When it comes to basements there is not much in terms of the finishes and layouts that separate one basement development to the next. However adding unique areas to your basement that entail some framing and finishing tweaks, is definitely something to consider before starting. It can be as simple as framing in for a bedroom that when finished, can easily be converted into a playroom, a gym or games room. All you need to do is incorporate 2 sliding doors that lock together for this room as opposed to a typical bedroom door opening. In addition, a wetbar area and designated theatre room or open concept living space, will certainly maximize the functionality of this new area of your home while adjusting to your changing needs in years to come.
