Many of us only will only dream of an elaborate basement sports room. Let’s take a look at what’s possible with a healthy renovation budget, a qualified designer and a creative imagination.
If you could choose one, which of the five basement sports rooms featured below would you prefer in your home?
1. An Indoor Skateboard Park
When you want to skateboard, head downstairs to your own indoor skateboard park. This elaborate one-of-a-kind design is sure to get the neighborhood talking. Imagine the kids gathering in their Skateboard room and getting exercise for possibly hours. Even the adults will enjoy it.
2. An Indoor Bowling Room
An indoor bowling alley! Who wouldn’t want one in their basement sports room! Imagine hosting a bowling party in your home, or tournaments. It’s a dream basement, is it you?
3. An Indoor Basketball Court
An indoor basketball court. YES! A place for fun, relaxation, and getting your frustrations out, all in your own home. After a hard day at work, grab the basketball instead of a drink, or both. Host family games, tournaments, and even keep a running competition going between family members. Again, best of all, it takes the family off their devices and encourages physical activity.
4. An Indoor Hockey Rink
Indoor hockey rinks are not made with real ice. They’re synthetic … a solid polymer material designed to be used with ice skates. If the kids are part of a hockey team, an indoor hockey rink gives them a place to practice their sport. Everyone will want to gather at your home. Not a problem, a perk.
5. An Indoor Golf Area
Forget it. This one’s for dad. When there isn’t time to hit the golf course, dad can head home to his basement and unwind. Actually it makes an excellent activity for the whole family. Your parties just became a lot more fun!
