Most Popular Denver Basement Finishing Projects

March 15, 2017

Are you thinking of transforming your basement? The first thing you have to figure out is what you want to do with your space. Do you need more living space? Do you want the basement to perform a certain function? Determine what your needs are and go from there. If you’re looking for a little inspiration, consider these popular Denver basement finishing ideas:

Fitness Rooms

If you can’t seem to find time to go to the gym, bring the gym equipment to your basement. The basement is the perfect space for a home gym as long as the ceilings are high enough for the equipment. Be sure to measure everything carefully before you begin the project so you don’t run into any problems. You should also choose the floor wisely. It must be comfortable enough for you to lay on while doing crunches, but durable enough to withstand the weight of the equipment.

Guest Bedrooms

Do you often have friends and family members stay with you when they’re in town? If your loved ones are sleeping on the couch, it may be wise to transform your basement into a guest bedroom. It’s recommended that you include a closet and bathroom in your new guest bedroom so your guests don’t have to walk upstairs to use the restroom or change clothes. This gives them much more privacy than they would get while sleeping on the couch, so your guests will thoroughly enjoy their visit.


It can be hard to get work done if you have kids running around and TVs blaring. If this sounds familiar, consider turning your basement into a home office so you can finally find a little a peace and quiet. Before you begin, be sure that you will be able to connect to the internet from this part of your house, otherwise it may not make sense to have a home office. Depending on the size of your basement, you may not need to use the whole space for a home office. You may be able to block off some of the basement for your office, and then continue to use the rest for storage.

Man Cave

If you don’t need a guest bedroom, home office, or gym, why not surprise the man of the house by transforming the basement into a man cave? Create a space with comfortable reclining chairs, a large flat-screen TV, and of course, a small refrigerator where he can keep drinks and snacks. If you have room, you might want to consider adding a pool table or foosball table as well.
