Many of us will only dream of an elaborate basement sports room. Let’s look at what’s possible with a healthy renovation budget, a qualified designer, and 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 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 (maybe both). Host family games and tournaments, and even keep a running competition 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 natural 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. Dad can head home to his basement and unwind when there isn’t time to hit the golf course. It makes an excellent activity for the whole family. Your parties just became a lot more fun!

What are the Benefits of a Basement Sports Room?

  1. It adds value to your home – that’s a given!
  2. It’s a place to host family birthday parties
  3. Your adult parties take on a whole new level of fun
  4. The kid’s sleepovers just topped all the other sleepovers
  5. The kids can perfect their sport from home
  6. It gives teenagers a safe place to gather
  7. A sports room encourages physical activity
  8. It helps establish communication and connection within the family
  9. The family puts down their devices and video games for a change!
  10. When the weather is terrible, or you don’t feel like going out, there’s something to do at home

How about a slide in the house? What?
