Finished Basement Trends for Atlanta New Homes

 

At Ashton Woods Homes, we love to help our homeowners personalize their Atlanta new homes.  Our Design Studio has everything you need to create a contemporary kitchen or personalize everything from the ceilings to the floors.  One trend we’re seeing is an increased interest in finished basements, especially among families.  Many of our new home communities offer basement homesites.  If you are not sure what to do with all the extra space, here are some ideas to spark your creativity.

  • Exercise Room – Why pay an annual gym membership when you can have a private fitness center in your home?  Add a stationary bike, some free weights and any other equipment you like.  Don’t forget to add a refrigerator for storing water and protein shakes.
  • Home Theater – If your family enjoys going to the movies, turn your basement into a media center.  Add a television and some surround sound speakers to create a fun experience for everyone.  To really make it feel like the movies, you could even buy a popcorn maker.
  • Game Room - Turn your basement into a game room by adding a pool table, Foosball table or air hockey  table.  Or create an arcade with some pinball machines or game cabinets.
  • Lounge Area – Is your house perfect for entertaining friends and family?  Enhance the experience by turning your basement into a lounge area.  Add a bar and some cozy furniture to create a space that will make your home the envy of the neighborhood.
     
     
     
    Regardless of how you want to personalize your Atlanta new home, we can help create the perfect space to suit your needs.
