Gym or Workout Room: This is ideal for those who would like a dedicated room for exercise equipment without losing the space in their home. It is amazing to know that when you want to work out you don't have to get in the car or leave the comforts of your own home. A place to exercise in your home will pay for itself in more ways than just the value of your home; it will pay in added years to your life. For the health-conscious, this just might be the greatest of the basement remodeling ideas.
Often basements are left partially finished. This means you have open ceilings that show the studs, wires, and the under side of the floor boards above you. The quick solution for this is a suspended basement ceiling. These are easy to install and once installed your basement takes on a more homey feeling right away. You have easy access to any wiring and/or pipes that other ceiling options would have covered up but you don't have to look at them every day.
Firstly, they may make any room seem a little bit smaller, but this ultimately creates an illusion of a more intimate space. This can be especially good if your house happens to have a very high ceiling. It would lend a bit of comfort instead of that intimidating feel you get from seeing too much space in a room. Bedrooms and studies can also benefit from some ceiling color because it gives the room a cozy feel to it.
Another doozey on the list of basement ceiling ideas is to install mirrors on the ceiling, which can do wonders for a low, small space, lending itself to the illusion of a much bigger room. This can also intensify your lighting, giving it an ambient quality where it might otherwise have brought about stark shadows. Indirect lighting directed at the walls can reflect light onto the ceiling, making it appear higher in the process..
Another basement ceiling option is to install ceiling mirrors. Installing mirrors on the ceiling enhances the lighting that you have in your basement. You can use mirrored tiles in an ingenious way for your basement to appear larger than its actual size. This is an effective optical illusion for smaller basements. Make sure that your ceiling is not so low to avoid accidentally smashing up the mirrors.
Office or Study Area: Turning your basement into a home office is a great way to provide a quiet, tucked away workspace in your home. A basement turned home office provides a perfect "work away from work" space when you need to be at home or just need a change of scenery.
