Thinking of Basement Remodelling? Here is How to
Proceed!
  • Start by evaluating the space. It is arguably the
    most important step to take, and many people
    overestimate the space they have and want so much
    crammed into a limited space. You should not make
    this mistake. Moreover, you need to check for
    other obstacles, such as excessive moisture, low
    ceilings, and ventilation concerns. Sometimes, it
    pays you in the end to have your basement
    waterproofed professionally to avoid wasting the
    investment you are going to make through
    remodelling. Therefore, it is important to know
    what you can have installed in your basement and
    how you can protect your investment.
  • Know how you are going to use your basement
    space. You should sit with your family members
    and determine how you are going to use your
    remodelled basement. You may be looking to have
    space designed for your teenage daughter or son
    and their friends. You may also be looking to
    have a guest bedroom in that space. In certain
    cases, you may also want to have a bathroom or
    kitchen included in the basement.

Thinking of Basement Remodelling? Here is How to
Proceed!
  • While deciding on what to have included in the
    basement, you should also pay attention to
    different legal requirements in your area. For
    instance, if you are interested in having a
    bedroom in the basement, you may be required to
    install an egress window as well that would come
    in handy in case of fire. Similarly, you need to
    ensure that the bathroom plumbing meets the legal
    requirements in your local area.
  • Know your budget. Along with thinking of other
    things, you should understand that you will be
    spending a lot of money on basement remodelling,
    usually depending on how much remodelling you
    really want. Therefore, it is a good idea to have
    a clear idea of your overall budget. A good idea
    is to create a list of what you want to include
    in the basement space and then compare it with
    how much money you can spend. The average cost of
    basement remodelling is somewhere around 28,000,
    but it all depends on the details you choose. For
    instance, the cost will go up significantly if
    you are planning to install a bathroom in the
    basement. Therefore, you should take your time
    and know how much money you have available to
    remodel your basement.

Learn Why It Makes Sense to Have a Kitchen Added
to Your Finished Basement
  • You can turn your basement into a space where you
    can do some cooking experiments without having to
    worry about anything. You can do things you may
    be afraid of doing in the main-level kitchen. You
    can try new recipes and be as creative as you
    like without others looking and judging your
    skills.
  • You can consider opting for a galley kitchen that
    you need to install along one wall. Not only does
    it help you cook whatever you want, it also
    provides you with a workspace to entertain. You
    can also take advantage of it as a basement
    apartment.
  • You can always add large appliances like
    refrigerators, washing machines, and dishwashers
    installed in your basement kitchen. The good
    thing is that you can use these appliances at
    whatever speed you deem useful without having to
    worry about disturbing others with its noise. You
    can run your washing machine at full speed to
    complete the task in a short time without making
    others deal with the loud noise.

Learn Why It Makes Sense to Have a Kitchen Added
to Your Finished Basement
  • You can save yourself from a lot of hassle by
    installing a basement kitchen because it saves
    you from running up and down stairs to get stuff
    needed to entertain your guests.
  • You can turn your basement into a basement
    apartment simply by adding a kitchen to the
    space. It will be much easier to acquire a
    roommate when you have a kitchen in your
    basement. It will also help you earn extra
    income.
  • You can build a basement kitchen quite easily,
    especially if you have a basement with plenty of
    headroom. Larger basements now provide quick
    access to utilities, such as water, electricity,
    sewer and gas lines. You will also find drains
    and plumbing close by, which makes adding a
    kitchen to the basement a desirable option. You
    usually do not need to spend a lot of money to
    setup a kitchen in the basement, especially when
    you are working with qualified kitchen
    remodelling experts.

Want to Add a Kitchen to Your Basement? Do Not
Overlook a Few Important Points!
  • Pay special attention to ventilation. Without
    ample ventilation, you just cannot use your
    basement kitchen effectively. A good way to have
    improved ventilation is to opt for an electric
    chimney. It works quite efficiently to remove
    cooking smells from your basement kitchen. You
    can also opt for a ventilator to make your
    basement kitchen feel fresh.
  • Do not overlook the importance of fire safety.
    You need to take steps to ensure that you can
    extinguish small fires immediately. It is also
    important to keep the exit from the basement far
    from the kitchen, so even small children can get
    out of the basement in case of an emergency. Do
    not forget to keep a fire extinguisher handy
    because it goes a long way in preventing small
    fires from becoming serious.
  • Select the right flooring option when having a
    kitchen added to your basement. You need to
    select a flooring option strong enough to support
    the weight of your refrigerators, washing
    machines, and dishwashers. The good thing about
    having these appliances in your basement kitchen
    is that you can use them at full speed without
    disturbing others. You may want to talk to a
    basement remodelling specialist to learn about
    the best flooring option for your basement
    kitchen.

Want to Add a Kitchen to Your Basement? Do Not
Overlook a Few Important Points!
  • Do not invest a lot in buying new furniture. You
    can always put the old furnishings to use in your
    basement kitchen. Old cabinets from your maintain
    floor kitchen can go into your basement kitchen
    to make the available space look good and
    functional. By going this way, you will be able
    to save some money and your environment will
    thank you as well.
  • Work with a pro when adding a kitchen sink. The
    good thing is that your basement is already close
    to the drains of your house, so adding a sink
    does not have to be a big hassle. It will also be
    easier to add the washing appliances. Still, it
    is a good idea to let an expert take care of
    these tasks to avoid any complications later. You
    need to do the same when installing the wires.
    You may be thinking that you can do it yourself
    since the mains are in the basement, but not
    doing it correctly would make your kitchen
    inefficient and even risk your safety at the same
    time. Let a professional do it for you!

Thinking of Finished Basement Ceiling Options?
Here are Two Good Options to Consider!
  • Drywall If you are more concerned about having a
    warm and professional look for your basement, you
    may never go wrong with drywall. Simply by making
    the right use of drywall ceilings, you can make
    your basement look as impressive as any other
    room in your home. The good thing is that it is
    possible to treat drywall with a variety of
    textures it is easy to apply these textures
    using a roller or spray applicator. While drywall
    is a great choice, it requires framing in
    ductwork that can pose some challenges. You may
    have to spend more money here because
    installation can be quite demanding since the
    work needs to be done overhead. The contractor
    will also have to install service panels to
    provide you with access to pipes and wiring,
    which can add to the overall cost.
  • Suspended Ceilings If you have good headroom
    available in your basement, you can certainly put
    your money on suspended ceilings. These ceilings
    feature a hanging grid with tiles placed into it
    to form the surface of the ceiling. The biggest
    benefit of opting for suspended ceilings is that
    they offer quick and unrestricted access to
    wiring, plumbing, and ducts. You will find it
    much easier to add insulation to the tiles it
    offers sound-muffling qualities as well. You can
    also choose from a variety of tiles, including
    vintage tin, faux-metal, plaster-look tiles, and
    faux wood tiles.

Some Great Ideas for People Looking for the Best
Flooring Option for Basement Remodelling
  • Bamboo Flooring Wood floors are quite popular,
    but if you are worried about damage caused by
    moisture, you may consider putting your money on
    bamboo flooring. High moisture levels can cause
    problems in most basements, and that is where
    bamboo will work great because it is highly
    water-resistant and looks good at the same time.
    It is likely to hold structure integrity better
    and longer than other wood floor options. It
    would not bow, buckle, or show gaps as well. You
    simply need to hire an installer who would glue
    it to your concrete subfloor.
  • Laminate Flooring In case you are interested in
    doing your basement flooring on your own, you may
    look no further than laminate flooring. It is
    even better to opt for melamine-infused laminate
    because it resists water and works great in
    basements where moisture levels may be a cause
    for concern. Melamine is actually a
    moisture-resistant additive that is used after
    mixing into the high-density fiberboard.
  • Engineered Wood It is usually made by adding the
    veneer over layers of other wood. Using
    engineered wood is yet another good way to cover
    your basement floor in an efficient way because
    it tends to maintain its structural integrity
    over time. Another good thing is that you can
    find it in a large range of styles and colors.

Some Great Ideas for People Looking for the Best
Flooring Option for Basement Remodelling
  • Carpet One of the relatively cheaper options is
    to go for carpeted floors. You simply need to buy
    a carpet of your choice and spread it over your
    concrete subfloor to create an inviting
    environment. The only serious concern here is
    related to mold and mildew that can form quickly
    in humid environments you have in your basement.
    You may also have to deal with allergies when
    using carpets on the floor. You can make things
    better by opting for a vapor barrier that needs
    to be installed underneath the carpet. It is also
    possible to find carpets that have antimicrobial
    properties.
  • Ceramic Tile If you are looking for a more
    stylish option, you may consider opting for
    ceramic tiles. It has become a popular flooring
    option because of the fact that it is virtually
    waterproof and does not pose any problem related
    to moisture in the basement. You can also find
    tiles in a variety of shapes, colors, styles, and
    sizes. Just pick something that you think will
    work great for your basement.
