Are you considering decluttering your basement and transforming it into a stylish entertainment area? Use floating shelves to say goodbye to chaos and hello to beautiful storage and design. Explore these tips for using floating shelves to create an open concept and maximize your storage while creating a stunning basement entertainment area. 

Create an Open Concept with Floating Shelves

Basements in many homes are a drab, sometimes even dark, space. Floating shelves are an excellent solution for creating storage to make the space functional while eliminating the need for bulky traditional cabinets and bookcases. The way they’re hung – appearing to “float” on the wall (hence the name) – helps create the illusion of a larger space. Even the smallest, most dreary basement can transform into an inviting entertainment space with floating shelves.

Use Floating Shelves to Create a Visual Entertainment Area

Enhancing the space in your basement with floating shelves is an excellent way to create a fun entertainment space to watch movies and relax. Start by hanging your TV, then add floating shelves around it to create a gallery wall - making a focal point for the space. 

These floating shelves will draw the eye toward the TV area and serve as a spot to put electronic gadgets and media items. A deep floating shelf under the TV is ideal for gaming consoles, dish boxes, and speakers. Add aesthetic to the space by using zip ties to control the cords and add baskets to store remotes and controllers.

Maximize Storage Space with Floor-to-Ceiling Shelves

Using floor-to-ceiling floating shelves is one of the best ways to maximize storage space in your basement. They’re available in various finishes, lengths, and styles to complement the rest of your basement aesthetic. Plus, they hold up to 35 pounds of weight (and sometimes more), so you can rest assured that your items will be safely stored atop the shelves.

Hang the floor-to-ceiling floating shelves on both sides of your TV to complete the above-mentioned focal wall. This is an excellent place to put décor, photos, books, art, sculptures, plants, and storage baskets. Mixing the storage and décor items will give the space a perfectly functional and homey feel. 

Design a Stylish Bar Area with Floating Shelves

Extend the basement entertainment space you’ve created to a bar area that displays your favorite spirits and mixers. Use floating shelves to create a dry bar or a few shelves above a sink to complete an entire wet bar space. These will be ideal for displaying your favorite bottles, unique glasses, cocktail shakers, and decanters. 

And what bar is complete without perfect lighting? Illuminate your bar area with LED-lighted floating shelves in a finish that is complementary to your TV entertainment area. This will not only light up your bar – it’ll seamlessly blend the two entertainment spaces together. 

Create Your Perfect Basement Entertainment Space with Floating Shelves
