Basement Inspo!

Oh boy, can you say basement?! I love, love, LOVE having a basement. Ok, so we've not even been in our new home for a week but I'm already in love with my basement. Coming from California, I've only ever dreamed of having this huge space to decorate, and now that I live in the mid-west, I'm as happy as a pig in mud!

Currently, my basement is housing all of our mattresses, as we've all been sleeping down there while I get our bedrooms put together and unpacked. Plus, it's sooooo much cooler down there, sleeping has been way better on these warm Summer nights. But I have plans, too many plans for this basement. I know it will take me some time to really figure out just how to configure the furnature layout. There is a full bedroom, full bathroom, two large walk-in closets, a regular closet, and a workshop, all off a large rec room. It's wonderful! Plus, it's been newly painted and has new carpet, a great neutral starting point. 

Here are some basement ideas I found on Pinterest... If you have anything to share, leave it in the comments or tag me on Pinterest (@ashasi)

We definitely want to add some sort of breakfast bar or kitchen for guests.

I want to turn one of the closets into a nook!

And the kids will need some space too!

  2. Great inspo!! I think I've actually pinned at least two of these! :) We don't have a basement but I love these ideas for creating cozy spaces that double in function. Have fun planning your basement space! Can't wait to see pics once you decide how to decorate the space!

  8. Now this is some serious basement inspo! Nothing is better than having a finished basement - when I was a teenager and had a ton of friends over always, we always were wanting our own space! Love all of these pics!
