Pretty and Playful

HGTV fan trendytoes transformed her unfinished basement into a dream playroom for little girls. Soft blues and pinks are the perfect palette for this innocent and feminine child's space. A built-in shelving unit with small wicker baskets helps to keep toys organized and neatly stored, while still making them easy to reach for little ones.

Adults Only

This chic, industrial basement quickly became an at-home getaway for HGTV fan mbatcheller. The unfinished space was spiced up with warm chocolate hues and urban appeal, while providing all the warmth and coziness of an upstairs room. With a casual lounge area, wet bar and work studio, this is definitely a mature, toy-free zone.

A Family Affair

HGTV fan ntrainer turned an unfinished basement into an all-encompassing media room, playroom, mudroom, guest bedroom, bathroom and pantry. The child's playroom offers plenty of space to play on the rainbow-colored rug or at pint-size tables. A wall-to-wall shelving unit displays favorite toys, while keeping art supplies hidden in the cabinets.

Ready for Company

HGTV fan dezinr2b wanted to transform her unfinished basement into a place for both entertaining and relaxing. By blending traditional materials and furnishings with modern accessories, the space delivers a cozy, at-home feel with a party-ready vibe.

A Place for Him

A wood plank ceiling, hardwood floors and natural stonework set a rustic, outdoors tone for this basement-turned-ski lodge. A fully stocked bar and lounge area makes this the perfect place to relax after hitting the slopes or for watching sports on the weekends. Design by HGTV fan man-cave

Pool Time

Nothing says 'man cave' quite like an extra-large projector screen, fully stocked bar and billiards table. Traditional, masculine hues — like copper, chocolate brown, sage and tan — offer a warm color scheme without making the space feel dark and enclosed. Design by HGTV fan nickles0612

Chic and Sophisticated

This modern basement features all the amenities for a fun family gathering. "This is a sophisticated, multifunctional room where guests and family can enjoy drinks, dine, relax, watch television and play pool," HGTV fan MeyerRickertsen says. The grass-cloth wall covering, concrete countertops and warm brown hues set a soothing and relaxing tone in a formerly concrete-covered basement.

Brand-New Space

Originally a two-car garage, this space was transformed into a living area with a media room, bathroom, home office, laundry room and utility room. With crisp, white walls, modern furnishings and fresh, hardwood floors, it's hard to believe this room was once covered in cement. Design by HGTV fan skipp

Masculine Theme, Feminine Appeal

Who says sleek, contemporary decor and sports memorabilia can't go together? HGTV fan srodr1220 wanted to create an elegant, sports-themed basement the entire family could enjoy. By adding plenty of plush seating, a soft area rug and a stylish, kid-friendly mini bar, this space proves to be a place for both guys and girls.

Boy Zone

Foosball, air hockey and a video gaming station are just a few of the amenities in this teen man cave. HGTV fan stagehouse added an extra-large, cozy sectional and kept the decor simple and sleek to create the perfect space for him and all his friends.

Perhaps one of the best things about basement tiles is that you can install them yourself, requiring only a few simple preparations and a little bit of patience.

Tile flooring is an ideal option for basements because it's both durable and waterproof. In the unfortunate event of a leak or flood, a basement tile floor will dry out and remain undamaged in most cases.

Carpet tiles, or squares, are another popular option for basement floors. Carpet tiles are also easy to install and provide warmth to one of the colder rooms in a home. While they aren't waterproof, it's simple to replace only the damaged tile if a basement floods.
