As the temperatures rise you may want to get out of the sun and enjoy a cool place in your home for summer fun activities. The lower levels in your home can be 15* degrees cooler, making the basement the perfect place to spend a hot summer afternoon. If your basement is unfinished or just needs updating, here are some fun ideas to improve your living space.
Create a giant play area!
Use the area under the stairs to create a playhouse for smaller children. You can also use that space for shelves to store games and toys. Create a colorful area with a fresh coat of paint and a throw rug. Let your children’s imagination run wild on those days it’s too hot to play outside.

Relax in a library
If you want to relax and enjoy a good book, you can create a perfect library with built in book cases. You can host a small gathering with a small kitchen eating area as well.

A perfect game room
If you have teenagers, a game room with a built in entertainment system will keep them busy during the day. Your home will be the teen gathering spot and neighborhood fun place.

Needing a She Cave?
If you need some mom time, you can create a perfect crafting area in the unused basement space.

Or a Man Cave?

There can even be enough space to create a special man cave for the dad too.
