While many Canadian basements are left unfinished, they can be turned into comfortable, dry, finished spaces that enhance your home. To make sure that you will enjoy the final project and have fewer bumps on the road to getting there, you should consider a Baeumler Approved contractor to complete your basement renovations .
Why Choose a Professional?
Basement renovations can be complicated and time-consuming projects. Most basement finishes take more than a week to complete and have several different challenges. Many homeowners will prefer to hire a basement renovation company instead of attempting the project by themselves.
In order to complete your basement renovation, you may need to move or add plumbing to service a bathroom, kitchen, bar, or other plumbing fixture. The same goes for the electrical system. You may need to take steps to control moisture and make the space warmer and more comfortable, including adding insulation. Flooring, walls, and ceilings may all need to be added or altered. You can really use a professional’s guidance when making safety feature decisions for your basement. Will it need an egress window?
Basement renovations are not just about practicalities. The space should also end up being something you truly enjoy spending time in. For many homes, that means focusing on getting light in the space and maximizing the effect of that light is paramount. A finished basement often benefits from light-coloured walls, well-placed light fixtures, and even additional windows to make the whole space feel brighter and bigger.
Potential Uses for Your Finished Basement
Having a plan is always an important first step in any renovation project. Before they reach out to their contractor, many homeowners want to have a rough idea of what they’d like to do with their finished basement space. Here are a few ideas to get you thinking:
- Home office space
- Children’s playroom
- Extra bedrooms
- In-law suite
- Rental suite
- Bar and relaxation area
- Home theatre
- Artists workshop
What if you’re not sure about the best use for your space? Your local basement contractors should be able to help you strategize how to use your space. They should be able to tell you what kind of features can be installed in your basement. Before they begin work on your home, they should show you a mock-up of what your basement will look like when they have finished.
