Install them away from the furnace and install a carbon monoxide detector for safety. 8 Install Lights The basement is one of the darkest places in any home. You should use as many artificial lights as possible to keep it bright. Use LED lights for better energy-efficiency and low power bills. You can also install some windows to let in natural light and wind from time to time. 9 Insulate Basement Proper insulation is important to keep the room warm and dry. You can cover exposed pipes and plug any gaps in the room to prevent warm air from escaping it especially around the windows. 10 Furnish Practically When you furnish the room think more about functions than aesthetics.
