Six Exciting Ideas for Your Basement Conversion

There may come a time when you have outgrown your home but don’t have the garden capacity to build an extension or the financial capability to relocate to a bigger property. In times like these, instead of looking out or away from your house, why not look below?

Many of us are guilty of neglecting our basements, filling them with old furniture and boxes and allowing them to fall into dingy disrepute. We here at Keystone Construction see this room as a space with lots of potentials, and so in today’s blog we’ve taken a look at some fantastic ideas for a basement conversion:


With your own private gym just a few steps away, think how much more motivated you will be getting up for those early morning fitness sessions! Create a studio for a range of different workouts including yoga, pilates, and Zumba, or simply install standard gym equipment for classic strength training and cardio.

Play Room

Give the children a fun place that’s just for them and will ensure they stay entertained for hours. Durability is the keyword for your basement conversion in this instance; choose hard-wearing carpets and furniture that can stand up to the many stains and spills that will appear over time.

Extra Bedroom

Having a room in which guests can stay over will certainly promote you as the host of choice with your friends and family. If your basement conversion doesn’t have windows then you will want to compensate for the lack of natural light. Place mirrors behind floor and table lamps to encourage light to radiate around the room and give it a more spacious feel.

Wine Cellar

All the wine aficionados out there in Blackpool will enjoy our next suggestion – a stunning wine cellar right beneath your feet, perfect for housing those expensive vintages and favourite tipples. Approach this with a classic mahogany look in mind or go for something more contemporary with stainless steel wine racks.

Utility Room

The team here at Keystone Construction believe that anything which makes laundry less of a chore can only be a good thing. You can certainly ease the tiresomeness of laundry day by having a place specifically for your washing and ironing. As well as having space for a washing machine, tumble dryer, and airers, you can store a range of household essentials; make the most of cupboard units and wall hooks for all of your cleaning products, shoes, and coats.


When you are a flat owner in Blackpool or simply live in an urban area you may not have the luxury of garage space. If you make a living as a labourer, specialise in a skill such as woodworking, or just do general DIY, why not set up a workshop in your basement conversion? You can make the most of your space with portable tables and workstands that can be moved around as needed with each different project.
