You love your home and it’s everything that you and your family could ever have wanted, and everyone has their own personal space. But, you need something more. You need a space in your home that’s just for you. Someplace where you and your buddies can get together for a weekend, and just enjoy a fun and rowdy weekend of food, drinks and most important of all lot’s sporting events! You need your own Media Room, so it’s time for that long overdue basement renovation.
One of the first things that you have to understand with any basement renovation or other home improvement project is that it is an investment in your home. Over time, it is going to add value to your home, so you have to make certain that it is done properly in order to protect your investment. So, you will want to plan out your basement renovation by speaking with a licensed contractor, maybe actually seeking out a contractor that specializes in this sort of renovation.
Okay, so you have an idea in your mind about the design of your media room, so now it’s time to take a few things into account with its actual construction. The amount of time it will take to complete this basement renovation depends on if the basement is finished or unfinished. If it is a finished basement, then the cost to renovate will be less costly because there will not be the need to do costly framing work. If on the other hand you are dealing with a basement that is unfinished, then the cost of this renovation will be more expensive and maybe effect the time line that you have decide upon to have the job completed.
After the basic framing for the renovation has been completed, this is the where you have to decide on the specific details for your media room. Make watching sports with your friends like going to a movie theatre with a media room that has a huge movie style viewing screen, add a popcorn and concession area for that true movie theatre experience, add some theatre seating if you like, or make it a bit more casual with some comfortable lounging furniture, and don’t forget to add surround sound stereo for that true movie theatre experience.
Some other things that will enhance your media room is the proper lighting for the room, painting the walls in soft, warm colors will create a certain mood to the room that may be more family friendly. Another option can be choosing a wood panel for the walls to add that man cave feel to the room.
When this basement renovation is completed, your media room should be that one area in your home where you just love to enjoy spending a lot of time in. It can also be a functional family living space that everyone can enjoy, and of course it’s going to add value to your home.
