Ideas to help you plan your dream basement

There are so many design options to consider when remodeling your Michigan basement. Finished Basements Plus wants to make it easy for you. We have listed a few popular basement remodeling options that you might want to consider.


Basement with a Home Theatre

Home Theater/Media Room

If you're a movie buff, isn't it time you had a screening room where your family and friends can relax and enjoy the best that Hollywood has to offer?

Built-in cabinetry on either side of a big flat-screen TV will enable you to hide wiring and store DVDs. Put ceiling and wall sconce lights on separate switches so you can turn the brighter ceiling lights off during the movie. Don't forget to make room for reclining lounge chairs with small side tables for popcorn and beverages.

Basement Bar

The basement is a perfect location for a "man cave" or basement bar where you and your buds can unwind, watch the game and debate about who was the greatest of all time.

Splurge on a neon sign to set the mood, and consider adding a basement bathroom to eliminate trips upstairs. Last but not least: a compact refrigerator and a small bar.


installing a basement fitness center in South Lyon

Home Gym

Your basement's concrete slab floor makes a great base for even the most hardcore weight-training and fitness equipment.

With a small flat-screen TV and DVD player, you can get entertained while you train. Add a basement bathroom or even a small sauna to create your own health spa.


basement game room

Game Room/Lounge

Whether you want a space for your teenagers to hang out with friends or a grown-up hangout spot, a basement game room or lounge is the perfect area for comfy couches, a pool table, card table, foosball, and much more. Your basement can even be transformed into the ultimate music room or recording studio.

Home Office

You'll be surprised at how productive you can be in a basement office, away from upstairs distractions.

Avoid eye strain by combining glare-free overhead lighting with good task lighting. ThermalDry® floor tiles provide an easy-to-clean floor surface that office chairs love to roll on.

Guest Room / In-Law Apartment

If you need another bedroom, don't spend big bucks on an addition. Instead, take advantage of the space you've already paid for.

Chances are you'll need at least one larger basement window to meet building code requirements for safe egress. For that purpose, we offer energy-efficient windows. Also, consider adding a basement bathroom or even a small kitchen.

Children's Playroom

If you're struggling to find space for the kids to play without destroying the upstairs, a basement play area might be just what you need to give the rest of your house a rest.

Our strong, impact-resistant wall panels will take all the abuse kids can dish out. ProComfort Carpeting is the ideal way to create a comfortable floor that resists stains, moisture damage and mold.
