For many families, the basement is a large, open space that is often neglected as a living space in their home. Since the living room and kitchen often steal the spotlight for entertaining guests, the basement may be forgotten as yet another space with huge potential for entertaining and enjoyment throughout the year. With a brand new home by Viking Custom Homes, there are so many ways to enjoy your basement as an essential room in your new house. Consider these ways to make the most of your beautiful new basement this winter.
Create a Cozy Den
Turn your new finished basement into a cozy den by adding a couch, armchairs, and plenty of comfortable blankets and pillows. With a finished space of drywall, carpet, and lighting, the simple addition of furniture will instantly transform the room into a casual and cozy living space. If you are looking for even more warmth and comfort in your space, consider additional installations such as a fireplace for you and your family to enjoy during the chilly upcoming winter months.
Create a Fun Entertainment Center
If your family loves to entertain guests throughout the year, why not turn your basement into a fun and exciting entertainment center for everyone to enjoy? Bring the television downstairs and incorporate fun and creative shelving ideas to store DVDs, game consoles, and board games that will keep your guests entertained for hours. For even more convenience as you entertain, consider adding a kitchenette to your basement entertainment space so that you and your guests can enjoy drinks and snacks throughout the evening.
Create a Guest Living Space
For older kids or guests who plan to stay in your home for an extended period of time, your basement can easily be transformed into a separate living space. Particularly if you already have a bathroom included downstairs, consider sectioning off a portion of your finished basement space as a bedroom. This additional living space will not only comfortably accommodate guests with plenty of privacy, but it will also boost the value of your home if you plan to sell in the future.
