These days having a finished basement can be a great way to gather the family. Whether for weeknight fun or escape the wife/husband for a night with friends, snacks, and drinks. Previously the basement was for storing, hiding laundry machines, or stockpiling canned goods. For some, it’s just a dank, dark and creepy area of the house best avoided.
As a homeowner, it can be thrilling to add equity to your home by finishing your basement. You can transform it into a small suite for guests or an entirely separate apartment to rent out for excess cash during the year. With so much opportunity to be found in basements you may be wondering how to best use yours to your advantage. Using straight curtain tracks mounted in the ceiling can be an easy way to create a simple room divider. It can also be a great way to cover any basement windows to block out unwanted daylight.
Even if you have small basement windows you can create a big effect. Having ceiling-mounted curtains hanging in front of those small windows can go a long way in making the room look more put together and decorated. You don’t need to buy large curtains either. Curtains styled and sized specifically for smaller windows can have an impactful presence in your basement to add warmth, color, and character.
A great use for curtains and ceiling mounted tracks is to create separate spaces in your basement. If you want to use it for multiple purposes such as laundry, a kids play area, gym space, and a second living room, it can be done! There’s no need to erect walls or doors either. Instead, you can buy floor to ceiling curtains and simply install then with ceiling mounted tracks. It’s a great way to quickly pull the curtain shut for privacy and create a wall at the same time.
Storage and Privacy
Another great use of straight curtain tracks in your basement is to hide certain items for privacy. For many, the basement is where you store your holiday decorations and excess clothing. You can simply pull a curtain around them, or a uniformed look that keeps it from view.
