If you are unsure about what may be involved in a basement renovation, we have prepared a few helpful tips and things to consider when deciding what you want to include in your finished basement.
- Increase overhead space by installing recessed light fixtures that won’t hang down from the ceiling.
- Basements are often the coolest areas of your home throughout the year. By installing a fireplace downstairs you can make sure your basement remains comfortable year round.
- Adding or expanding a bathroom in the basement is a great way to increase the value of your home.
- For more privacy and comfort in a basement bedroom, you might consider soundproofing the ceiling in your newly finished basement.
Consider the size of furniture, appliances or equipment you would like to keep in your basement. Will the existing entry ways allow these items to be brought downstairs, or should you consider expanding any doorways or stairwells?
