Basement Decorating Ideas:

5. Having dinner parties with family and friends is always a great thing to do. We can have a kitchen in the basement with a dinner table and chairs across from the kitchen. To make this place even more interesting, we can have a set of pool table or ping pong table so that we can play pool or ping pong with family and friends.
6. Some kids have a dream to be a musician, so we can use a basement for them to practice playing musical instrument here. Decorate the place with things related to music. Have their favorite musicians’ photos hanging on the walls. If it is possible, have a complete musical instruments like for a band. So your kids can be with their friends forming a band and create their own music. Who knows someday they will become famous musicians?
