Finishing A Basement w/o Construction.

eerriikkaaAugust 12, 2008

My boyfriend just moved into a new house, and is currently sleeping in the basement. The basement is completely unfinished, except for the lighting and the electrical work. I was looking for ideas, of cheap/easy ways to finish the basement without construction but still have a comfortable "finished" type of look. The main area I need help with is the walls. Any ideas?

yea, you can easily paint gray concrete walls with some brighter cheerful color. Throw rugs or cheap carpet for the floor. There have been several threads and good ideas on this topic. Do some searching. Good luck.
