Most basements are left as dark and dank parts of homes that normally end up as either storage areas or just forgotten empty spaces. That is a lot of floorspace and it can be put to good use with a little imagination. Think of a games room in the basement, with just a few tweaks and without spending too much money, you can transform your empty basement into a cave of fun. Here are a few tips that can help you do just that, by way of an introduction to the process if you’re contemplating such a transformation.
- Avoid clutter: Don’t overcrowd your basement with too many table games. Almost every table based game requires at least three to five feet of space around it to work best.
- Furniture: Have a few permanent seating spots like a sofa and a pile of stack on chairs and stools in a corner so that you can accommodate a good number of people.
- Media: A flat screen television, surround sound, gaming consoles and sound muffling are great value additions.
Remember that all of the above don’t necessarily have to be brand new or expensive, it is more about the fun with friends and family than about the flash. Also, you can eventually upgrade your games room over time.
