Rethinking Your Basement
If you haven’t considered your basement as a candidate for a bedroom transformation, it’s time to rethink its potential. Although basements can seem dark unfinished, you’d be surprised at how far we can take a basement remodeling transformation.
Check out these great basement bedroom ideas:
1. Embrace the Warmth of Wood
When it comes to a basement bedroom transformation, rule #1 is to make sure it’s well-insulated. A poorly insulated basement bedroom can be uncomfortable during the cold winter months. But a warm, cozy basement can be a place of comfort and respite. In addition to quality insulation, adding plenty of warm, insulating wood paneling can add an extra layer of comfort.
2. Make it Personal
The beauty of a basement bedroom is that you get the opportunity to make it completely unique to its planned occupant. A basement bedroom is a perfect way to give teen or tween family members their privacy while at the same time letting them design the personalized space that expresses their one-of-a-kind personality.
3. Use Layered Lighting
Good lighting is crucial to a well-executed basement remodeling project. Because basements often have minimal windows, it’s important to plan lighting carefully. A combination of pendant lighting, sconces, and overhead lighting can layer nicely to give the greatest impact, creating a bright space that you’ll hardly believe was once a basement.
