Not your grandparents’ basement

by Shea Homes Arizona on June 29, 2012

Let’s all say it… The days of spooky furnaces at the end of cobwebbed staircases are over. Instead, today’s basements are the hub of entertainment and family fun. 

Whether you’re a movie buff, need the perfect place to watch the Big Game or enough space for lots of little people to run around, a well designed basement can be the perfect solution. 

When deciding how to use your basement, spend a little time dreaming. Make a list of all the ways you might use your basement. If you have kids, ask for their ideas too. Think about the other living spaces in your house. What gaps could your basement space fill? Do you need another work space? Or more room for entertaining guests? 

If you need a little inspiration, take a look at a few examples from one of our Shea Homes Arizona models below, and keep in mind, the perfect basement is the one that your family will use (and hopefully have some fun in).
