Basements

Expand your home's square footage by using the basement for more than just storage. With simple updates, you can create a usable space that works hard and looks great, too. Use our basement decorating ideas to create a living room, bedroom, or media room for your lower level. Whether your space is a full, half, walkout, or cellar basement, you can transform the area with help from our decorating ideas, remodeling tips, how-to projects, storage solutions, and inspirational photos. We have a something for everyone: full-scale remodels to quick and easy updates that can be completed in a weekend or less. Our featured basement makeovers will inspire you to tackle your own area, and the before and after photos will make you look twice -- those really are the same basement spaces! When deciding what to do with your basement, think about how you want the space to function. Use our planning calculators for estimates on flooring and paint, and take our fun quizzes to determine your style personality, floor material preference, or even the colors that suit you best.
