Basements are far too often left as a dark, forgotten storage area beneath the house. However, with a little attention, a beautiful remodeled basement becomes an extension of your home. Modern basements have come a long way from the 1970s “rec room”. Your basement can become a beautiful hobby room, a home theatre, a home office, a guest room, a full bath, an exercise room, an additional living space, or a wet bar. When we craft your lower level dream space, there are a few things we take into consideration to make this part of your home perfect.
An Extension of Your Home
Your basement is essentially one third of your home. This is why we strive to put the extra care into making your basement space a comfortable extension of your home. A basement is no longer dark and dingy with dropped ceilings and fluorescent lighting. Adequate recessed lighting is now incorporated, making the home feel like an extension of your home rather than a dreary basement. Do you ever work from home? We can create a basement office that feels like a productive, professional workspace that is a fixture of the home. Do you love to entertain guests? We can install a wet bar with under cabinet lighting that will make you look like a professional bartender. Our focus is on creating the most desirable and comfortable space for you.
Many homeowners who decide to take on a basement remodel as a fun DIY project aren’t aware of just what is needed to keep the basement safe, clean, and comfortable. Our professional remodelers know how to keep your basement in compliance with your local building codes, which oftentimes means making sure there are egress windows, fire stops, and smoke and carbon monoxide detection systems. We also determine the source of leaks or excess moisture and work to fix it for you. A dry basement is essential for preserving the life of your furniture, rugs, window treatments, and other decor. We also insulate your basement so that it maintains a comfortable temperature during every season. Finally, if you prefer, we can check for air leaks and gaps and seal them to ensure less drafts, which results in higher energy-efficiency. All of this combined makes the basement an inviting space in which to spend time with your friends and family!
