Don’t Be Afraid To Dream Big
The concept of developing your basement can sometimes feel daunting, especially if you’re feeling a little unsure of how to best make use of your space. If you’re feeling a tad overwhelmed, there’s no need to worry! The beauty of renovating your basement is that you have plenty of opportunities to get creative and design a space that truly meets your current needs and future wants for years to come. Whether you want a space that can accommodate your growing family, give you more room to practice your hobbies, or even just a cozy space that you can continue to customize, our team is here to help you bring your vision to life!
Where to Start
Still not sure where to start? No problem! As we mentioned above there’s plenty of options at hand. With that being said, the most important priority for any renovation should always be fixing any existing issues in the home. Your basement contains many important parts of your overall building envelope (what separates the outside from the inside), and if you have any known problems such as leaks, faulty piping or electrical wiring, etc, you’ll want to focus on getting those elements dealt with first. From there, you can look at making improvements like:
Whether you’re installing flooring for the first time on a concrete surface, or replacing outdated carpet on a previously finished space, redoing your flooring is a great way to breathe new life into the basement, while also increasing comfort and the overall insulation factor in your home. Bear in mind that, because basements tend to be damper, you’ll need to select appropriate options that can handle moisture, but rest assured that there are countless stylish selections to choose from!
Extra Bed or Bath
Adding extra livable space to your lower level can be a great way to increase everyone’s comfort in the home and ensure that the whole family has the room they need to be happy at home. It’s important to keep in mind that when we talk about adding a bed or bath, we’re not talking about turning your basement into a legal secondary suite (though this is certainly a viable option as well!), but simply adding extra rooms that your family can use as needed. Extra bedrooms and bathrooms can be a great fit for expanding families with teenagers that want extra privacy, or even those that have relatives that routinely visit in from out of town.
Dedicated Hobby or Workspace
Has your company decided to make work from home more of a priority? Why not use the basement as your very own office and take advantage of previously unused space to make working remotely more comfortable? Tired of travelling back and forth from the gym? Create your very own powerhouse workout station in the comfort of your own home. No matter what you’re hoping to use extra space for, we’re here to help you create the perfect fit!
