Updated: May 17, 2023

Renovating your basement is a great way to add additional square footage to your home. Not only can you create extra living space, but you have the option to turn it into something unique that fits your needs and lifestyle. Whether you're looking for a gym, media room, an office, or simply adding organized storage, renovating your basement will help make use of your space more effectively. By making use of the existing walls, you can create a comfortable and functional area for yourself and your family.

The key to a successful basement renovation is to think through what kind of activities you will be doing in the area and how best to design the space around them. Take into account your budget, the type of materials you will use and any special needs you may have.

Once you determine your budget, the materials will be what ties the look together. LVT (luxury vinyl tiles) is a great option for basement floors. There are many color options, finishes and sizes to choose from.

Creating a gym area has been in high demand. Adding dense 8mm rubber tiles or rolls have elevated the home gym. Homeowners are looking for a space to work out in and enjoy the functionality as well. Whether you are lifting weights or working on your yoga moves, the rubber floors help enhance the overall look of the environment. Think about adding mirrors to the wall so you can focus on good posture!

Media rooms continue to be very popular. Creating a cozy space where you can enjoy movies with your family or just simply a space where you can watch what you want. Planning the layout is very important in order to get the wires placed for sound systems and lighting.

You can never have enough storage. Purchasing shelving units or building custom shelving is a great way to keep your home organized and have things readily accessible. When working on the layout and design,

note what you plan to store there and the dimensions you will need for the shelves. Keep in mind, you will also need to pay attention to the weight capacity per shelf.

With careful planning and well-thought-out design decisions, your basement renovation can be a great addition to your home that provides more space for activities while adding value to your property. We can help you create a basement renovation of your dreams!
