02 May 5 Ways to Make Your Basement the Ultimate Hangout
“Let’s go hang out in the basement!” Admit it. You instantly pictured a dark and dingy partially finished basement with zero natural light, furnished with worn out couches that should have been tossed years ago. When proper lighting and building materials are chosen by the experts at Michael & Associates, your basement can easily be converted to usable square footage that you will actually want to hang out in.
Check out this gorgeous kitchen build-out to get your wheels turning on all the possibilities your basement could be…
You would never know this warm and inviting kitchen was in the basement. Michael & Associates can turn your basement into a destination spot for entertaining your family and house guests. An open space plan with an eat-in kitchen is one of the many potential options for your basement space. If you are an enthusiastic entertainer, a bar area and walk-in wine cellar can also be incorporated to create the ultimate adult hangout space. Installing plenty of comfortable seating options, and a big screen television will make your party a hit! The adults can socialize while younger children can play within eyesight.
Look at this awesome home theater installation with stadium seating… Picture you and your closest friends with your feet up, munching on your favorite snacks, enjoying a movie marathon, binging on Netflix, or watching the big game. Sounds nice right? As a bonus, there won’t be any children repeatedly kicking the back of your seat like they would be at your local movie theater (unless they are yours that it is).
If a home theater doesn’t seem like the right fit for you, consider using your basement as a fun family gaming space complete with a ping-pong table, pool table, or shuffleboard. Teenagers will love having a private place to hang out with their friends while still under your supervision. Call it a win-win!
Work Out Room + Spa
For those of you who want a place to work out without having to go to the gym, a private exercise studio might be exactly what you need. The convenience of having your own personal gym at your fingertips will likely encourage you to work up a good sweat more often. Once you are done getting your heartrate up, a spa-like bathroom can be used as a relaxing retreat to cool down after a long workout.
A basement walkout is a creative option to bring the outdoors in. Extend your outdoor living space and let in natural light by creating a walk out to your patio or terrace. A set of French doors leading out to your pool or backyard will help parents keep an eye on little ones while enjoying the scenery.
The options for your “bonus” basement space are really limitless! Whether you are an entertainer, gamer, or health enthusiast, you can pick and choose the elements you would like to incorporate to create a basement space that you and your family will enjoy. Consult with Michael & Associates to turn your basement into the ultimate hangout retreat!
