As Pembroke’s top basement finishing company, we’ve seen people create truly amazing, comfortable functional spaces out of their basements. Some families choose to turn their basements into home theaters, which is great if you love movies. Other people are using their basements to create additional living space, either for adult children or their parents – this is a practical, budget friendly way to make sure everyone has quiet and privacy. And increasingly, people are turning their basements into private gyms. Here are three reasons you might want to think about doing that too:
- Work out when you want to: Having your basement turned into a private home gym means you’ve got 24/7 access, 365 days a year. Can’t sleep? You can work out at 3 am! Don’t worry about the nasty weather making commuting to the gym a pain – you’ve got your own workout facility conveniently at home.
- Work out with who you want to: Sometimes the people at the gym aren’t exactly nice. Skip the cliques and gym rat types who always have something ‘helpful’ to say by working out in your own private gym. Want to have your friends with you? It’s your house – invite them over! The gym is never crowded when it’s full of people you like.
- Save a ton of money. A gym membership can take a hefty chunk of change out of your bank account every month. Having your basement transformed into a home gym isn’t exactly free, but it is an affordable one time expense. Afterward, you have a valuable asset that increases the comfort, enjoyment and value of your home.
