Install Sufficient Ventilation
Considering the placement of this room, natural ventilation might not be sufficient if an individual is to spend significant amounts of time in that space. Installing an air conditioning system coupled with a dehumidifier is a good step in the right direction. Installing an Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) by the basement doorway can also encourage airflow from the rest of the house.
Insulate the Walls and Tile the Floor
Once the ventilation is addressed the floor and walls should be next when encouraging heat retention. There are several alternatives to choose from when it comes to wall insulation, including rigid foam, fiberglass, and mineral wool. Wood tiles are recommended for floor tiling options, as this material features impressive heat storage capacity.
Wall Cubicle Storage
Wall cubicle storage is a practical solution that saves on space and enhances aesthetics. It’s also a great means of utilizing dead wall space that would have otherwise incorporated a bland look that doesn’t blend with the rest of the room.
