5 Fun & Functional Basement Decorating Ideas

A finished basement in your home is a major bonus when it comes to space. So what do you do with all that extra square footage? We’ve put together a list of five basement decorating ideas that will help you make the best use of your basement space.


  1. Home Theater – This one’s for all you film buffs out there. If you love watching movies with your friends and family, why not bring that experience to your home! With a sectional sofa, a big screen TV, and some microwave popcorn, you’ll have everything you need for a basement home theater!loft bedroom set
  2. Guest Room – Instead of bumping one of your kids to the couch when grandma comes to visit or fighting with an uncomfortable air mattress, turn your basement into a guest room. With a comfortable bed, a few accent pieces, and the right lighting, your guests will feel right at home.desk_with_storage
  3. Home Office – Whether you work from home full time or part time, having a dedicated space to work from is vital to productivity. If you have limited space upstairs, consider a small office in the basement. A practical desk with storage for papers and files will have you feeling organized and efficient.
