Game rooms are great for families. It offers a welcoming place to escape while still being in your own home. Depending on the age of the children, a game room may serve different purposes. Younger children may need more open space where they can lay out their toys and play on the floor. Families with older children may want to fill the space with a pool table, air hockey, or foosball. Remodeling a basement into a game room creates the perfect opportunity for family bonding and a great place for anyone to hang out.
If members of your family are heavily involved in arts and crafts, creating a craft room may be just what you need to unleash that creative spirit. If your focus is textiles and sewing, you may want to add shelving to hold excess fabric and a large table for measuring purposes. Your remodeled basement could also serve as an art studio for members of your family who love to paint.
