Top Basement Remodeling Trends of 2017
There are so many things you could be doing with the extra space in your basement. At times it can even be overwhelming contemplating what to do with the room, but before considering whether you want to do your basement remodel yourself or if you should consider hiring a general contractor, you really should have a vision of what your basement will look like at the end. To help you envision your dream basement, here are a few of top remodeling trends for 2017.
It is very common for people to turn their basement into another entertainment space. Consider going with a more classic look for the bar by opting for a marble countertop and stylistic bar stools, or you could go with a sportier vibe and hang up your favorite sports memorabilia around a rustic wood finish. Either way, you’ll have extra room to entertain your guests in style.
Whether you have lots of guests from overseas or the in-laws who like to visit often, a basement suite can be a good option for your remodel. Having the extra bedroom and bathroom can make things a lot easier for you and your houseguests. It gives both of you extra privacy and will most likely increase the value of your home in the long run. If you choose this option, make sure to choose relaxing paint colors and soft flooring to give the space a cozier feeling. And if your basement doesn’t have too many windows, you’ll want to make sure you get bright lights and lamps to illuminate the area.
Basement Home Theater
Considering the fact that most basements don’t have a lot of natural light, this space is an ideal place for a home theater. This is one of the most popular basement remodeling trends this year. If you want to install a home theater, make sure you plan for a surround sound system to enhance the entire experience. Projector screens are becoming more affordable, too, and are a good choice for this type of project.
