Basement Game Room
Let the games begin! Whether it’s ping-pong, foosball, pool/billiards, air-hockey, cards, darts, board games or video games, a basement game room can become the most used and enjoyed room in the entire house, and possibly the most popular spot in the neighbourhood. If you’re looking to create a place where the kids can learn, play and compete, a basement game room is the answer.
Creating a basement game room to accommodate a pool/billiard table in particular does require some design considerations, specifically around structural support beams, plumbing downspouts, and room dimensions. You may also want to consider closets and/or cabinets to store gaming equipment and accessories.
Like many other rooms that have large items, you may want to consider getting the billiard table in the basement before the renovation to prevent possible damage to walls and ceilings from the move. With some basement renovations, ceiling height, staircase width and even some new inside walls can make moving larger items into the basement challenging. We can help you plan your basement project down to the last detail, including making sure you actually get the items you want in the basement. In some basements, support posts and major duct work can be moved, or even removed in order to make the most efficient use of the space.

Basement playrooms are perfect for kids of any age, and the space can change with them as they grow. When we design basement playrooms, one of the first features we plan for is storage. Storage is an important factor to consider when designing basement playrooms because your storage needs will change over time. The storage solutions must evolve from being child proof to child friendly as they get older. Toys of all shapes and sizes will need to be put away, and the right combination of storage solutions can keep basement playrooms orderly.
We also factor in things like flooring. Basement playrooms typically get a lot of use, wear and tear with strollers and ride on toys, so we often recommend commercial grade laminate floors. Area rugs are great for the early years to help cushion the frequent falls and tumbles.
Then, there is the paint. The right paint is important because at some point, they will be used as a canvas, capturing the creative coloring of the kids. Markers and crayons can become permanent stains if the right paint is not used.ys from their childhood.
It’s safety first for toddler play areas. Consider a neoprene sponge floor and avoid furniture with hard edges and sharp corners. It’s sound-proofing, sound-proofing, sound-proofing for playrooms for teens. Video games, drums, electric guitars are noisy!
