Who doesn’t like some extra space in their homes? Traditionally a matter of household requirement, basements have always proved their utility. Especially now, during the days of depleting resources, it has become a matter of efficiency. Accounting for 20 percent of a home’s total heat loss, basements are playing an imperative role in promoting green living.
European countries adopted basements in their houses long before we discovered its advantages, mainly due to their multi-use potentials and climate zones, but now it’s time every city in India should consider this option.
From being used as an additional room or seeking extra space for recreational activities such as a home theatre space or a gymnasium space or even a bar lounge or a gaming zone, a basement in a home offers a bounty of benefits. Some of them are mentioned below:

Whether you want to run a consultancy or operate a boutique store, you can do from your very own space. Your home with a basement gives you the flexibility to customize your own workspace; use multiple textures and surfaces to give your place of work a high-end look.
An interesting way to use your basement is to transform it into a swanky theatre. The basement is the most appropriate space in your villa for having a media room and home theatres. Get the interiors of your basement designed for superior acoustics, furnish the space with your choice of comfortable recliners and install hi-tech home automation systems to create an entertainment space you can flaunt to your guests.
A basement is also a good place for your workout. The space can be well utilized by placing bulky high-end gym equipment, which otherwise one can’t accommodate within a home. An open basement also allows adequate space for free-hand exercise. Now all you need is a little motivation to keep yourself fit & healthy. It not only saves your time as you no longer have to step out to hit a gym & wait for your turn to use the equipment of your choice.
