Basement Finishing Ideas: Recreation Room

Basement Finishing Ideas: Recreation Room - Image 1


Our customers choose to finish their basements for many different reasons. One of the main reasons being that they can efficiently add livable space to their home while increasing the equity in their home at the same time. Whatever the reason for the decision may be, the next step is where the fun comes in, deciding what to do with the new space in your home. Whether it be adding a bedroom, creating a home theater, or anything in between we would like to help begin the creative process by providing you with great ideas for your finished basement.

In this post we would like to focus on one of the more fun options, a recreation room. Your finished basement is a blank canvas to use your personality, interests, and creative energy to paint into an enjoyable work of art. If you enjoy playing games entertaining friends and family in your home you may wish to consider a recreation room.

Depending on the size of your finished basement there are several options for how you can make the most of the space.


There’s nothing better on a rainy day than having an indoor space filled with hours of entertainment. Your interests may lead you to choose one of the following finished basement recreation room ideas:

  • Board Games
  • Bubble Hockey
  • Billiards
  • Table Tennis
  • Classic Arcade Games (remember Pac Man?)
  • Air Hockey
  • Card Table (have the next Poker night at your house!)

Entertaining Space

Many customers enjoy using their newly finished space to entertain guests in their home. Usually, this includes a bar or secondary kitchen space. There are a few important option considerations when designing this addition to your basement:

  • Wet or Dry Bar?
  • Counter Tops

  • Appliances
  • Television
  • Wall Decor
