Basement. Tuck a small workout area right beneath that awkward space at the bottom of the stairs in the basement. Don't trick yourself into thinking you need an entire room to devote to exercising — you'd be surprised at how your favorite equipment can fit into a tight space.
With its typically big, open floor plan, a basement is a great place to set up shop. Placed next to the staircase, this space-efficient gym uses an elevated platform to help divide the large room without any constricting walls.
5. Stair workout. Tuck a small workout space right beneath that awkward area under the stairs to your basement. Remember, you don't need an entire room to devote to exercising. Place your favorite equipment into the tightest spaces and you'll never have an excuse to miss a workout again.
And yes, an exercise area that's light and comfortable and, most important of all, a place I'll actually want to exercise in.
