I am so tired of looking at my unfinished basement. I pretty much can’t stand going downstairs – except of course to do the laundry or to store extra supplies. So … I’ve resolved to start refinishing the basement some time in the new year – probably in the spring.
I don’t really want a fancy finished basement, just something practical. You know – since the basement is small half the area would be for the furnace and laundry and perhaps some extra storage and the other half could be finished like a den or rec room with cozy couches, a reclining chair and one or two modern coffee tables.
If we’re really smart about it, the couch will be a pull out so we’ll have some extra sleeping space for guests. We do have two spare bedrooms upstairs but sometimes we have several guests stay over and having an spare bed in the basement wouldn’t be a bad idea. Not at all!
Do you still have an unfinished basement or did you bite the bullet and finish your basement?
