Private office

Convert either a section or your entire basement into a private office and create a dedicated space to focus on your work without any distractions.

Entertainment hub

Turn your unused basement into a hangout spot. Install a small kitchenette and bar area to entertain guests, and keep the style cosy and warm to create a welcoming vibe. You might also want to put in a big couch and a sound system to keep the sports shows out of the living room!

Fitness centre

Wouldn’t it be nice if your gym was just 10 steps away? Well, you can make this happen by renovating your basement. Install mats, a few mirrors, some weights and a treadmill or bike to make your very own home fitness centre.

Relaxation zone

Use your basement as an extension of your living room and make it into a relaxing and serene space. Decorate with beach-style colours inspired by the sea, sand and sky to create a basement getaway.

Extra bedroom

Give your guests a place to find comfort and refuge and turn your basement into an extra bedroom. Add a cosy en-suite and install built-in cabinets and wardrobes so you can get a spare bedroom and extra storage out of your space.

Kid-friendly space

Design a kid-friendly area with fun decor and a place to store their toys. If your children love drawing, consider transforming one of your basement walls into a chalkboard so they can get creative all day long.
