Basement Design Ideas

Many houses sit on top of unfinished basements that are dingy, damp, and generally not a place you’d like to spend much time. Your basement doesn’t have to be a dungeon, though. In fact, there’s a huge variety of awesome design ideas you can use to enhance the space. Add this versatility to the fact that the basement is usually the largest room in a home, and you’ve got nearly infinite possibilities: a playroom for the kids, an entertainment space for adults, or additional rooms for guests. Our team can make almost any design idea come to life!

Our talent and versatility stems from the fact that we’ve been in business since 1992. That’s over 25 years of bringing basement design concepts from the drawing board to construction-ready blueprints and diagrams.

Basement Design

Basements are a forgotten part of many houses. They sit below the rest of the house, dark and unfinished, and become a place to store things we don’t use very often. Just like the stuff stored inside of them, basements are out of sight and out of mind.

It doesn’t have to be this way! In fact, your basement is one of the largest – if not the largest – room in your entire house. Leaving it unfinished is a huge waste of space and opportunities. That’s where we come in! Our design experts at Basement Design Studio can completely transform the room into a usable space for entertainment, relaxation, and more.

With a little TLC and re-design, your basement can be just as comfortable as any other room in your house. You can also do almost anything you want with it. Some people choose to turn the basement into extra bedrooms and bathrooms for guests or older kids who need more space to themselves. Other families like the idea of having additional living space like a personal gym or game room. What you do with the space is absolutely up to you, and we’ll tailor our design to meet your goals and expectations.

Redesigning a basement is so much more than a fresh coat of paint and some new furniture. While little touches like that can make the room feel a bit more homey, a basement design completely transforms the entire room. We’ll determine the placement of walls, lighting, bathrooms, and other architectural features.

Oftentimes, the layout of a basement creates challenges during the redesign process. That’s where we come in! We put our 25+ years of experience to work when we redesign your basement. Our cutting-edge 3D software allows us to accurately visualize our designs and share them with you before a single nail is hammered down. This can save you a lot of money once construction begins!

Before we get started on your basement design, we ask that you send over blueprints and measurements of the basement. Using this information to tailor our design ensures that our plan is a perfect fit for your room. Instead of using a “cookie cutter” approach like low-rate basement design companies, our design is perfectly customized for the size of your space. We also account for key architectural features like electrical wiring, plumbing, ceiling height, windows, and support beams.

Good planning pays off and will cut down on the project timeline and the price of the project. By having a flawless basement design plan on day one, you’ll be prepared for the entire project to come off without a hitch.
