Whether you’re setting up a simple family room area or doing something as ambitious as putting in a full gym or home theater, at Eagle Construction, we want to help you achieve the basement of your dreams. If you’re struggling for ideas that might fit well into your home and lifestyle, here are a few things to consider!
Turning your basement into a livable space with a bathroom, bedroom, living room and potentially even a small kitchenette is an option that has many, many possible uses depending on your life and what you expect the future to bring your way. We see this kind of addition put into basements for aging parents who are moving into a house, adult children who are moving back home, people who frequently have overnight guests, those who plan on renting out an apartment within their house, and more. You can essentially have a home within your home that allows both you and the person staying there to have their own private space!
Bar and Entertaining Area
If you love throwing parties, hosting family, and just generally having a good time with people you love, fitting out your basement as an entertaining space might be a great choice for you. A built-in bar area in your basement is something that puts a gleam in the eye of many an amateur mixologist, and you can practice serving up your favorite cocktails to people you love all day with an addition like this. A finished basement with plenty of room, some comfortable seating, a bar, and a big TV will help you to host everything from the holidays to the Super Bowl.
TV lovers and movie buffs alike will love being able to get that movie theater experience without having to actually go to the movies. A huge projector screen, some plush seats, and a killer sound system will go a long way towards turning your basement into an immersive theater experience, but you can go the extra mile with Eagle’s help. We’ll help ensure you get great sound quality with well-placed insulation, and we’ve even built out special concession areas in home theaters before. Anything is possible!
Extra Kitchen Space
Every accomplished home cook knows that no matter how big your kitchen is, it’s really never enough space. From crammed cabinets to crowded counters, you could always use just a little extra room or an additional appliance to help you get a jaw-dropping meal on the table for your loved ones to enjoy. A kitchen space in a finished basement can be an incredibly useful addition for these homeowners, giving them the extra flexibility they need for holiday dinners and ambitious recipes.
For self-taught sommeliers and connoisseurs of all things alcohol, a built-in wine cellar in your basement can be a fabulous way to store and display your collection. Basements are a great place for an addition like this, because they tend to stay at a more optimal and consistent temperature than the rest of the house, and you can install special temperature controls as well. You’ll find with this in your basement, there will be no better way to impress your guests than to lead them down the stairs to select a bottle!
These are just a few of the fantastic additions that you can have in your finished basement when you work with Eagle Construction. If you have an exciting idea of your own, or you’d like to get started discussing your upcoming project, make sure to contact us today!
