7 Basement Remodels You Wish You Had

Basement design and remodeling is not what it once was. In the old days, storage and extra bedrooms were the prime reasons to remodel or finish a basement. Now, homeowners expect to host Super Bowl parties or graduations in their renovated basement. We want entertainment. We want large TVs and home theaters. We want a bar. We want a second kitchen. We want to create a home within the home. Before you start your basement remodel, we wanted to invigorate your creative senses by sharing seven basement remodels you wish you had.

Home theaters are gaining popularity every day. In fact, many homeowners consider it a must-have for their ultimate man or woman cave. All home theaters need the large recliners, recessed or sconce lighting and of course, a large TV or projection screen. Sadly, the homeowners in the first basement remodel above did not go all out with their TV, but we do love the drink holders on each recliner. Our second home theater would be perfect for Super Bowl Sunday.
