There are so many design options to consider when remodeling your New Jersey basement. Quality 1st Basement Systems wants to make it easy for you. We have listed a few popular basement remodeling options that you might want to consider.


A basement turned into a home theater in Toms River

Home Theater/Media Room

If you're a movie buff, isn't it time you had a screening room where your family and friends can relax and enjoy the best that Hollywood has to offer?

Built-in cabinetry on either side of a big flat-screen TV will enable you to hide wiring and store DVDs. Put ceiling and wall sconce lights on separate switches so you can turn the brighter ceiling lights off during the movie. Don't forget to make room for reclining lounge chairs with small side tables for popcorn and beverages.

The basement is a perfect location for a basement bar where family and friends can gather to enjoy a nice cocktail together. Splurge on a neon sign to set the mood, and consider adding a basement bathroom to eliminate trips upstairs. Last but not least: a compact refrigerator and plenty of seating.
