I was watching one of those home shows on TV over the weekend, one of those ones where they totally renovate or redecorate one or two rooms of a house … Well, on the show I watched the renovated the living room so that it would be a home theater with theater seating, big screen TV, surround sound system and special lighting so that when you’re watching a film or something on the big screen the lighting is really low.
I’ve mentioned before that we hope to redo our basement. Well, no redo it, but finish the basement since it’s currently a raw unfinished space. We hope to make part of our basement a home theater room. Of course the rest of the plans include a really nice bathroom, perhaps hiding the laundry area and maybe a small spare bedroom.
I wonder if we can make a spare bedroom without closing off the space with walls? Perhaps just a half wall separating the bedroom area from the home theater room? Our basement is fairly small so I think the more open we keep the space the larger it will look. Yeah, I know, we can’t make it look bigger than it is, but if we start putting walls up all over the place it will look really small.
Any ideas for a basement renovation?
