Reasons to Undertake a Basement Remodelling Project Some of the main reasons why you may decide to undertake a basement renovation are: • Purpose Built: A basement can be a large area; whether you have visions of a giant entertainment room, additional bedrooms, a home gym or even a new kitchen, this space can be adapted to create a stunning addition to your home. • Less Hassle than Moving or Extension: There will be much less stress and disruption when you undertake a basement renovation. In addition you will not incur the costs and commission charges involved with a real estate change; these can be as much or more than the cost of your basement renovation! • Staged Build: As the room is below the house and not currently used for anything else; you will not really notice if it is out of commission. The mess can be contained and the project can be completed in stages to ensure it remains within your budget. • Additional Space: Finally, perhaps the most obvious reason for choosing to undertake a basement renovation is that you are looking to generate extra space in your home. This can often be a need to home elderly relatives or a way of providing individual bedrooms for growing children.
Basement Renovation – Should You Use a Professional? • Hiring a Professional: Firms like AGM Basement Renovations offer free estimates and will even provide you with a consultation for no charge. This can be useful to explore the options regarding the basement renovation. You may find that they have some ideas you had not thought of! • Time Cost: A professional basement renovation firm costs money. However, every minute of your time also costs money. It is important to consider how much time it will take you to complete a basement renovation project. • Tools: A basement renovation is a fairly large project; unlike many of the jobs round the home you may find that you need additional tools. The options will be to purchase these tools or to hire them. • The Finish: If you are not a professional then you may struggle to achieve the same standard of finish as a professional basement renovation firm. Hiring individuals for specific jobs can end up costing you more than using a professional for the whole job.
Is the Basement Renovation the Right project for you? • Moving Home • Whatever the reason, once you realize your house is no longer big enough you will start to look at its value and what else you can afford to buy. • Extending Your Home • In general an extension will be more hassle and more costly than simply converting your basement. It is also likely to provide no more benefit than the basement renovation. • Looking For extra Space – The Loft • If you are looking for extra space you may consider taking your house upwards and building rooms in the loft. Whilst this is a perfectly acceptable idea; you may find that you have limited room in the loft; to obtain more you will need to add dormers and deal with planning issues.
Important Facts to Consider if Completing a Basement Renovation • Leaks • Before you start anything you must take a close look at your basement. Check all the walls and the floor for any signs of damp or water ingress. • Planning • You do not generally need planning permission for a basement renovation. However, it is important to confirm this before you start. Even if planning permission is not required you may be required to obtain permits for any electrical or plumbing work you are undertaking. • Securing the internal walls • To complete your basement renovation to a high standard you will need to add stud walls to the internal walls. • Space • It is worth considering the plumbing and other features which need to go behind the internal walls. They will need to be built far enough out to allow space for any of these items. • Lighting • When completing a basement renovation you should consider adding recessed lights to avoid taking away any of the headroom. These can also add a nice effect to any room!
Ideas for Your Basement Renovation • Kitchen • If your current kitchen is on the small side and you love to cook then this is a good opportunity to lower the kitchen and refit it in your basement. • Games Room • If the space is a luxury and not for a specific purpose then the obvious answer is to create a games area. • Self-contained Apartment • Another option for your basement renovation is to convert it into a self-contained apartment. This is excellent if you have an elderly relative that needs to be looked after but wants to maintain their independence. • Bedroom • Another option is to convert the basement into a new master bedroom. This can be a luxury affair which will leave your old bedroom available for the children.
Basement Sports Bar • Walls • You should keep the walls simple and neat. Use deep colors such as hunter green rather than neutral ones since they can easily blend with the natural wood present in many basements. • Floors • The floor for your home sports bar should be sturdy and easy to clean. You can use tiles or hardwood if you desire a conventional look. • Furnishings • This is the most important part of the renovation, the furniture is what distinguishes your old basement as a sports bar. • Wow your guests • A popular decorative element in bars that you should also consider essential is the stained glass pendant that hangs above the bar top. In addition to its decorative purposes it also supplies light to the bar.
