Splurge on a wine cellar: Are you a wine enthusiast, or simply want space to store your collection of vintages? A glass wine cellar can be a uniquely sophisticated and useful addition to your basement, and you don’t need to allocate much space to make it possible. In the size of a small bathroom, you can construct a sleek, sophisticated room that will showcase and protect your collection of reds and whites.wine cellar basement in Oakville

Use the full potential of built-in furniture: Smaller basement spaces might require some careful planning and consideration. To maximize space and attain a smooth, classic look, consider purchasing built-in furniture such as television cabinets and closets to add in storage, maximize décor and showcase your stylistic flair.

Mix high and low fashion: An excellent trend in design today is mixing elements of unfinished with finished to create a uniquely blended and original interior. Leave an exposed brick wall or ceiling, or cover an unfinished floor with a placement carpet to create an inexpensive yet bold design statement.

Carpet or carpet tiles are in again: When you think of carpets in the basement you think of your grandparent’s home, but that’s no longer the case. Carpet or carpet tile is an inexpensive yet highly versatile flooring option for basements, which can create additional warmth and better help insulate your renovated area. Opt for soft shades and pair them with bold furniture to fully maximize your inexpensive and creative flooring.finished basement+carpet

Engage in creative storage options: Use the area under the stairs, in nooks and crannies, and maximize the storage space in creative ways. When creating extra storage, remember to allocate enough room for whatever interior you want to create.

Build your kids a playroom: Whether they’re tots or teens, your kids will benefit from having their own spot in the house, and so will you. Use the area under the stairs as a playhouse for your toddlers, or use that extra bedroom space as your older kid’s personal clubhouse.

Custom furniture can be the easiest way to plan smart: While custom furniture is expensive, with smaller spaces it can help maximize how much you can fit into an area. For example, a custom-made table will fit easily into a small nook where a store-bought one will look strange, and awkward.

Now is the time for Home-Theatre: As less and less people find the time to watch television or movies as a family, a home-theatre upgrade is an excellent way to breathe life into the way your family spends time together. Use a segment of flat wall as space for a projector, or install a large wide screen television and comfortable seating.
