You have probably been spending a lot of time outside with family and friends this summer, which is wonderful. But how are you going to continue your entertaining duties when you can no longer keep everyone outside? Fall is almost upon us and that means cooler and colder temperatures up here in the Northeast and several other areas of the country.
We have one answer for you…
Turn your basement into an inviting entertainment area, so that your parties do not need to go on hiatus until spring. A finished basement is an excellent way to keep the fun going all year.
Here are 4 things that we recommend when creating an inviting entertainment area in your basement:
Make it warm and cozy
Turning a basement into a warm and cozy space is much easier than it seems. All that you need to do is add a neutral or warm color to the walls, put down carpet or possibly a heated floor, and add comfortable furniture to complete the look. An inviting fireplace is also something that many people consider adding, because who doesn’t love sitting in front of a warm fire?
Keep it versatile
Not every get together is going to be for a large crowd of people, so we recommend making your new entertainment area quite versatile. You will want to choose furniture that can be easily moved to create one large open seating area or several smaller intimate spaces. Ottomans and trunks can even be utilized for both storage and additional seating.
Add a bar
A bar is a great addition to any entertainment space because it gives you a place to set all the food and drinks. To make entertaining easier, we recommend placing a refrigerator, cabinets, and even a dishwasher in this space. That way, you are not running up and down the stairs to retrieve items or take the dirty dishes up.
Add a television and surround sound
Not every party calls for a television or music, but when they do, you will want to be prepared. A large screen television is perfect for those playoff games, and while the surround sound will help everyone hear the game, it can also be used to play some background music before the game begins.
