Basketball in the Basement: The Best Ways to Watch March Madness

March can only mean one thing for college basketball fans — March Madness. It’s also the perfect time of year to watch those games from a beautifully finished basement.

A Basement Man Cave Worth Watching the Big Games In

A basement is a blank canvas and can be turned used for a variety of different purposes — an extra kitchen, bar, living space, game room, man cave, or sports shrine you name it. One of the most popular ideas is a basement man cave as an added living/dining space for hosting watch parties for games. These spaces often incorporate a bar, kitchen or added living area for easy entertaining.

Building the Ideal Man Cave for the College Basketball Playoffs

Basement man caves usually have a few features common among them, the first being an area dedicated to watching the game. This can take shape in a number of different ways – a bar with a mounted TV, a large TV or projector and living room entertaining space, or both! When creating your basement man cave, you can decide to keep it simple or go extravagant and one of the factors in that decision will certainly be the budget. Having a clear budget can help you decide where you can tone it down and where you can bring it up a notch. Will this be a smaller space for you to enjoy alone time or will this be a larger space to host the March Madness man cave party of your dreams? Working with our contractors and designers can help you decide what your man cave “must-haves” are, and what you are willing to compromise on to fit your specific budget.
