Basement Office/Family Room Design Board

It’s time to make some changes to our basement. See lots of inspiration behind my new basement office/family room design!

2020 has been the year of changes – no doubt. One of the biggest changes for most families with little ones is the schooling situation. We were actually homeschooling last year but I only had a 7th grader. Now I have an 8th grader and a kindergartener! So, we need an area that is free of distractions and can be exclusively used for schooling. And where is that place in our home? I finally decided it’s our unused basement. So I’ve been on the hunt in Pinterest to help give me ideas on ways to create a basement office/family combo that will serve all our needs and hopefully be stylish too. 

First, let me show you all the gorgeous family desk/office areas I found.

Starting everything off with this beauty. Love the built-in look and the little table area right behind the desks. This is a school set up dream come true!

Here’s another built in desk that lines the walls in a u-shaped form in this bonus room home design. I need this bonus room in my house! Actually, I would take a couple bonus rooms for our home. 🙂

Love this built in wall desk with all the high bookcases. So much beautiful storage right here!

This wall desk set up is really nice too! I just need to expanded it for one more person. But it’s giving me some good ideas!

So after seeing all that inspiration, I finally got some ideas together and decided on the look for our basement. 

Here’s my basement office/family room design mood board.

So, I hope to make some big progress on this space over the next week or so. First I have a to knock out a triangular shelf and patch the wall. And that means I’m going to learn how to drywall soon. Always learning over here.  🙂 But that’s how I can hopefully inspire you along the way too. (Check out my Instgram stories to see what I mean and follow along in the transformation process!)

So did you have to get creative with your school situation this year?
