Every family is different, so when looking for basement ideas make sure you pinpoint how you spend your time and then cater to those hobbies and interests. If you host parties often or are beer and wine aficionados, turning your basement into a home bar or wine cellar would be a good investment. If you’re looking for a kid-friendly hangout, become the neighborhood hot spot with a massive family and media room combo. Give the guy in your family the ultimate escape with a man cave, game room and home gym, or be practical above all else by adding extra bedrooms and another bathroom.

To comfortably fit a double bed, you’ll need a room with a minimum of 125 square feet. If twin beds will serve your needs better, plan on at least 150 square feet. The closet backed on the kitchen, and was placed behind the room door because the stairs from the backdoor going up to the kitchen and down to the basement ran behind that wall.
A more common way of pricing internal grilles is by the unit. Typically, the up charge is $10 to $25.00 per window for a standard aluminum or vinyl internal grille set. Today, there are so many design shows on television it is hard to keep up with them. Kitchen Crashers, Bath Crashers, I Hate My Bathroom and many others show us, the homeowners, just what can be done with a decent budget, know-how and a little ingenuity. We put hooks on the back of the door to hold towels or robes. We also put a hook beside the shower to hold a towel. We also put hooks inside the closet doors.
