How do you use your basement? For many people, this space serves as additional storage or utility for their homes. But it could be so much more! With the right renovation, your basement could become your new favorite room—or rooms. Depending on what we do with it. If you’re not quite sure what you want to do with this area yet, we have a few suggestions…
The Suite Spot
With a large enough space, we can transform your basement into its own standalone suite. Creating a floor plan that include a bedroom, bathroom, small living space, and even a kitchenette, gives you so much versatility! It could become an ideal area for guests, an in-law suite down the road, or a rental property to generate some income. Not to mention, it’ll increase the square footage of your property drastically (and your resale value along with it). The plumbing and electrical aspects needed to make this project fully functional may cost a little more upfront, but think of it as an investment in your home! In the end, the finished product will be well worth it.
Bonus Family Space
For households with children, it always seems like you’re running out of room! Why not turn your basement into useable space like an extra living area, game room, or even a media center? With this type of project, we really like to customize the renovations to suit your particular needs. Think about what brings you and your family together. Are you crafty people? Or movie buffs? Or the rest and relax type? Whatever you prefer, we can create a space that will allow all of you more room to run around. This function is great for entertaining, too! But, we may also want to incorporate a downstairs bathroom while we’re at it.
Laundry, Mud, & More!
Of course, there’s always the obvious choice for a basement. We could take the concept of traditional utility space and upgrade it! We’re talking about a designated laundry room complete with an additional sink, shelving, and other storage. A mudroom could be a better use of a walkout basement, so you have a place to store all of your dirty outerwear and even clean up. Basement renovations become more pet-friendly when we incorporate a dog/cat grooming station. Or, you might need a workshop space with tool storage and room to spread out instead. Whatever makes the most sense for your lifestyle, we can help you achieve!
Your basement doesn’t have a be a place limited to overflow functions. Allow us to turn it into something beautiful and efficient.
