Finished BasementWhen you decide to finish your basement, you are making an investment in your home. That additional square footage will be extremely valuable to you in terms of day-to-day functioning as well as if you ever decide to sell it. But just how will you use that extra space? Allow our team at Gemini Wallcovering & Renovations Inc. to give you a few basement finishing ideas.

1. Media Room

Do you love spending time with family or friends watching a movie, the big game, or perhaps playing video games? If entertainment is a big part of your life, consider turning your basement into a media room. You can have a large, built-in entertainment center with space for your TV, speakers, video game system, DVDs, and more. Add some adjustable lighting, surround sound, and some comfy couches, and you will create a space where you will want to relax for years to come.

2. Play Room

If you have kids, you know the value of having all their toys, coloring books, crayons, and general chaos all in one place. They can have a space to play without toys spreading throughout the house, and you won’t feel like you have to keep it constantly picked up since you can close the basement door and just forget about it when company comes over. Eventually, you could convert it to a media room or even another bedroom. But for now, a play space may just keep you sane.

3. Master Bedroom

Is your existing master bedroom a bit underwhelming? Consider turning your entire basement into a deluxe master suite. You can have plenty of space for all your furniture, walk-in closets, and a beautiful spa bathroom. You’ll love coming downstairs at the end of a long day to relax in your master suite.
