38 Brilliantly Furnished Basements (Photo Gallery)

Updated on July 21, 2022

Gathering all of your friends and family for a big blowout is difficult enough. Putting them all in one basket of clutter that is your basement is another story. To help make entertaining in your newly renovated basement easier than ever, a well-planned event list that utilizes the layout of your basement is a big help to ease the traffic flow and sets the event in motion.

Guests can gather by the modular sectional sofa in front of the fireplace to orient themselves with an unfamiliar territory. An open bar is also a tried and tested favorite destination for imbibing newcomers. Treat your non-alcoholic guests to a convenience of having a cup of coffee ready whenever they please, like a cappuccino machine that is almost always perfect for parties. Chilled soft drinks like Coca-Cola are also recommended for a casual refreshment.

To help keep their minds off of things, amusement games like a foosball or pinball table can make a great way to pass time. If you live in the basement of a manse, it won’t hurt to install a few lines of a bowling game. If the budget is rather a little tight, you might want to opt to have an old-fashioned photo booth. Set it up with some smartphone apps which they can share on their social networks. Your guests will surely enjoy the novelty.

Without further adieu, below is a collection of brilliantly furnished basements that’s brimming with flavor and personality.
