Basement Family Room Ideas & Designs

According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary, “Family Room” is defined as “a large room designed as a recreation center and informal gathering place for members of a family.” Wiki goes on to say “The family room is designed to be a place where family and guests gather for group recreation like talking, reading, watching TV, and other family activities.” This means that the basement, if properly finished with waterproof materials, is a logical location for casual recreation for a large group of people, whether they’re related or not.

Basements often cover the footprint of the home, potentially offering a larger space for group recreation beyond the immediate family. Don’t let basement stereotypes keep you from seeing the possibilities! When done properly, expanding your living space below grade will add value to your home, and give you a little more elbow room for family fun.

A Second Chance: From Raw Basement to Family Room

Valuable Real Estate

Photo by Erik Rank

In the quest for extra square footage, a dry, unfinished basement is a holy grail. For the cost of some finish work and mechanicals upgrades, you can get a whole new room, sometimes two or three.

For years kitchen designer Karen Berkemeyer used her below-grade space as a laundry room. But the desire for what her home lacked—an informal space for family lounging and TV viewing—caused her to take a second look. “We never had one space where we could all gather and watch a movie,” says Berkemeyer. So the basement was transformed into just that, and during the process upgrades were made to the laundry room and storage closet, and a full bath was added, allowing the space to double as a guest suite.

4. Themed Game Room

One of the reasons why we highly recommend you use an entire room as a gaming center is the design freedom you get. Since it is your personal space, you can pretty much design it in any way you want. If you want to really personalize the space and create the best gaming atmosphere, choose the right theme.

Most gamers use their favorite games to theme their video game rooms. You can go vintage and create a Super Mario themed room with elements from the first Mario games released in the 1980s. If you are crazy about racing games, deck out your game room in all the racing posters and paraphernalia you can get your hands on. Same goes if you love swords, fighter jets games and sports games.

Some go beyond gaming to theme their rooms after their favorite movies. So if

Trend #3. Enclosed Theater Rooms vs. Open TV Spaces

Top Trends in Basement Design - Sebring Services

When it comes to designing a basement media room, homeowners have two options; an enclosed theater room or an open TV space. A theater room is generally for the real enthusiast.  They want all the adornments that would enhance the experience: enclosed walls, plush reclining seats, a projection screen, surround sound, LED floor lighting and maybe even a popcorn machine.  An open TV space is more casual and much more cost effective to set up. It actually feels more like a living room because it resembles a typical living room with media equipment added.

The traditional theater room has been the dream for most homeowners. But considering the cost and stress of setting one up and the increasing appeal of open concept design, 2019 will see more homeowners opting for open TV spaces.

They could even be integrated

5 Ways to Create a Basement Family Room That You Will Want To Use

Hi Friends! Welcome back to Postbox Designs. I’m Kristin, mama to three, wife, and Doodle owner. If we haven’t met before, I ditched my full time job as an interior designer about three years ago when the work-life-balance got out of wack. With three kids it was tough to balance everyone’s schedules. Then I realized so many people were just like me: multi-tasking rockstar women who were just trying to fit in their To Do lists everyday. And while so many women wanted a beautiful home…who has the time to do the buy-and-return cycle? Or it was so overwhelming, they left that dreaded task to another day…then three years went by and they still have an unfinished room. So I started working exclusively via Online Interior Design.

Finding the perfect family home with a blank slate basement, ready to be decorated

When we first toured our house, it was completely empty. It has a huge basement and we knew from the moment we saw it that it would be our family room. We also knew that we wanted to make it a beautiful space where our kids could play and we could relax — all with budget in mind, of course.
