Take that dark and dreary basement and make it the center piece of your entertaining. Dreamscape Homes and remodeling can do just that. Here are some basement trends that are hot this year according to Allenkeith.com:
- Gain More Livable Space With a Finished Basement
When a family is bursting at the seams of their home, the answer to expansion could be at their feet. A home’s basement is often a cluttered storage area and laundry room. However, it is a much-needed gold mine of square footage. Often basements are open, with a potential of large family game rooms, theatre rooms, and entertainment areas. Today’s families are changing it by finishing their basements with walls, ceilings, and flooring. This large room is a great place to serve the extended family holiday dinners or a place to send the kids to play.
- Add a new ceiling with Recessed Lighting
Basements have several negatives, such as lack of light and exposed ductwork. Take those negatives and turn them into positive basement features by remodeling. By enclosing ductwork with a variety of ceiling tiles or drywall, this creates opportunities for recessed lighting that is updated and often not available on the main floor of an older home.
- Meet Your Family’s Needs with Multi-Functional Rooms
Basement remodeling trends feature multi-functional rooms with built in bookshelves, entertainment centers, and conversation groupings. This can provide space for a TV room, family room, or a great space for entertaining.
- Add Living Space with Bedrooms and an In-Law Suite
Today’s families utilize basements to create expanded bedroom space for teens or playrooms for children. A full service bathroom is essential with this option. If the basement can be made into a walkout, another popular use of a basement is creating an in-law suite for children returning from college or for parents who may be moving in for their golden years.
- Increase Your Storage with Cabinets
Basement remodeling trends almost always include some sort of cabinetry, such as shelving for books, storage for children’s toys, cupboards for off-season storage and cabinets for wine glasses and table service for entertaining.
- Create a Trendy Entertainment Area
Converted into spectacular entertainment areas, remodeled basements can be designed to feature bars, pool tables and ping pong tables, as well as kitchens and food service areas. Trends include themes, such as sports bars, or 1950s diners.
- Tailor a Room to Your Tastes
Basement remodeling trends often reflect the tastes and needs of the homeowner.
- If the need is more office workspace, a basement can be refitted with desks, shelves, and credenzas.
- If the need is more family game area, the basement can be designed as a game room.
- A hobby room can house a model airplane collect, provide an indoor tool room, sewing room, or scrapbooking space.
- Movie buffs enjoy the home movie theater. The beauty of basement remodeling is the freedom to install wiring for surround sound and hanging wall-mounted flat screen televisions – something that is difficult in the finished rooms of a home.
Basement remodeling is all about creating personal space to meet the homeowner’s needs either by creating an entertainment area, a work area, or a play area.
Remember the Laundry
While utilizing space, consider updating and finishing a laundry room with:
- Much needed storage space
- A jetted tub for delicates
- Counter space for folding clothes
- Rods for hanging clothes
- A laundry chute from the second floor

Home Remodeling and Improvements
Home remodeling is thriving. Maybe it’s because old houses are starting to need the tender love and care that owners have been conveniently harboring for other matters, maybe it’s because the baby boomers are finally starting to settle down and make comfortable and livable niches for themselves, maybe it’s because peer pressure and shiny ads have finally gotten to everyone, all at once. No one is sure – all we know is that home remodeling is hot.
