Basement remodeling trends are going in several different directions in 2021. As we work through COVID, homeowners are still deciding how they are going to make the best use of space moving forward.

A basement can potentially be whatever you want it to be. So why not make it something worthwhile? Basement remodeling trends change every other year, depending on what’s in style and convenience. But there’s no denying the impact the pandemic has made on all of us and our homes.

Do you live in Omaha and dream of walking into a beautifully finished or remodeled basement? Can you imagine freshly painted walls, new furniture, maybe even a private bar? If so, then calling Royal Construction about basement remodeling is what you need to do!

Most homes have wasted space. Instead of wasting that extra space in the house, you love, why not make something useful out of it?  A basement remodel not only helps add extra space to your house but increases the market value of your home. If you plan on renovating your basement soon, here are a few ideas to take inspiration from! Here are some of the hottest basement remodeling trends in 2021!


If you want to increase your basement storage and living space while converting it into a design of your choice, then built-in shelving will help you out.

Built-in shelves make an ample storage space for many things, from showpieces to wine bottles, whatever you want to fit in. A good thing about the basement is that it has many nooks and crannies to build shelves and cupboards to store materials.

So instead of just cramming or throwing things on the basement floor, you can instead organize them in the built-ins and use the space otherwise, too!


One of the biggest basement remodeling trends in 2021 is to make things more colorful. And that means add colors to your basement of leaving it bland and dull. Adding a splash of colors on one or more walls or color-coding the entire place in complementary hues is a great way to set the place’s mood and help it give you the vibe you are looking for. You could either go for the subtle pastel colors or go bold with bright colors on your walls and sofa sets. Do you still need help choosing some colors? Our team of designers at Royal Construction Omaha are on hand to help!


Since the basements are partially or wholly underground. For this reason, there is little to no natural light. Depending on whether it can afford to have a window or not, you can add a window or two. No basement remodeling project is too small for Royal Construction.

Even if you can the windows are generally placed high on the walls, so very little light can enter the room. This causes the place to look dark & dingy.

No basement remodeling project is complete without installing some fun pendant lights, recessed lights, or lamps in there. You will be astonished at the remarkable difference that they make in the ambiance of the room!


If you are remodeling your basement, you probably want to have an extra room for yourself. But it can become bothersome to travel up and down the house just to use the laundry room or get yourself a snack. So instead of going to the bathroom and kitchen, get them to you! It doesn’t have to be luxurious either. Just a small bathroom with a sink and a toilet, and maybe a shower if you want one. Get the necessary things such as the stove, microwave, and fridge for your kitchen.

All of this can come in handy when you have a party down there and make things very suitable for you and your guests.


Having a standard living space in your basement is so 2020. Why not think about adding a twist to your house? Not only will it be convenient but also fun for you and your family.

Here are a few 2021 basement remodeling trends that help you make the most of your space.


Work from home, virtual schooling, this is the future. If not, just some homework or crafts would do too.

Simply add some built-in desks in basements converted into an office space. You can also add a playroom/ crafts room for your children. This is a great way to remodel your basement into something beneficial for all.


If you have an extra room like a basement in your house, it is an excellent idea to convert it into an in-house gymnasium!

Home gyms are trending right now and give you a feel of luxury and class. Accomplish your fitness goals right where you feel the most comfortable, within your home!


Having a basement kitchen or bar is among the most popular basement remodeling trends in 2021. Royal Construction is seeing a surge in requests since the pandemic started. Once you’re finished with your remodel, you can call your friends over and watch the big game!


What is better than having movie nights with the same theatre feels, without traveling to one? For instance, convert your dull basement into a home theatre or media room. You can do so by installing a flat-screen or big screen, some recliners, or a comfy sofa, and don’t forget the popcorn!
