It is more common these days for Indian homes to have basements. Nowadays, basements are more than just a place to park the car or put away unused items, they are planned as an area where the members of the family unwind and entertain friends. A basement can be converted to playroom, game room, media room, home bar, storage space or family room -
or all of the above. Adding extra space also ups the overall resale value;it will appeal to more buyers and lead to a higher market price in a competitive market.
What room should I turn my basement or cellar into?
Every family is different needs, interests and hobbies, so start by understanding how you spend you time and then build ideas around it. If you host parties very often a home bar or wine cellar would be a good investment. If you're looking for a kid-friendly hangout, use a massive family and media room combo basement design. You can also give the man in your family the ultimate escape with a game room and home gym. Ultimately your basement design will depend on your need, space and budget.
