You've got a basement, and that's great! But it could still be better. It might have ugly carpeting or outdated lighting. Maybe it's cold and damp, or it doesn't even have any insulation at all. If you're like me, you spent years living with a dank basement that seems to get more depressing every year. Well now is the time to take back control of your space. It doesn't matter if you want an entertainment center, an office, extra storage or just a cool place to hang out with friends—there are lots of ways you can turn your boring basement into something amazing.
Here are some tips for building the best basement:
The first step to building the best basement is to make a plan. First, figure out what you want to do with your basement. Do you want it to be a recreation room? A playroom for kids? An office space? Once you know what kind of space you're looking for, create a list of everything that will go into making this room perfect from flooring to furniture.
Don't forget about costs either! Make sure that any costs associated with permits or inspections are included in your budget so that nothing comes as an unexpected surprise during construction and don't forget about all those little extras like lamps and rugs either!
You will want to make sure you choose the right contractor for your project. You can do this by asking for references from friends and family, as well as checking their license and insurance.
Decide whether you want your basement to be open or closed. If it's an unfinished space, think about how you can use it and what will make the most sense for your family's needs. If it's already a finished room in the home, think about how it can be used as a multipurpose space that works well with other areas of the house (for example, by making a playroom or gym).
A good-looking basement is well worth the effort! If you are thinking about adding living space to your home, a basement is a great way to do so. You'll be able to expand without having to buy another house or move out of province.
