UK Capital Investments Group : Top 6 Ideas For Your Basement Space


Are you planning on turning your empty basement space into a room that is much more useful for you and the entire family? If you have plans on doing so, then continue to read on to learn about the top 6 ideas that you could use for your empty basement space. You have to remember that there is no right or wrong way to set up your space, but you really need to focus and pull through with what you really want your basement to turn out after all the renovations.

#1 Family Media Room

Some owners have turned their basement into family media rooms because it is one of the best ways to spend some quality family time. You could put in a large comfy coach with some bean bags, a screen projector or big screen TV, refrigerator and other furniture to make it comfortable for your family and even friends. Here are a few tips to think about if you opt to a family media room:

- Insulate the walls of the room and not just the exterior walls so that sound can be dampened

- Do not put the screens near a window to avoid problems

- Consider creating a platform for seating to increase the visibility just like how it is in a movie theater (this may be a bit pricey so make sure to think about your budget)

- Consult a home theater expert so that you could find out about the proper placements of your sound and audio equipment

#2 Personal Gym

If you hate driving all the way to the gym, then why not turn your basement into your own personal gym? In doing so, make sure to have the proper calculations of measurements in terms of the equipment that you plan to put in so that it actually fits the room. Create a list of all the gym equipment that you want to include in the space so that you can figure out if they can come down the stairs.

#3 Work Offices

If you need more space for your work desk, paper work, computers, laptops, printers, fax machines and other office appliances, then turning your basement into a work office is a great idea. Make sure to plan out where everything will go so that you can utilize space. Maximize your lighting and keep the "office" ambiance through your interior design.

#4 Guest Bedrooms

If you feel that you are in need of an extra bedroom for your guests to sleep in when they plan to stay the night, then this is another great idea to consider. All you basically have to do is to make sure that the room has all the necessities that they need. That means you should have a comfortable bed with linens and enough pillows, a closet, a half bathroom or whole bathroom (which ever you can afford to build in), a TV and a ceiling fan or heater if necessary. It is a very wise idea to have your basement waterproofed to avoid future water damages which could cause you to spend more money.

#5 Bars

If you like throwing parties for your friends then you might consider turning your basement into a bar. It is pretty much installing a new kitchen without the appliances so the expenses will vary. You have to think about if you want a full bar or not because if you do not want a full bar you could purchase a horizontal bank of cabinets that you could use as your bar's main table. Be creative and fun with its interior design so that the room gives off positive energy. Make sure to price all your options carefully.

#6 Storage Room

If you need more storage space for appliances, furniture and other personal items around the house then the next best thing to do is to turn your basement into a storage space. All you have to do is purchase storage boxes or shelves so that you can put everything away neatly and orderly.
