Bewitching Basements

There’s nothing scarier than an unfinished basement, which is why we’re handing out design tricks that can take this subterranean space from creep to chic! From cold concrete floors to barren light bulbs, unfinished basements can cause quite the fright. And unless you’re planning on hosting a haunted house this year, it might be time to dress it up a bit. You’d be surprised—it only takes a few style maneuvers to completely remove your basement’s fear factor.

Brush Up the Bare Bones

The most bone-chilling part about an unfinished basement? Those cold concrete floors. To make quick work of warming them up, work with vinyl! Waterproof, mold-resistant and cold-resistant, vinyl is ideal for every type of basement. Strictly storage? Absolutely. Craft space? You bet. At-home gym? No problem. With countless colors, durable textures, and an easy installation process, vinyl is the perfect way to warm up your basement.

Pro-Tip: If your floors are covered, but your walls and ceiling are still exposed, break open a can of paint! Painting exposed pipes and other unsightly elements is the quickest way to mask a basement’s worst features. And if they can’t be saved by a coat of paint, hang floor-to ceiling curtains for a stylish faux wallpaper.

Host Spooky Screenings

To bring your basement back from the dead, treat it like a living room! Trick it out with comfortable carpeting, couches, and an entertainment center to create the ultimate underground “it” spot. Before you know it, your basement will be the designated hangout for those scary Halloween movie marathons. As long as the movies are doing the scaring, and not your basement, your work is done.

Pro-Tip: Never hunt for the remote again with dedicated basement cabinets! Fit yours with a remote holder and enough space for your favorite movie-theater treats for the perfect finishing touch.

Raise the Bar

There’s no need to fear your basement when it’s fitted with a custom wet bar! Sneak downstairs to your own private speakeasy, or invite your friends for the happiest of hours. With a built-in sink and storage for all your glassware, your post-party clean-ups just went from frightful to fast. Shake up bone-dry martinis, mix up your own mystery cocktail, and never worry about making a mess again. Just don’t forget to add an under-counter cooler to keep your favorite booze cold.

Lighten Up

Nothing raises the hairs on the back of your neck like walking down the stairs of a dimly-lit basement. Whether yours is a workroom, playroom or plain ol’ storage space, proper lighting will take any basement from haunted to homey with the flip of a switch. Recessed fixtures are perfect for those low-ceiling, low-light basements. They’re seamless, stylish, and leave more room overhead.
Choosing the type of light is important too—for a cozier vibe, lean towards softer whites. They fall in the yellow range, creating a warm and welcoming feeling.

Pro-Tip: Energy costs scarier than your basement? Change all your light bulbs to LEDs! LEDs consume up to 90% less power than incandescent bulbs, making your monthly electrical bill freakishly low.
