5 Ideas For Using Your Basement Space

Many people with basements are sitting on a goldmine, only they don't know it. They have all that extra space, but instead of using it as living space, they just use it as a catchall for miscellaneous junk that won't be missed if their wet basement ends up ruining it. A basement only used for storage is expensive square footage!

Thankfully, waterproofing your basement is a viable option and will return your basement back into usable living space again. Once you have a professional contractor, like Sohan and Sons, remove your moisture problems and prevent a wet basement in the future, you can begin using the space. Here are five ideas for that newfound extra square footage.

Set Up A Home Gym

Skip the expensive monthly gym membership fees and build your own home gym instead. You're more likely to exercise each day, too, when you have the convenience of a home gym rather than having to leave the house.

Build A Man Cave

Who doesn't want their own dedicated sports space to escape to? Display your old high school trophies and sports memorabilia, set up a pool table, poker table, and video games, hang a mammoth big screen television, and invite your buddies over to watch the big game. You can also set up a bar and barstools to give the space a tavern feel.

Create A Home Theater

Nothing is better than turning the lights down, sinking back into a cozy recliner, and watching the latest blockbuster hit on a projection screen TV. Invest in a surround sound speaker system, grab a bucket of popcorn and a box of chocolate covered raisins, and you'll never guess you're sitting in your very o9wn basement.

Make A Craft Room

Whether you're into woodworking, textile arts, painting, jewelry making, or some other arts and crafts hobby, it takes up a lot of space. Between the materials, equipment, and tools, trying to do crafts without a designate space for it can be difficult. It usually results in spilling over to the rest of the house, creating a mess. With a dedicated space in your basement, you will be able to create without worry.

Earn Extra Money

When you have the contractor over to quote the basement waterproofing, ask them about the possibility of converting the area into an apartment. This option can provide you additional extra monthly income to help pay the mortgage or other bills.
