Reclaim square footage by taking full advantage of your basement with a remodel
When you live in a home for many years, basements frequently become forgotten spaces for things no longer used. Hme renovation ideas for basements are everywhere, but have you been putting it off because you can’t decide what to have done?
Basements are excellent spaces for everything from an entertainment space (think huge TV, bar, fireplace) to a home gym or guest bedroom.
Good lighting will keep the basement from feeling cramped, and if you want to utilize it for a bedroom as well, a window or window well if below grade, will provide a safe escape route, and is required by codes.
Be sure to hire a reputable contractor, and check that the basement does not get damp during rainy seasons. If there is a water problem, a sump pump can be installed to take care of that.
