Almost every home has a basement. Unfortunately, many are unfinished, or have been renovated previously but not been done properly; it is common to see poorly insulated basements with illegal electrical and plumbing work, along with many other deficiencies. Renovating your basement with the same attention to details as the rest of your home will add vital functional living space and increase much needed storage and utility areas.
The most common attraction to renovating a basement is adding an additional bathroom. Space is abundant, so large bathrooms can be added with elements perhaps not appropriate in the other bathrooms of the house. Whether it’s a large tub, sauna, or walk in shower, it can be a treat and definitely add value to the home.
There are many other improvements to consider as well including adding proper sub-flooring, upgrading insulation, lighting, built-in cabinetry, laundry rooms, and of course, the open concept.
