One of the easiest ways to create more space in a
home is by better utilizing the space you already
have. Most basements are dark areas where they
act as a storage area and not used in everyday
living. Remodeling is a cost-effective approach
to expand your home's living room greatly. You
can have a guest room, entertainment or
recreation room, play space, or a home office.
Here are five considerations when remodeling your
basement in Salt Lake County.

1. Decide How to Use Your Space
The absence of light in basements helps set up a
home theater or movie room because it is dark.
The isolation from the rest of the home creates a
great place for noisy activities, such as
children playing or musical instrument
practicing. Adding a second kitchen during a
remodel, even if a small one, is convenient if
there is living space because there is access to
water and food.

2. Get Help with Design
With spending the time and money on remodeling
your home in Salt Lake County, you want to create
the best possible design that looks good and is
functional. Hiring a professional contractor or
designer can help you to get the most out of this
project. Careful planning in the beginning stages
can help you create an attractive, comfortable,
and functional area.

3. Maximize Natural Light
For many reasons, you'll probably want to add
more light to your basement when remodeling in
Salt Lake County. You may be able to add new
windows or enlarge existing ones. If this is not
possible, another option is to dig wells. Window
wells can increase the probability of water
problems.

4. Brighten by adding artificial light
Basements typically feel like a cave because they
are dark and low in the ground. To offset this
feeling of being in a dark cave, add indirect
lighting when remodeling to reflect from the
ceiling. This may open up space and make rooms
appear higher than they are. A combination of the
up-lighting and traditional recessed lighting
will give you the flexibility you need to create
various lighting moods.

5. Select the best flooring
Using flooring that doesn't absorb moisture is
best since basements can be easily flooded. For
floors, rugs are great because they can be
removed, dried, and cleaned if a flood ever
occurred. With considering these design
features, you are on your way to remodeling your
basement in Salt Lake County. Changing up the
space allows you to better utilize your home and
the activities you enjoy.
