Ideas for Basements
If you’re like most homeowners in MN, you probably have a whole bunch of unused space beneath your main floor that’s going essentially unused – the basement. While it can be nice to have some unfinished storage capacity, there’s often a better way to use what’s likely a massive amount of potential living space.
Basements can be difficult to design, which is why we spend so much time with folks talking about basement remodeling ideas.
Remember, when you’re planning a basement remodel, you’ll work to balance the budget, your space, and all the spectacular ideas and dreams that you discover.
Basement Finishing Idea #1- a Basement Bar
In many ways, a bar is the perfect addition to a basement renovation or remodeling project.
- Extra Storage
- A Beverage Center
- Water for Drinks
- Extra Seating
- Ultimate Movie Snacks
- Sinks & Dishwashers
- Fridge for Fresh & Healthy Snacks
- Cold Soda or Beer
A basement bar can bring some of the magical aspects of a dining room & kitchen, down to where you retreat and relax. Installing a basement wet bar isn’t exclusively beneficial for those that enjoy adult beverages.
A basement bar makes a great place for wine coolers, a refrigerator for soda or sparkling water, beverages, and is the perfect solution to keep fresh snacks like fruit, veggies or cold cuts.
You’ll have to decide between a wet bar and a dry bar. What’s the difference between a wet bar and dry bar? The dry bar will not have running water while the wet bar will have additional plumbing to bring water.
