Are you looking for ways to reimagine your basement?

The easiest way to add livable space to your home is to finish your basement. If you’re looking for ideas on how to finish out that basement to make it work for your family, schedule a complimentary design consultation. Whether your lower level is full, garden level, or a walk-out, the Interior Designers at Striking Remodels can help you maximize that open space.

Recreation Room

A family recreation room is a popular choice for homeowners looking to add living space. Home theaters are well suited to full and garden-level basements that are already a bit darker than upstairs spaces. If your basement is a walk-out, an enclosed space with theatre seating makes a wonderful movie room.

Game rooms are also a popular choice, with space for a pool table, ping pong, darts, gaming tables, or gaming computers. Often, the rec room is accompanied by a kitchenette, dry or wet bar, and bar or table seating. The perfect space for entertaining guests, hosting the big game, or summer entertaining, particularly if you have a walk-out basement with an outdoor living space.

Home Office

If adding a home office is what you have in mind, a lower-level office adds the ideal mix of quiet and privacy. For some, a home office means a place to work quietly on the phone and computer. For others, a home office is a hair salon, massage parlor, dog grooming station, or personal training space. If you need bookshelves and a fireplace, or sinks and swivel chairs, you can customize your space to fit exactly what you’re looking for.

Hobby Room

Maybe you’re looking for a place to create a gift-wrapping and crafts station. Maybe it’s a sewing room you’re dreaming about, with a place to lay out patterns and cut material. If your dream includes a quilting machine, why not dedicate the space you need for the larger hobby equipment?

Additional Bedrooms

A finished lower level is a great place to add rooms for visiting guests and older children. By creating a bedroom getaway in your basement, you’ll have a space that feels like a retreat right in your home. Some homeowners are looking for single beds while others want camp-inspired bunk beds for visiting grandchildren.

Home Gym

Personal fitness is top of mind for many Colorado homeowners. Whether staying in shape for the ski slope or rehabilitating an injury, a home gym might be just what you are looking for. We’ll help you design a space to fit all your home gym equipment.

Wine Room

More homeowners are adding wine cellars to their home remodeling projects. If you have a collection of wine, the bottles will sit around for a while and need the right climate and temperature to age properly. Like collecting sports memorabilia, vintage wines appreciate over time. You’ll want to allow for constant temperatures, proper humidity levels, and protection from UV rays. In addition to the wine storage, a nice tasting area is the perfect way to enhance your space.
