Title: Low-Cost Basement Finishing Ideas

Low-Cost Basement Finishing Ideas
The idea of finishing a basement always brings
the big question How much will it cost us,
will we be able to afford it? It is true that a
total makeover of your basement could cost you
huge amounts of money, particularly if you think
of those luxurious looking ones, usually done by
experienced and, many times, expensive
contractors. However, there are a lot of
things you can do to lower your costs and yet
achieve a great-looking finished
basement. If you are really willing to do some
work, and if you take note of the following
basement finishing ideas, your basement finishing
will be ready sooner than you imagine, and meet
your budget! 1- Cheap Flooring Ideas. Stained
concrete is among the cheapest. And it looks
amazing. Could you even go a step further and
turn it into an incredible faux tile floor? What
about stencilled flooring? Only paint the floor
with a solid color, choose a beautiful stencil
design, and use a contrasting color for
it? Walking over bottle caps, why not? You could
create amazing colourful mosaics using beer
bottle caps. If your purpose is to use the
basement as a man cave, nothing better than
this! Want to give your floor a unique glowing
look? Consider lining it with pennies this is
ideal for small spaces, such as the basements
Do you like wood? Use pallets to for your
floor lining. The pallet tables usually have a
separation between them. In that case, use tables
from another pallet to fill the gap between one
and another. You can trim them and varnish them
or paint them on your favourite color. Remember
white color visually creates the impression of a
larger space. 2- Low-cost Wall Finishing
Ideas Wood pallets can be used to create cozy
walls. Simply dont overdo it if you used pallets
on the floors. Painted concrete blocks can make
great walls. You can paint them on different
colors of use several shades of one color and
give your concrete blocks wall an excellent and
creative look. Painting one wall with chalkboard
paint is a very good idea that will look
beautiful in a playroom, an art studio or on a
kitchen wall. Great for the kids to have fun, to
write down to-do lists, or a delicious recipe you
plan to cook. You still dont want or cant
spend on covering all your walls? Do yourself
some lovely curtains hanging down to the
floor! For an industrial and modern look, you
could use corrugated metal paneling on any of
your walls. As an extra, you will bring some
brightness to the basement. Like to look
yourself in the mirror? You could cover a whole
wall with a mirror! It will create a visual
effect of making the room look twice bigger as it
is! We have enlisted a few ideas, but creativity
has no limits. Maybe its time to let your
imagination flow and, who knows how unique
your basement may end up being? Basement
finishing can be a greatly enjoyable
experience, dont be afraid and start
now! Article Source http//www.dea5.net/low-cos
