Making interior design choices is never easy. Every single aspect plays an important role in the overall look you’re going for. This especially applies to basements. When you hear the word “basement” it’s often preceded by the word “unfinished.” Which does make sense, there’s a ton of space to use! If you’re looking for creative ways to fill out or remodel your basement, here are five creative basement decoration ideas.
Keep in mind, not all of these are brand new ideas (nor are they easy or cheap to install). In fact, many of them have been used for years, but some things simply never go out of style!
A basement is a traditionally perfect place for an entertainment center, and for good reason! Designating a room specifically for your entertainment center, or for a complete home-theater, can make a huge difference in your viewing experience. Paired with shelving or even a nearby fireplace, an entertainment center is an excellent basement decoration choice.

When first entering a home, the ceiling isn’t typically the first thing you notice. But that certainly doesn’t make it any less important! A creative ceiling design can really compliment the overall appearance of a room. From LEDs arranged in intricate patterns to tray ceilings delightfully paired with a fully-functional kitchen, there are definitely plenty of outside-the-box ideas to choose from!

Aside from obviously providing structural support, stand alone columns can really add a sophisticated and polished look to a basement interior. They can be used to beautifully frame an entrance to another room. If your basement feels as though it’s missing something, even a single pillar can really tie a room together.

A fireplace is a great addition to a basement. The mesmerizing and pleasant effects of a crackling-fire provide a calming effect to those surrounding, making it a perfect addition to a family room or seating area. It also pairs quite well with a nearby entertainment center or bookshelves!
