Like every year, between January and March it’s a great time to “hibernate”! So I’m thinking cocooning down south in the basement, haha!!! Let’s enhance and organize a space so we are able to enjoy every inch that we have. I’ve prepared some ideas and visuals and hope these will inspire you and ease those cold winter days!
- Media room and TV
- Party room for family and friends, bar and snacks
- Work and study
- Physical training
1. MEDIA ROOM AND TV
Generally darker, the basement is the perfect spot to develop a media centre . Remember that you must provide good sound proofing and sufficient number of electrical outlets. In addition, you need to plan the positioning of the various technical components.
