Many homeowners find themselves wishing for more space. At Tom’s Best Quality Remodeling, your wish is our command. When you enlist our basement finishing and remodeling services, we can create a beautiful, functional space that the whole family will enjoy. Check out these 5 popular uses for finished basements.

Uses for Finished Basements

1. Media Rooms

Movie buffs will rejoice at the sight of your home’s personal theater! The best part is that you don’t need a lot of bells and whistles to make a quality media room. With some comfortable seating and the right technology, you can turn your simple basement into a gathering place everyone will enjoy.

2. Personal Gyms

Are you tired of tripping over your treadmill and barbells? Using your basement as a personal gym is a great choice to declutter your main living space and invest in your health. One of the primary considerations before making the conversion is ceiling height. Make sure you have the proper ceiling clearance to comfortably use your equipment.

3. Home Offices

Working from home is great if you have the right space to work from. At Tom’s Best, we can take your dark, dusty basement and turn it into a quiet, comfortable office space. Quality lighting is important for home offices, so we recommend the use of recessed LED lights and French doors to maximize natural light.

4. Guest Suites

For those who prioritize hospitality, a guest suite is a great addition. We can transform your open basement into a useful guest suite complete with a private bathroom, closet, and kitchenette. Guest suites can also provide an extra source of income if you are willing to rent the space. Building code standards require an egress window for all bedrooms, so keep that in mind when planning this space.

5. Bars and Wine Cellars

Clients who value entertainment should also consider creating a bar or wine cellar in their basement. We can install a full bar, or a simple bank of cabinets with a refrigerator. As experienced kitchen remodelers, we can help you strike the perfect balance between style and functionality while staying within your budget.
