Get project ideas and renovation inspiration for the bonus rooms in your home. Whether you want to put in a guest bedroom or simply create a one-stop storage area, updating a basement can be a perfect place to start. We've gathered expert tips to know before you begin a basement remodel so that you're prepared for almost anything. Check out our basement conversions and before-and-after spaces to determine how you want your room to function and look. And, if you are a do-it-yourself kind of person, we have DIY projects with step-by-step instructions to guide you along the way. Mudrooms, another often-overlooked space, can be maximized with our helpful tips and organization strategies. Shelves, bins, cubbies, hooks, and baskets work hard and look good, exuding style while keeping entryway clutter in check. Outdoor rooms also extend living space -- patios, decks, porches, courtyards, and sunrooms increase livable square footage and let you enjoy the beauty of the outdoors. Learn how to build a fire pit, lay a paver patio, and plan your outside living room. Gather inspiration for outdoor pergolas, gazebos, garden sheds, and other structures that add beauty and functionally to the space.
