Basement Design Inspiration

Edgemont Walk, Boffo Properties latest community coming this fall to North Vancouver, has floor plans that are uniquely designed to maximize space and livability. Many Edgemont Walk floor plans feature basements that function as a versatile flex space and there are endless possibilities for what you can do with this extra room. Read below for inspiring ideas on how to furnish your basement.

LIBRARY. The basement would be an excellent room to showcase all your valued books and create a quiet, cozy spot to read. Even if you prefer e-books over paper you can still design a comfortable reading room but replace the bookshelves with floating shelves to show off your most prized possessions, family photos and personal achievements.

HOME GYM/YOGA STUDIO. The cooler temperature of the basement creates a comfortable environment for your at-home workout. First, place full length mirrors on one wall, then put down rubber mats or an area rug to cover the floor. Next, add in all the essential equipment: a treadmill and weights for a classic gym or yoga mats and a balance ball for a tranquil yoga studio.

WINE CELLAR. Wine enthusiasts know that the basement is the ideal place for storing (and drinking!) your finest vintages. First, start by choosing a wine fridge that will serve as the focal point of the room—there are so many beautifully designed options to suit any style. Then, add a wet bar with a chic counter and a few high stools. Lastly, create a relaxing lounge area to socialize with friends while sharing a bottle or two.

HOME THEATRE. Since the basement has less sunlight coming in, it is the perfect room for a deluxe home theatre—no glare on your big screen! A TV and a comfy sofa are all you really need, but feel free to add extras like theatre-style seats, a projector screen and an old fashioned popcorn machine.

PLAYROOM. Keep the kid’s toys out of your living room and use the basement as a safe place for your kids to play. There are so many fun themes you could explore depending on your child’s interests. Some themes to consider: African safari, surf beach or enchanted forest.
