 Transform your basement through simple updates
Transform your basement through simple updates
If your finished basement has gotten its fair share of use by your children over the years, consider turning this extra room into a place where you can relax and hang out - without toys and cartoons on the TV.

Clear the clutter and take a good look at the layout to fully capitalize on the available space. Consider what you'd want in your extra room, whether it's a bar, pool table, wine cellar or even just another space geared towards relaxed fun. Once you've figured out a style, HGTV suggests you paint the room in a brighter shade to keep the area looking clean and vibrant - after all, it's still a basement.

Next, select the type of furniture in order to continue the transformation - perhaps an over-sized couch and a few cozy chairs will do the trick, or maybe a mahogany bar and leather stools will look great if you plan on an adults-only basement.

Purchasing new window treatments will also enhance your look and help to tie your pieces together. Fabric roller shades may work since they're available in numerous styles and patterns, making it easy to find one that complements your design.

Don't throw in the towel when it comes to your interior design - embrace these changes to gain a bonus room you can finally enjoy.
