Do you love having friends and family members over, but space seems to get tight quickly? Consider how finishing your basement can not only increase your space, but also enhance your hangout time. Imagine having a large room dedicated to gathering together. As you consider basement finishing, you can create the perfect entertaining space if you follow these tips from our team at Hearn Construction, Inc.

1. Determine a focal point.

Focus your basement’s design on the activities you love most. How do you and your guests spend your time? Do you play games around a table, enjoying snacks and lively conversation? Make your finished basement all about a game table and wet bar. Do you tend to cram together on the couch to watch the latest blockbuster? Turn your basement into a media room, with plenty of comfortable seating for everyone, a built-in entertainment center, and custom theater lighting.

2. Don’t forget storage.

Whether you want a workout room or a home theater, don’t skimp on the storage. Consider how closets, cabinetry, or built-in shelving might enhance the space.

3. Choose durable flooring.

Most finished basements see a lot of use. Whether your kids are playing down there or your friends get a little crazy on poker night, you want flooring that can withstand the fun.

4. Choose inviting color schemes and décor.

When you begin basement finishing, you may not have color schemes or wall art in mind. However, when you get around to these home improvement details, we recommend that you choose features that are welcoming and in line with the focus of your room.
