If you live in Edmonton or the surrounding areas, you know we spend a lot of time indoors. So, having a developed basement you love does more than just provide extra space – it’s a vital part of a happy lifestyle. A high-end basement renovation can help you through the long, cold winters and should be tailored to fit your specific needs and desires.
Whether you’re looking for a place to relax and watch movies, or you want a space where you can invite all your friends over for some fun, we’ve got the perfect ideas for you! We also have a couple of beautiful renovation ideas that are a bit more unique for those looking to really put some “wow” into their basement space.
One popular luxury basement design idea in the Edmonton area is to create a home theatre. This can be a great place to relax and escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. You can install comfortable seating, a big-screen TV or projector, and all the latest audio equipment to make your home theatre the perfect place to unwind. It’s important to get professional help with this renovation so details such as sound proofing, wiring and space flow aren’t overlooked.
Golf is one of the most missed activities during the winter months. It is now possible and reasonable enough now to have your own indoor golf simulator. This is a great way to spend time with friends.
Say what?! A high-end basement space isn’t just for lounging around and watching TV. You can also use it to entertain guests with some fun activities. If you want a basement transformation that will leave everyone talking, going for something a bit different than the norm is a great way to achieve that “wow” factor. A bowling alley is a great option to keep everyone in the family entertained, and it’s not as complicated as it sounds. While we haven’t installed one ourselves (YET!), there are companies now manufacturing home bowling lanes that makes installing one a more realistic option.
If you’re looking to add a touch of luxury to your basement, why not consider putting in a wine room? You can use high-end materials and finishes such as wood planks, stone and high-end shelving for wine storage to create a space that looks and feels like an upscale wine bar. The best part is you don’t need a lot of space for this. Whether you use a small room, the corner of a larger room, under the stairs, or use most of your basement space, there is a design out there for it.
If you are a cigar aficionado, then you know that there is no better place to enjoy a good smoke than in the company of others who share your passion right in your own home. A cigar lounge can be the perfect addition to your luxury basement renovation.
It will provide a space where you and your friends can relax and chat while enjoying some of the finest cigars in the world. Things a professional can help you with when renovating this space include air flow and venting, humidity control and general design.
When most people think about beautiful basements, the first thing that comes to mind is usually a home theatre. While this can be a great option, there are many other possibilities for turning your basement into a space that’s tailored to your unique interests. For example, if you’re a gamer, why not turn your basement into a gaming room?
It’s not just as simple as plunking a gamer chair in front of your basement TV. To make this a truly beautiful renovation, work with your contractor to plan the space for details such as lighting, wiring, easy access to food and beverages with the installation of a bar, and a custom entertainment unit to house your custom-built gaming PCs or large TV.
You can also add luxury touches like comfortable chairs, surround sound and neon lights.
Wine not your thing? Your basement can be a great place to create a whiskey lounge atmosphere. The perfect space to relax and enjoy some of your favourite whiskeys can be created with some proper planning and an idea of what ambiance you want. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Start by choosing a comfortable seating area with plush sofas or chairs. Then, add a couple of coffee tables and side tables to hold drinks and snacks.
- Next, add some mood lighting. You can use floor & table lamps, install recessed lighting, or even sconces on the walls.
- Add in some décor to give your lounge a personal touch. For example, try adding some artwork or photos, along with some plants or flowers.

One of the most popular basement renovations is the home gym. This can be as simple as adding weight machines and a bench or building out a full-blown workout area with the latest bells and whistles. But, if you’re looking for more robust ideas, there are plenty of online resources to show you how to make the most of your space and we can help you bring them to life in your own home.
One thing to consider is the type of equipment you want to include in your gym. For example, if you have a lot of space, you might want to invest in some heavy-duty machines that can handle multiple users. But if you’re working with a limited amount of square footage, you may be better off opting for a more compact setup. A professional can help you determine flooring, custom shelving, safety and any extra electrical work that may be needed to handle the circuit load.
Another popular choice for luxury basement renovations is turning the space into a library or reading room. If you have an extensive collection of books, this is the perfect place to showcase them.
Adding some decorative touches, such as wainscotting, crown molding and built ins really gives it that high-end result you’re looking for. The addition of rugs and paintings to finish it off makes the space more inviting, and somewhere you’ll use more often.
We hope you found these high-end basement ideas inspiring and are now motivated to renovate your own space!
