5 Ways to Transform Your Basement Into A Modern Woman or Man Cave

Don’t take your basement for granted. It’s more than a storage space. Whether it is finished and furnished or completely empty, there are simple steps you can take to transform your basement into an underground entertainment center.


Before you move furniture down there, it is important that you find the right basement waterproofing company around Philadelphia to avoid potential disasters. Here at Rightway Waterproofing, we take pride in protecting the belongings that you earned through hard work. Avoiding flooded basements means avoiding mold and mildew. Avoiding mold and mildew means avoiding unnecessary emergencies later. Keeping your basement water-free keeps your pockets full and your mindset positive.


Speaking of a positive mindset, here are five steps for turning your basement into an epic woman/man cave.


  1. Create a plan.  Think about the image you want to portray. Do you want a particular theme? Sports? Crafts? Movies? Also, make sure you draw an accurate blueprint with measurements to make sure the items you want in there will fit.

  2. Obtain furniture.  This is an important one. No matter the age of the basement dwellers, people are going to want to sit down and relax. If you have a lot of guests, maybe you need a couple of couches. If a lot of your guests are from out of town, maybe a pull-out sofa bed. Other furniture to consider include recliners, bean bag chairs, tables, and any other item that suits the theme you decided on.

  3. Add electronics.  If you are going to watch TV, movies, or sports, you are going to to need a television. If you plan on hosting dance parties, you’ll need speakers, a mp3 player, or maybe even a computer or karaoke machine. Electronics are expensive, which is more reason you want to waterproof your basement before buying anything.

  4. Waterproof your basement.  Technically this should be part of Step 1, and its goal is to protect the items from Steps 2 & 3.

“We wanted to thank you for your personal and specialized attention to the water problem we had in our basement. You took the time to inspect the whole situation and gave us recommendations, all of which worked. You had a way of explaining the process and materials that would be used in a way that we understood. We are very pleased with the work that was done and would highly recommend your company to anyone.”

Debbie, Berwyn

“The day after Hurricane Irene, all of my neighbors basements were filled with water, while mine remained dry! It is wonderful, everything remains dry and the battery backup worked beautifully when my power was out for 2 days. Dry AND quiet, thank you, thank you! Thanks! Debbie, Berwyn”

-Debbie, Berwyn

Doug Smith, Glenside

“All I have to say is that Hurricane Irene was no match for the job that Rightway did for my basement and my father-in-law’s. I had my basement done 5 years ago and we are still bone dry and my father-inlaw’s was done last year and another dry basement… Great job! I highly recommend them for waterproofing and mold remediation.”

-Doug Smith, Glenside


“I’d highly recommend these guys for your basement. My basement has been dry since they installed a sump pump and French drain in June. They offer a competitive price, they get the job done quickly and they stand by their work. Please mention my name if you proceed down the road with these guys.”


Angelo and Sandra Patiri

“We had our basement waterproofed with Rightway Waterproofing in 2007, after all this time and just getting through Hurricane Irene, we did not get a drop of water in our basement. Rightway Waterproofing did a very good job and we are very satisfied!”
