Three tips for livening up your basement or den

If you have a basement or a den that's been converted into an entertainment space for your family, you know how important it is to create a cozy feeling in this area. It can be difficult to make a basement seem homey, but the proper discount window treatments and furnishings can make all the difference. Here are some tips on how to revitalize your basement or den and turn it into a warm, welcoming space.

1. Bring in window treatments that allow light.
Sunlight is crucial in a den or a basement, even if you only have small windows that allow a minimal amount of illumination into the room. Be sure to select window treatments that permit light to flow through the space throughout most of the day such as cellular shades. These shades can allow you to easily control how much sunlight comes into the den and create privacy when necessary.

2. Use area rugs.
Many dens and basements don't have carpeting because it can be difficult to maintain in a room where moisture is prone to building up. However, this doesn't mean that you can't put down decorative area rugs. The right rug can give your den a cozy feeling and create a sense of comfort underfoot. As an added bonus, area rugs can help retain heat, which is key in a room that may be partially below ground.

3. Incorporate reflective surfaces.
Lacking natural light in your den or basement? TLC.com recommends bringing in reflective surfaces such as mirrors to bounce more light throughout the room. Furthermore, mirrors can help create the illusion of more space which is ideal in a tight room such as a den. Together, these three tips can help you develop another cozy, frequently-used space in your home.
