Create the Perfect Space for Fun and Entertainment With Denver Basement Finishing

March 12, 2018

It’s more popular now than ever to refinish a basement. Whether you want to create a man-cave or a home theater, or if you just want a space that is perfect for entertaining, Denver basement finishing is a great way to add square footage—and fun!—to your home.

Whether you are looking for something that is relaxing and functional, or whether you want to create more formal look, the changes you can make to your basement are limited only by your imagination. 

Let’s take a look at some of the ways people are turning their basements into livable spaces the entire family can enjoy.


Adding a man-cave to homes has become popular in recent years as a way for the man of the house to have a spot for beers and buddies to watch sports and hang out—a masculine retreat of sorts. It can also be a great place to display sports memorabilia and other collectibles.

Home Theater

With the televisions and electronics we have available today, it’s no wonder that creating a home theater is so popular. A basement is a great place to create a home theater because there is plenty of room and it can pretty easily be soundproofed so noise isn’t heard on the floors above.

Most people choose to recreate the movie theater experience as close as possible by having a surround sound system installed. A 7.1 system has seven speakers and a subwoofer that will make you feel like you are part of the movie.

Invest in the best TV you can find, but keep the screen size appropriate for the size of space you are remodeling.

HGTV has some great tips in this article on how to create a home theater in your basement that will wow your family and friends.

Game Room

From video games to a pool table, your finished basement can be a fun place for everyone to hang out. If you have the space, a ping pong table, foosball table, air hockey system, or dartboard can be added to the mix. Don’t forget to put in a table for some good old-fashioned fun: Everyone loves a game of cards or Monopoly.

Rec Room

If you are looking to create a place to hold parties, a rec room that includes a bar is a great place for entertaining. You can also incorporate games and a big screen television into the mix. Don’t forget the music system with surround sound.

A wet bar with a refrigerator for canned beverages and a wine refrigerator for wine makes a great addition. Add shelving to display glassware as well as libations, and you are ready for the next fun event.
