Regardless of the dimensions of your basement, you can’t really deny that it’s an area that needs more than anything else in order to feel inviting and even like home. For the décor-wise, the basement can be treated like any other room. However, there are some elements that need to be taken into consideration. The basement media room, for example, needs to be minimalist. There’s not much to it really and you can find lots of inspiration in design books and magazines. But when it comes to choosing a style, there’s an interesting and eye-catching ways of creating a space that doesn’t necessarily have to correspond with a specific style.
Modern media rooms.
The basic elements that are included in a basement media room include a wall that’s covered in plywood, two sliding doors that hide the appliances if necessary and blackout panels for the ceiling.
They all integrate perfectly in this space and they’re just the perfect design element to make the area feel cozy, warm and welcoming. In addition to that, the basement can also be ideal for a home theater.
A traditional media room.
This is a traditional media room. It has high ceilings, exposed beams, a beautiful chandelier above the wooden coffee table and traditional fireplace, a perfect combination of materials. there are also bookshelves for storing the media equipment.
The basement can also be a great place for a small home theater or a sundeck. It’s quiet and well-prepared and you don’t have to go far to reach it.
Having a wine cellar in the basement is definitely very impressive and unusual. But it’s not the only interesting thing about this space. Since it’s not actually used for wine, a special feature can be its rustic interior design.
The basement has so much more to offer than just that. For example, this space has a fireplace, a movie theatre, a reading area and a wine cellar. All of these spaces were carved out of the three levels.
There’s also a recreational facility in the basement and it has a sauna, a fitness room, a hot tub, a sauna, a steam room and a kitchenette area. The basement has also an elevator, a gaming room, a home cinema, a media room and several others.
Designers and architects.
All these details are meant to make the basement more enjoyable, more interesting and also useful. It’s why the architects and designers needed to find a way to include all these facilities in this small space.
They included in the design a variety of welcome areas such as a bar, a restaurant, a lounge area, a kitchenette, a foyer and a powder room. The basement also has a bar, another place where the guests can enjoy a meal or a drink and a zen-type terrace.
