Denver Basement Remodeling

Coming up with a basement remodel must be done systematically. Much like bathrooms and kitchens, a complete remodeling of a home basement can be costly and time-consuming. A lot of houses across Denver and the Front Range do not have finished basements, and converting inadequately used spaces into a livable one, can be quite an undertaking. However, we’re confident our experts at Front Range Finish Basements can offer you the best innovative and basement remodeling services around Colorado!

Deciding the end result of your basement is the first step towards completing your basement renovation. For a successful remodeling project, you must have a clear direction in mind; it’s a key factor. Homeowners often do not know what to do with their downstairs space, which is a major common mistake. They must have a rough idea of what they really want to make out of their basement before doing something about it. If you are uncertain, search online for photo galleries to gather ideas of what others have come up with. This can ignite your creativity and helps you make a decision about improving your basement. Moreover, setting realistic goals for the basement space is a highly important factor. These realistic goals will fall into your budget and preferences, and knowledge on the amount of basement space you need to work with. To begin, let’s discuss some of the more important things to consider before embarking on a basement remodel project.

3 Important Aspects of Basement Remodeling

You have to understand that basement are below ground, and a little more work is needed to convert them into inhabitable spaces. When you understand this, your basement can then accommodate any activity such as acting as a rental, music or dance studio, a play area or even a movie theater. Basement remodeling done right can give you extra space to pursue your hobbies or recreation such as aerobics, exercises, crafting, or dance. It could even offer an intimate and very refreshing space for mental and physical growth.

With the right basement remodel, you are adding a “new room” to the already existing rooms in your house. Before moving ahead with your basement remodeling plans, there are a few essential points that you must bear in mind and they are:

1. Humidity Control

2. Ventilation

3. Lighting

First, the basements may suffer from occasional dampness and flooding. Your remodeling plans must make way for appropriate measures to take care of this problem. Install the necessary equipment such as dehumidifiers in your basement and get it waterproofed.

Next, the air circulation and ventilation should be carefully attended to. Basements are closed spaces. Therefore, to ensure their effective usage, you must properly install enough air circulation units.

Finally, if possible get your basement remodeling done in such a way that natural light also reaches into it. Besides the natural light, make good use of artificial lights so that every corner of the basement is well lit. Besides light and ventilation, insulation is another major concern that needs to be handled in any basement remodeling project. Creating a dry basement would make the space more comfortable and hence conducive to living, storage or working.

To make your basement more appealing and inviting, especially for potential resale value, you want to make sure it doesn’t feel like a basement. You want to make sure it’s bright, feels spacious and is warm and homey. Make every attempt to address any reasons that prevent people from spending time in their basements. To do this effectively take the following steps:

1. If your basement has room dividers, you may want to consider tearing out those walls and creating a large, open concept space. This will counter the low ceilings that you will probably have and make the room feel larger.

2. Accentuate the windows with decorative window treatments. If you use blinds, keep them in light colors to allow in as much light as possible.

3. Make sure there is enough soft lighting throughout the room. Soft spotlights are great, but strategically placed floor lamps and even candles make the room feel warm and inviting.

4. Choose lighter colors for the floor and walls. Unless you are going with a specific theme, like a movie room, which requires more darkness, bright, clean walls and floors open the room up even more and make it feel less like a dungeon.

5. Choose elements of warmth to accent the room, like area rugs, blankets for the sofas and throw pillows. Also, add in personal touches like plants and family photos to make it accommodating.

6. If you use a portion of your basement as a laundry area, make it very functional. Add in brighter lights and sufficient shelving or cupboards. Also, consider adding in at least a sink to make it more useful.

A number of price considerations vary for a basement remodel. Among these is the cost of labor, physical workforce and time it takes to finish the project. Basic supplies used on the project also contribute to the overall project; they cover everything from paint, nails, and fixtures. Be sure to consider these various cost factors of the project before you begin.

In addition, buy as much supplies as you deem necessary for the project up front. This serves a number of purposes. First and foremost, you can carry on the work anytime on any given day without needing to take a break to purchase more materials. Secondly, it prevents you from making modifications to your basement remodeling plans. Even though some changes are necessary along the way if you alter the half-finished project no doubt you will encounter unwanted expenses and even additional complications, which could both be avoided.
