A basement remodel can not only enhance your living space but can add value to your home. You can increase the usable space by adding a play room, and extra bedroom or a space for a home office. But, before you spend all that money, spend a little to protect your investment. Waterproofing and making sure that your foundation is structurally sound are essential before beginning any basement remodel project.
Maybe you already have an existing finished basement and are looking to spruce that up with a basement remodel. If your basement is already finished, but just needs a little updating, you’ve got half the battle over already. Simply adding a new color and/or type of flooring can really freshen up this space. Also, a new coat of paint or even choosing a different color for the walls can help dress things up as well.
If you are starting with an unfinished basement, then your basement remodel will take just a little more effort. An easy way to finish your basement floor, is to choose the simple route of staining that drab grey floor with some other color. This can really save money on things like having to install a subfloor for some flooring materials. Not only does it save time and money, it looks great too.
You will want to keep your walls bright in your basement remodel. Basements can quickly take on a cave-like appearance without proper design. It’s important to choose a wall color that keeps the space as light as possible so that you don’t feel like you’ve went back a few thousand years and are living like a cave man.
In conclusion, a basement remodel is a great way to up the value of your home and increase your overall usable square footage. Just keep in mind that the space needs to be properly waterproofed and your foundation structurally sound before you begin the work.
