Your basement is not just the place to do laundry or random storage to put old boxes and junk. You can really transform it, making your basement another part of your home. If you get really creative, you can turn it into your special room to get away from it all. Why not redecorate your basement to banish those holiday season blues? Here are few ideas to really bring out the best in your basement…
Create a Home Cinema
It’s great if you have the room and money to really go for it, creating that true cinematic experience with a wide screen and popcorn machine but if you are on a budget, a nice HDTV with great speakers is always a great alternative. You can add great posters and scrolls (that you can often pick up free at your local cinema) to really add to the atmosphere bringing character to the room. Watch your favourite films and save money by bringing the cinema to you!
Is it football, rugby, or cricket season? Why not decorate it with some sports memorabilia and even have sports mugs and coasters for your favourite teams! Even a his and hers type of vibe with jerseys is great fun. Enjoy the range of finger food (a guilty but necessary pleasure) as the big game plays on the screen. You can always order on pay per view for multiple games if you don’t feel you will be getting your money’s worth.
Build Your Own Home Bar
This is a great treat for anyone partial to a fancy tibble! You can build a bar complete with state-of-the-art fridge to keep your favourite spirits chilled to perfection, ready for your next gathering. Imagine, the ideal place to store your favourite dessert wines in a cool dry environment letting them age. in terms of decorating, your basement is the ideal place to release your inner child!
Go wild creating the perfect bar! You can always find great jazz lamps at www.lampcommerce.com to give your bar a certain aura and having a home for your wide range of mixers and glasses just makes common sense! Ladies will love having a girl’s night in while sipping a light moscato and you can have fantastic themed parties all on a reasonable budget. Even holiday lights with holiday cocktails shows attention to theme. Just make sure your friends know when to leave…
Have Fun with a Family Game Zone
Of course, technology takes over our lives, but wouldn’t a electric game room be a great way to relieve stress? Put in a pool table, an arcade, a pinball machine, ping pong, or card game table. It’s always nice to get away from it all for a bit in a relaxing yet exhilarating setting. Don’t just have this area for your kids, but cater for the adults too! After all, you’re allowed to have fun! You don’t always have to go out and spend money somewhere. Bring the party to you in a safe and relaxed atmosphere.
Your basement is a sanctuary; cherish it. Don’t just have it as your laundry room or that place to store your odds and ends. Take pride in creating your own fun centre within your home.
