What to do with an Unfinished Basement


Although currently dimly lit and a little rough on the eyes, your unfinished basement still has a lot of potential. With just a little love and the help of the following ideas, you can spice it up in no time and get some great use out of the space.


Add a pop of colour. Give your basement a whole different look without a big renovation by adding some colour to the space. Consider painting and sealing the floors, opening up the room by painting the rafters white or a light colour, or creating a bold accent wall.


Divide the space. Want to make your basement a multi-use room? Partition out the area by installing an inexpensive curtain system. This can be done either with a curtain track or a simple wire, some hooks, and curtains will suffice.


Add foam mats. Whether you’d like to use the basement as a home gym to get a quick workout in or a place for the kids to play and rough house, adding some foam mats into the mix is a great and easy solution. They come in various colours and can quickly be picked up and tucked away if need be.


Use a large rug. As an alternative to adding mats, find a large, eye-catching rug to be used as a focal point and furnish the area around it.


Add lighting. Basements often offer very little built-in lighting and few outlets around the room. Consider stringing café lighting across the space from the rafters to give a nice ambience and glow without any difficult electrical work.
