Ideas for Creating a Cozy Basement Bedroom
Add an attractive, comfortable bedroom to the basement to welcome guests or accommodate a growing family.
The basement can be one of the best rooms in the house for a teenager, aging parent or long-term guest—if you pay a little attention to some of its unique characteristics when planning it out. Some interior design rules apply when it comes to basement renovations; get some inspiration from these cozy, comfortable basement bedrooms that prove there’s plenty of style to be found below ground. (It can also boost your home price, as most potential buyers would far prefer a finished room over a dank basement.)
Create coziness with color
Painting is an easy way to infuse a basement bedroom with cozy character. Chocolate-brown walls wrap this walkout basement with inviting warmth. A sisal rug and light-brown ceiling mirror each other in tone and hue, and the white crown molding and baseboard add crisp accents. This rich, dark scheme is successful because French doors admit plenty of natural light. In a basement with only an egress window, you might want to include sconces or additional table lamps to keep the room from feeling too dark.
