I read a magazine article a few years ago about
hundreds of mummies stacked in the Cairo museum's basement.
The museum said they didn't have room in the museum for them.
Zahi Hawass said that they were trying to fix the problem.
What is being done? I haven't found any new articles on the subject.

They are constructing quite a few new museums around Egypt and moving certain artefact to the new museums. Whether or not this is what's been done with the mummies, I'm not sure, but it's certainly a possibility.

That's probably correct, DoS.
Not only mummies, but many different artifacts are stored in the basement, and never seen by the public, just because the museum is so very crowded. There are wonderful pieces, that any museum in the world would be happy to have that I've seen stored in the gardens!
With the new Egyptian museum out in Giza, much of that which is stored will be put on display. (another reason to take a trip soon!)

I have a studio in the basement.
It is in the center of the south side of the house, under my bedroom.
Ive made some inquiries to people and checked some books out of the library, but no one really knows if I should / could set the room as bedroom above. I did see in a book that a room in the basement is concidered the same as the room above, and another book said it didnt matter because it was beneath the upper level.
I like the first one better, but Id like some feed back from others about this before I tear down my studio and redecorate it this winter.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
