This is something of a rarity, especially nowadays, but it does still bear mentioning. If you’re building your play room in your basement, or any really large room, this is definitely the way to go. The main downside is that building a full dungeon can be rather expensive. There are a few ways to offset this cost but they require you to have access to power tools and/or be very good with your hands.

First off, as usual, is storing your miscellaneous equipment. With all of the room available to you, there’s no reason not to show off all of your gear. A good way to do this is with wall mounts for your bigger pieces, as usual, and a pegboard. Yes, you read that right, you use a pegboard like the kind you hang tools on. You may want to paint the board to have it match with the rest of your room. It’s a cheap, but highly effective, way of storing your gear in easy reach. You can also get an armoire as before but most people find having all of their equipment displayed makes it easier for them to get what they need. One hook apiece is all you need for most of your equipment, since most smaller items tend to be leather or fabric for the most part, but you may want to set up a few extra pegs for hanging riding crops or the like horizontally. Painting the hooks is a good idea, unless you like the chrome look, to match them with the board. For the rest of your large equipment, wall mounts will work just as well as always. The biggest benefit of all the room you have to work with is that you can arrange them in an aesthetically pleasing, or displeasing depending on your preference, fashion.

The bondage equipment is where things start to get expensive, time consuming, or both. You’ll probably want the classic furniture, of course, as the St. Anthony’s cross, bondage bench, wooden horse, and ceiling/floor fixtures are well served with the surplus of room you’ll have. The downside is that now you’re left with a lot of room to fill. Since you have the extra room you might want to consider getting a set of stocks and fastening them securely to the floor. Stocks make for an excellent multi-purpose tool allowing for easy access for sexual activity, S&M play, and even branding. If possible, a convertible set of stocks – that is, a set of stocks that converts to sitting stocks – is an even better piece of equipment. They allow for more secure holding which can allow for better branding and easier access if you switch to sitting stocks. A properly fastened bondage chair is also a must have and fits easily into any corner or against the wall. The exact type of chair preferred will differ from person to person but it’s usually a good idea to get one that’s adjustable such as a spider chair.

Of course, the bondage equipment is where most of your money will go to. This is where having good tools and skill with them can save you a lot of cash. You can find simple instructions online for the majority of bondage furniture, if you want to make it yourself, that can tell you exactly how to make it. It will take some effort, but there is something to be said for having made it yourself. Beyond that, it’s all a matter of setting up the ambiance you’d prefer. There are two that are considered the most common for a full dungeon. The clinical look is a well lit, bright white, sterile appearing room. This is the more expensive, since it’s fairly standard for clinical dungeons to use stainless steel furniture, but the effect is nonetheless impressive. The second is the classic dungeon look. This works best in basements with stone or concrete walls. Low lighting, dark wooden furniture, and black wall mounts/pegboards are the main keys to this look. Overall, this is considered the ultimate type of play room. It takes a lot of work and a good chunk of money to make it but the effect of the room will speak for itself. If you have a basement you’re not using, and you’re willing to spend the time to make it right, this room will have an enormous impact – pun most definitely intended.

That’s all of the tips you really need to know. No matter what size room you intend to convert, these will help you get a good idea for how exactly you want to proceed. You just need to keep in mind that any time you’re shopping for equipment you should always check the store and the product. Keep that in mind and you’ll have a proper play room you can be proud of for years to come.
