Transform Your Basement into a Classy Lounge
For many families a basement is a bunch of underutilized space that could be something really cool, but instead is doing something like holding your old boxes and photographs. Renovating your basement is the best way to make use of the space as long as it’s relatively dry, tall and comfortable to be in. With some hard work and professional guidance that drab space can be transformed into a classy lounge for friends, family, guests and anyone else to relax in.
Plan out Your Space
The most difficult part of creating an exciting new space is planning the project out from beginning to end. It’s not simple to lay out a basement to make it into a luxurious or relaxing lounge space, but it’s important to take your time and do the project right. Talk with expert designers, work with contractors, look through design magazines and decide on all the elements that you want to incorporate into your new lounge. By pulling everything together carefully you can draw up a design plan that will get you exactly the lounge that you’re looking for, and then you can move on to hiring professionals to build it all for you, but don’t rush the process. Take your time and do it right.
Finish the Basement
If you haven’t done so already, spend the money to get professionals into your basement to finish it off. This means adding in reliable flooring that’s moisture resistant, comfortable and stylish. Go with a flooring solution that creates a welcoming environment while also fitting the theme of your space. Add in insulation and wall material as well as a ceiling to your space to give it a modern finished feel and look, and to block out any of plumbing, heat ducts and other unfinished sections of your basement.
Add in Modern Lighting
Light can help make a space feel more open, comfortable and welcoming, but only when you add in the right type. Consider adding some recessed lighting, pendant lights or another hanging light to your space, but rely on some daylight toned LED bulbs in the lights to help breathe life into that underground space. You can transform your basement into a brilliant and comfortable space just by adding in some quality lighting.
Add Décor and Furniture
After giving your basement that finished look, and brightening it up with top grade lighting, it’s time to move on to adding in the finishing touches and including furniture that’s going to pull the entire space together nicely. Add in tables, bars, couches, chairs and throw rugs to infuse the space with your style while making it comfortable to relax in. This is the part of the project where you need to get creative, but if you aren’t sure how to finish off your new basement lounge talk with designer professionals about how to bring the whole space together in the end.
It takes time to transform an unfinished, basement space into a relaxing lounge that you’re excited to bring guests to, but it’s a worthwhile project that you can enjoy for years after. Take the time to create the perfect space for you and your guests, and enjoy relaxing in it the rest of the time that you have your home. The best part is that a basement renovation project can even increase the value of your home in the end.
