What is your home missing? More specifically, what is your basement missing? Is it just a place where you do your laundry and keep all your “stuff?” If so, that’s a shame because a finished basement can add a lot of value to a home. It might be that the basement you have is the basement you inherited when you bought the house. Depending on the year when the original basement was finished you might have some 70’s faux wood paneled walls and shag carpet. It’s amazing what a little imagination and elbow grease can do to convert your “wasted” basement space into one of the best rooms in the house.
Today it’s easy to bring the movie theatre experience right into your own home. For those who really want to create a unique TV watching experience the basement is the perfect pick for a screening room. While that might sound like a fancy room that only found in Beverly Hills, the truth is that many developers are now including a screening room in the homes they’re building. It’s the kind of bonus feature that really improves the look and value of a home. To turn you own basement into a screening room could have you considering hiring a contractor to do the job right. Of course, if you’ve got a bit of the DIY spirit then you could tackle the project without a lot of fuss. One area where you might be in over your head would be running cables for your TV, Blu Ray player and surround sound system. Luckily, these set ups are so popular that you shouldn’t have any trouble finding an affordable installer working in the Cincinnati area.
Because you’ll be refinishing your basement from scratch with the goal of a screening room you can really do it up right with speakers sunk into the wall and hidden wires. While you’re at it also think about dimmer lights to set the proper mood. You can even get an old fashioned popcorn machine for your own fresh popped corn.
Before you begin your basement make-over project you might have to get rid of the junk. Or if you want to wait until you start the project, you could end up with piles of that old wood paneling that have to be tossed out. Either way, your best bet would be to hire a team of professional junk haulers like Junk King Cincinnati to get the job done. These professional junk haulers will show up at your home for a scheduled appointment with a truck big enough to cart off whatever you need taken away. They also won’t have a probably climbing up and down those basement stairs. Better them then you! While they are clearing out the basement, you could also target some other bulky pieces of junk you’d like them to take away. Why not fill up the truck? That’s what it’s there for! Start the project this weekend and in a few weeks you could be watching blockbusters from your own basement!
