Revamp your basement and give your kids a place to release all of their energy this summer. Reliable Home Improvement can help you plan your basement remodeling project from start to finish, and personalize your space so that it’s perfect for you and your family’s needs. For your basement playroom, we’ll help you choose stylish pieces that give your children a safe and entertaining place to play while still maintaining a modern and clean style.
Read these 3 steps, and you’ll be on your way to turning your basement into a playroom. Your kids will love it, and you’ll love that they have a safe place to have fun with their friends.
Maximize your space
Your basement will likely be a playroom for your kids as well as a space for the adults to relax and entertain guests. Due to the nature of the space, you’ll want to make sure that kid-friendly areas and adult areas are separated when laying out the design. Aim for verticle storage to maximize space and consider fixtures that will give the illusion of a higher ceiling. These will give the impression of a larger room if you’re struggling for space. For larger spaces, blocking off “adult space” and “kid space” will maximize the usability of your basement.
Keep it easy to clean
Choose flooring and wall treatments that are easy to clean–this is going to make your life a lot easier in the long run. Laminate or wood floors are easy to maintain as well as carpet squares that can be removed/replaced. If you decide to add a bathroom or kitchen to your basement living space, Reliable Home Improvement has a large selection of tile, modern plumbing fixtures and back splashes for you to choose from.
Add fun accents
There are a number of things you can do in your basement to make it family-friendly. Consider a chalkboard wall, vibrant colors and an area for kids to showcase their creativity. Before you begin working with Reliable Home Improvement, work with us to decide the layout of your space to ensure that the adult section of the basement is easily accessible to the media center while still being close to the kids play space (you’ll want to keep an eye on your kids while they play). Our team of experts can work with you to decide the best layout for your basement.
