Your basement. Have you decided how you’re going to utilize that space? Whether it’s unfinished or in need of some remodeling, there are endless possibilities on what you can do with that space. Whether it is the home to most of your utilities such as the water heater, water softener, or electrical panel, Smithwell can help you design your basement into a great space. From a playroom for the kids or a home bar with wine cellar, our skills in designing and building you the perfect room will help you bring the whole area to life. Here are a few ways you can liven up your basement.
- Personal Gym: If your basement has a higher ceiling, putting in a personal gym can be a great way to utilize space. Sometimes dealing with going to the gym can be a pain. Because of the distance, it’s very easy to come up with excuses for not going. Plus side of having a home gym is the 24-hour accessibility, with no membership fees. You can also space your workouts out if you need to.
- Home Office: Remotely working from home is an employment trend on the rise. It’s important to keep your work life and home life separate, which is why we suggest remodeling your basement, or part of your basement to be a home office. This will help you to organize better, and have a space of your own during the week.
- Theatre Room: Who doesn’t love the idea of having a theatre right downstairs? A screen can be permanently attached to the wall or it could be rolled up out of the way when not in use. Do you want to double this space as just an entertaining room? Depending on how big the house is a kitchenette could be installed for popcorn, a place to keep drinks and other various snacks so no one misses the show.
- Wine Cellar or Home Bar: This is a room for people who enjoy collecting various wines either from around the area or around the world. If you don’t necessarily want a basement full of wine bottles, the room could be a small bar area where you can keep your various wines, whiskeys, gins, beers, and much more. It could be a place for entertainment or just where you keep any alcohol.
