Remodeling an existing basement or an addition can be a very interesting and rewarding way to expand your indoor premises and address the growing needs of your family. This is one of the best ways to increase living space without emptying your pocket.
Basements are generally unused areas, which you can convert into a productive living area. If there is an unfinished basement in your home, it is a good idea to transform it into a useful area. Such as, you can transform your basement into a home gym, family room, home theatre room, add a wine room, bedroom, wet bar, indoor pool and in-law suite choices in design and layouts are literally endless.
Since basements are located below the ground level, a basement renovation project is far less likely to cause any disturbance or disruption to your everyday activities while the construction is underway. This is usually not the case when other renovations are being carried out.
Factors to Consider while Adding Basement Additions:
The first thing you need to make sure is that the basement is leak proof and the indoor area won’t become too humid. Excessive humidity, mold and seepage will not only damage your new addition but will cause considerable financial loss later on.
Another aspect to consider is the ambiance and presence of natural light in the basement. It is a common problem with basements that they tend to be very dark. If you want the space to be converted into a family room or even a bedroom/bathroom, it is very important to think about maximizing the natural light. You may put a knee wall around the windows already installed in the basement. Or else, you may add artificial lighting to prevent the indoor environment from becoming too dark and gloomy.
Moreover, you should carefully choose the products for basement remodeling. Such as, a wooden floor will not be too suitable for the slab foundation of the basement.
What if you don’t have an Existing Basement?
In case you don’t have an existing basement under your home, you can excavate and create one easily. This will involve excavating some or all the portion of the crawlspace or the area below the slab will have to be dug in to create a new area. A basement addition is a very cost-effective project but will offer amazing, long-term benefits for you and your family.
