Basement renovations are a great way to boost a home’s value and expand livable space. Plus, with so much usable space you have a lot of options. You can use your basement to relax, spend time as a family, a home office, playroom, or exercise. It all starts with a basement renovation design plan that will meet your family’s needs.
Flite Contracting in Edmonton is a trusted home renovation contractor that commits to quality and customer satisfaction with every project. They have three features for homeowners to consider when renovating their basement:
Take time to consider flooring
While there are several options for flooring when it comes to basement renovations, not every kind works in the space. You must take care when choosing flooring due to moisture levels that can damage certain flooring products. It’s also a good idea to choose the flooring that will function best for the intended use of the space. For example, if the plan is to use the space as a toy room, a more robust flooring could last longer. Vinyl planking could be a good option in this case. If you’re not sure what will work best, speak with your trusted contractor for advice. Learn more about developing a basement.
Boost functionality and comfort with good lighting
A common reason for people underutilizing their basement is due to lack of light. Spending time in a dark space doesn’t appeal to everyone, so it’s a popular undertaking in a basement renovation. First, check whether natural light is an option by increasing the number or size of windows. If natural light isn’t an option, the next best thing is to ensure the basement has adequate ambient lighting, like spotlights throughout the entire ceiling. Then you can add coziness with task and accent lighting, like warm table lamp and wall sconce lighting.
Custom millwork takes things to the next level
If looking to really make a statement and have your basement stand out, custom millwork is the way to do this. By adding personalized touches to things like trim or moulding, you could set the tone for the space. If looking for a more stylish space to relax in or entertain, installing wall or ceiling panelling or even crown moulding can take your basement renovation to the next level. Custom millwork will add aesthetics and value to the space. Quality work can go a long way when it comes to resale value or when showing the house to potential buyers in the future.
