Photos and ideas for real-life basement remodeling solutions.
Create a smooth look out of multiple components with a customized media storage system. With cords and cases hidden, black boxes minimized, and room for display, this wall becomes a stylish focal point in a finished basement.
Maximize basement storage by utilizing a sliver of space by the stairs. This wall of open shelves offers just enough depth to store books and small mementos.
Privacy curtains on a ceiling-mounted track can give a single room dual function. This curtain separates office space from TV viewing.
Sconces and recessed lighting boost the brightness of this active basement, which benefits from high ceilings and a pair of daylight windows.
No room to work out? No sweat! Curtain off a laundry zone along one wall, then make way for the treadmill, weights, and other equipment. A ceiling fan and TV make it feel like a posh home gym.
Banish a creepy basement laundry room with a suspended ceiling and bright lighting—from the window and overhead fixtures. Ample cabinets, a double sink, and built-in shelves sized to hold laundry baskets make wash day a dream.
Why haul dishes and snacks up and down the stairs? Instead, create a mini kitchen in your basement. This one aligns a microwave, sink, and dishwasher on one wall, making entertaining a breeze.
A workbench with wall-mounted storage, a comfy foot pad, and a sawdust removal system makes a corner workshop a reality.
Separate a homework zone from the play zone with a dividing wall that holds the TV. Chalkboard-paint walls keep the creativity high; ample lighting keeps the basement space bright.
