If your basement is dark and dingy, used for storage of things since forgotten, don’t despair, you can transform it into a functional basement design your whole family will love. Any basement can be magically transformed from depressing into family-friendly havens, inviting guest suites, inspiring workspaces, home theaters, a playroom for the kids, a games room, a laundry room, fantasy man caves, etc., it’s up to you to decide the best way to make it useful. Basements can actually be quite cozy. Some of them had lots of square footage and the advantage of natural light to work with, while others were no more than damp holes in the ground underneath the house. It’s all about the layout and the furniture. Include warm and comfortable textures and avoid dark colors unless you are trying to add drama to the space, or it is the media room.
