Finished Basements are a great area to create more space for entertaining, children’s playrooms, fitness rooms, bedrooms and small kitchens. Many times these spaces can be incorporated into existing portions of the basement, making them an economical choice to add needed space to your home. Looking for that special addition to your home? From wet bars and wine cellars to home theatres and places for children to run and play, we can help change this unused space to a valuable asset. There may also be opportunities to incorporate your new space into an outdoor area. Bring light into the finished basement through doors and windows that also invite you out to an outdoor kitchen, outdoor fireplace or gardening area. Finished basements are one of the top home renovations that can return future value for your investment.
About the photographs: The first shows a basement room that was finished to create a fitness room with exercise flooring, cardio equipment and weight equipment. With the addition of air conditioning, a ceiling fan and recessed can lighting, it became a much more pleasant and lively environment to exercise in.
The second photograph shows a basement that was finished with high end finishes and includes a downstairs kitchenette, bathroom and game room. Quality cabinetry and granite tops highlight the kitchen, while Italian porcelain tile with an authentic wood look creates a warm and rich flooring option that is the ideal choice for lower level living. With the kitchenette, bath and game room, you have all you need on one level for a fun night of gaming and entertainment.
This picture also highlights the possibilities for creating finishes that equal the upper level finishes. The coffered ceiling and tray ceiling were created with removable panels to access wiring and electrical services while also having an upscale appeal over acoustical ceilings. The main room was also insulated with Icynene spray foam insulation for a tightly sealed room that adds to energy efficiency.
