Basement conversion ideas
Converting your basement to a habitable space is now a very viable and cost effective solution, can add value to your home and provide a whole new living experience for you and your family. Basement or basement areas can be transformed into stunning, welcoming rooms ready to be used as:
Creating an extra bedroom in your property can increase the value dramatically whilst also giving you what could be much needed bedroom for a growing family. Alternatively, having a guestroom which is separate to the rest of the house can be beneficial for friends and relatives who might want some peace and quiet.
As a basement conversion is often going to be a quieter and more secluded area than the rest of the property it could be perfect for a study. Older children who are working towards exams would have a ‘quiet area’ in which they are free from distraction to work or adults who are looking to get some extra work done without the distraction of children and a blaring television.
Converting a basement into a home office could be the perfect scenario for your growing business. Although still part of the property being able to go the office will mean that your family and children know that you are at work and shouldn’t be disturbed (apart from for cups of tea, of course) unless absolutely necessary. A basement conversion could also have an external entrance meaning that you can have business meetings without having to go through a potentially messy and unprofessional looking home.
If you have enough space in your basement conversion then a fantastic use of the space is for a gym. Installing gym equipment will save you on an expensive gym membership.
Turning a basement conversion into an extra bathroom is perfect for a family with children who are beginning to grow up and perhaps spend a little more time than strictly necessary admiring their hair before school in the morning.
A wet room

A home cinema
Many people would see this as the ultimate basement conversion idea. Installing a home cinema in your basement would allow you to install a sound system which wouldn’t be too noisy for the neighbours and other parts of your house.
