As your family grows, you may find yourself in need of a bit more livable space. If you have an unfinished basement, consider transforming it into a guest bedroom, home office, gym, den, or multi-purpose space.
Add Heating And Cooling
If your current HVAC system doesn’t extend to the basement, inquire about the costs of adding ducts and vents in the basement. However, it may be more cost-effective to utilize a space heater, electric fireplace, or mini-split air conditioner.
Basements are typically low on natural light with only a central light. Begin by assessing whether you can add a window or two. Even if it’s only a small and high window the natural light can make a world of difference. It doesn’t have to be a traditional window, maybe even a row of translucent or semi-translucent glass tiles near the ceiling. Also, add bright ceiling lights to brighten things up. Since you’ll be doing electrical, be sure to add additional outlets to each wall.
Insulate And Cover The Walls
Insulating and covering the walls will help to keep the basement warm, but it will also make it feel more inviting. If you are low on natural light, avoid dark colors. However, white is far from your only option. Consider any bright or light colors or wall coverings. Maybe even a light colored wood panel.
Add Epoxy Flooring
There are a variety of reasons to choose epoxy flooring for your basement, including that it’s inexpensive, easy to clean, and seals the floors to ensure no radon gas passes through. Just like all other types of flooring, you have countless options to choose from. From a clear and high-gloss sealant to flake floors, solid colors, or luxurious metallic marble finishes. Whatever your design aesthetic, we have a floor for you!
