The basement is the perfect place to cool down on a hot summer day. Because of its location, it often stays a consistent, moderate temperature throughout the day, which makes it the perfect room in the house in the summer. Transform your basement into a summer oasis with these cool basement ideas!
Enjoy a space that converts from day to night. A basement bar is ideal for sipping a cool drink, entertaining friends and family, or simply unwinding after a long day. Features include a tv, pool table or dart board, bar stools, comfortable seating, and a hard surface such as a counter or coffee table to place a drink or snack. If the basement is on the ground level, the walls can be opened to feature a glass siding door that opens to a pool or yard.
A games room offers a place for kids and adults to keep busy during long, summer days. Surround sound, sound proofing, game consoles, a tv or projector, and a ping pong or foosball table are great additions to consider. The best part about a games room is the design options are endless! Choose a fun theme to help create a summer escape.
Nothing is a better investment than a home movie theatre. As a versatile space, it can also transform into an extra living room. Like a games room, you will want to invest in quality speakers, soundproofing, and a tv or projector. Some other options include a mini fridge for drinks, a popcorn machine, movie theatre seats, a dimmer switch, and recessed floor lights.
A music room is great for keeping teenagers occupied in the summertime. All you need is some instruments, a microphone, an amplifier, track lights, sound proofing, and a fun wall mural and rug to complete the space.
If you are more of a bookworm who enjoys summer reading, try a basement library. Floor-to-ceiling shelves with a rolling ladder, lamps and side tables, a decorative rug, and a comfortable seat are the perfect finishes to get lost in a good book all summer long.
