Basements with Flair

Looking for space to put an exercise room, entertainment center, or playroom? Go underground! if your home has an unfinished basement, remodeling might be a great way to transform this commonly under-used space.

When considering a basement remodel, start by making a floor plan. Be sure to mark locations of your furnace, washer and dryer and any other large appliance's. Take notes on:

  • Access to basement from upstairs and outside
  • location of existing plumbing if you want an additional bathroom
  • Location of vertical support columns
  • Location of windows and doors
  • Floor/Ceiling/Wall materials

Given their constant contact with earth, basements are vulnerable to dampness, which makes basement remodeling a bit more complex than first meets the eye. We'll help you make the appropriate measures to ensure a room free of moisture.

Most basements have low ceilings and few windows. But this doesn't have to limit you. There are many creative ways to make your basement light and airy. Talk to us about a variety of wall and ceiling lighting options available. We'll make sure to provide appropriate electrical lines and outlets.

Here are some tricks-of-the-trade for making your underground space first class.

  • Stay away from dark wood paneling and instead consider drywall painted a light tone to make the room brighter. Semi-gloss paint will gently reflect more light into the room.
  • Open up the visual space. Double door take away the typical cubic look. Or, how about rounded archways or pass-through area from one room to another.
  • Check to see if existing windows can be enlarged. Or consider installing a mini garden window
  • Built-in bookcases and entertainment units add richness and depth to a room. Light them with interior lights or from the top cast light downwards.
  • Disguise vertical support beams and horizontal ceiling pipes or floor joist by boxing them in. Or, you might decide to actually use pipes and beams as interesting accents by painting them with bold colors or subtle earth tones.
An unfinished basement is much like a diamond in the rough unexplored splendor awaiting your discovery.
