When was the last time you peeked into your basement? What do you use it for? Is it a mainly unused junk or storage room? Sadly, most basements don’t see their full potential. After all, it’s an entire space that can be transformed into many things and could even wind up being the most loved room in your house.

At Centennial Construction & Remodeling Services, Inc., we offer basement finishing services, so we see homeowners utilizing these spaces often, and how much happiness it can bring to a family. Here are a few types of rooms into which people typically turn their basements.

Art Studio & Gallery

This one is for the artists. A basement can be the perfect room to transition into a nice quiet studio—whether it’s for painting, photography, or any other type of art. Heaven!

Guest Room
With a little insulation to eliminate cold weather and noise, as well as some attention to details, your basement can make a fantastic guest room where your visitors will be very comfortable.

A basement office is a particularly good idea if you take clients or meetings at home. It will create a professional environment that separates your home from your work. A library/study is also smart if you value your quiet time to read.

Bar/Wine Cellar
If you’re a beer or wine connoisseur, your dream basement may mean turning it into a wine cellar or bar area. With wine cellars, you may want to consider a wine-room-specific HVAC system to keep a consistent and proper balance between temperature and humidity. For both a wine cellar and a bar, you’ll also need to ensure that your basement has adequate waterproofing to prevent any dampness or leaks.

Kids love having space to release their (seemingly endless) energy. Too often, this energy can take its toll on your main living area. Because of this, a basement playroom might be ideal for your family. They will love this space of their own—a fun area that will help their imaginations grow!
