The basement is becoming one of the top three most-remodeled areas of the home. Homeowners across the United States are quickly realizing that their basement can become whatever they want. Many include space for the entire family for the renovation, but we wanted to talk about adult themed basement ideas today.

  1. Cigar Room – Comfortable chairs, lavish furnishings, and ample ventilation are absolute necessities for the perfect cigar room. The decoration options are entirely up to you; whether you decide to go with the traditional look or a more modern look, you’re going to love your new personalized space. Build or purchase a high quality humidor for storage to keep your cigars fresh and handy.
  2. Wine Tasting – A wine tasting room, or a nice area to sample your favorite adult beverage, is a wonderful addition to your home if you enjoy relaxing with the occasional drink. The basement is perfect for this because it’s a quiet space away from distractions and noise. Install a nice cellar, refrigerator, or other appropriate storage. Decorate with comfortable furniture and lavish decor to complete the atmosphere.
  3. Lounge with Bar – Lounge, by definition, means to sit comfortably and do nothing. Comfortable seating is only one part of creating an amazing lounge with bar area. The bar itself has to be well-stocked, nicely decorated, and have ample seating for yourself and friends.
  4. Electronics Free Area – Today’s advances in electronics technology make us very reliant on our electronic devices. Sometimes it’s nice to just step back and take a break from our phones, tablets, and all other electronic devices. Create an electronics-free zone so you can relax and enjoy the quiet.
  5. Total Relaxation Area – A sauna, hot tub, steam room, or other relaxation space is an amazing way to unwind at the end of the day. Consider a massage table and meditation space where you can be completely alone or meditate with friends. Create your own personal spa in the privacy of your basement and decorate it the way you want.

There’s no reason the adults in the household shouldn’t have their own space. A lot of homeowners turn the basement into a fun area for the kids to help keep the upstairs areas clean and clutter-free. This is entirely up to you, of course, but you need your space as well.
