When you first purchased your home one of the main reasons that you probably made the purchase is because there was so much potential for designing your own space when it came time to finish your basement. Now that you are getting close to making the decision about what to do with that personal space you have so many ideas.
So what are some of the best alternatives to turn your basement in to a place that fits your needs?

Does your significant other hog the TV watch Calgary Flames or Calgary Stampeders games? Does your spouse take over the family room while the Oscars are on? Instead of fighting about what you’re going to watch how about creating a man cave?

It can also be decorated with memorabilia or whatever your significant other would like for his man cave.
