lower-level remodel

Nothing seems quite as promising as the untapped potential of an unfinished space. However, these same exciting rooms can prove daunting when it comes time to determine just what direction you want to go. Consider one of these project options when it comes time to transform your lower level from a dark and dreary space into a room that your family will love to use for years to come!

• Home Theater: Avoid long lines and exorbitant ticket prices by bringing your theater viewing experience into your home. Common elements of a home theater remodel include insulating interior walls to help contain sound, installing wall sconce lighting and other dimming light options, sloping the floors to aid screen viewing, installing theater seating, and of course, creating a focal point for your screen.

• Bar: Are you still looking for that bar where everybody knows your name? Why not build your own? A lower level bar can serve as the perfect gathering place for family and friends. A true wet bar, complete with a sink and plumbing system, will afford the most entertainment options. In addition to the bar itself, great bar projects should also include conversational seating and entertainment in the form of a billiards table, juke box, or television focal point!

• Game Room: Whether you have a board-game loving family or a poker-playing group of friends, a game room is a space that can be enjoyed by all. Create a place with comfortable seating and plenty of floor space for lounging video game players. Make room for a pool table, billiards board or other large components for more traditional gamers. Functional and durable flooring will withstand whatever play time has to offer. By also creating a flexible room that can be easily rearranged to meet different needs, gamers of all types can enjoy the space day after day and through game after game!

• Wine Cellar: Convert your lower level space into a wine cellar to keep your favorite beverage within arm’s reach! Create a climate controlled environment by installing a cooling and insulation system to ensure your wine is well maintained and stored. Construct a storage and organization system to physically hold your wine. Finish the space off with an intimate tasting area for you to enjoy the fruits of your labor!
