What to Do With Your Unfinished Basement

Posted on: 2018-03-06


Many homes – especially new builds – come with an unfinished basement. While this may seem overwhelming to some, an unfinished basement gives you the control to turn the space into whatever suits your life best! If you’re wondering what to do with your unfinished basement, read on as Parabola Developments outlines a few ideas and inspirations.

Build Out a Cozy Guest Space

Give your guests the luxury of having their own space when they visit. Building out a spare bedroom and bathroom will not only keep your guests comfortable, it also keeps them out of your space – minimizing the amount of disruption to your regular routine. Often, your unfinished basement will already have the plumbing set up for a bathroom, so you’ll only have to install fixtures. Take your space utilization to the next level by designing a guest room that doubles as an office, or meditation space.

Create an Entertainment Area

Looking for more entertainment space? Consider creating another living area downstairs! Whether you’re just looking for a place to watch TV, or for a room to hold your monthly poker tournament, your unfinished basement has a ton of potential. Popular basement additions among homeowners include a bar, tiered seating and built-in surround sound systems.

Transform It Into a Personal Gym

You’ll never have an excuse to not work out again if your gym is downstairs. You can easily create an amazing workout area with minimal costs. Hang some mirrors on the walls, place your equipment and don’t forget a mat area. Hint: use interlocking foam floor tiles to create a soft space for core workouts, stretching and cooldowns.

Use It as a Playroom

What’s that sound? It’s the sound of silence because your kids are busy playing downstairs! Your basement offers plenty of space for your kiddos to run around, and is a great way to keep toys stored away and out of sight!
