If you have an unfinished basement in your Cleveland, Ohio home, it can be hard to picture yourself ever using the area. However, leaving a basement unfinished and unused is a tragic waste of space! At LPB Construction, Inc. we love to help homeowners utilize every square inch of their homes, which is why basement finishing is one of our favorite projects. Today, we’re discussing three ways you could be using your basement if it was finished.

3 Ways to Use Your Finished Basement

1. Additional Bedrooms

In today’s market, you can’t go wrong with adding a bedroom or two. Not only will it make more space for your expanding family, but it will also be very attractive to potential buyers, should you decide to list in your home in the future. Even if you currently have all the bedrooms your family needs, you could use it for other purposes such as a guest room, an office, or a workout space. Having a few additional bedrooms in a finished basement really makes the whole space more versatile and usable.

2. Playroom

If you have young kids, you know there is no limit to their ability to spread their toys far and wide across your house. Even if you have designated places to put them away, the toys are still somehow always visible when you don’t want them to be. Creating a playroom in your finished basement will give your kids a place for all their toys, where they can play without disrupting the rest of the household. We can even help you design custom storage options and closet space to help you keep it all organized.

3. Media Room

Finally, if your kids are past the playroom stage, give them a cool place to hang out instead. They’ll be able to have all their friends over for the Super Bowl or movie nights, and you’ll know they are safe and sound. Our expert team can help you find the perfect setup with a large-screen projection TV, surround sound, and comfortable seating that your whole family will enjoy. We can even include a kitchenette area for snacks and drinks!
