Basement Workout Room

This project started out as a simple idea to put a wall up between my wife’s workout area and my basement workshop … to keep dust off of everything … and then our ideas went a little bit overboard. I ended up finding some 2nd hand mirrors, framing in 3 walls (with vapor barriers, insulation, PT base, etc.), adding quite a few outlets and lights, building 2 sliding barn doors by hand (so the opening to the shop would be 6 ft wide), and installing commercial carpet tiles in the workout room. This was my first time installing commercial carpet tiles and I highly recommend them because they are inexpensive, durable and was very simple to install. Well worth weeks of work, even after spending 3 hours to clean up all of the dust in the workshop! Can’t wait to get the wall bracket in so I can hang the TV and enjoy!

  • I love this! We are about to finish our basement with part being a workout room. This is great inspiration. I'm digging the color too. Thank you for sharing!
