Remodelling Your Basement
Your basement is one of the most flexible areas in the whole house. It’s ubiquitous in providing the foundation for your Greater Vancouver home, but can also be used for storage, hosting, as a bedroom/bathroom, gym; the list could go on and on. There is no set criterion for what the basement is used as or for, like say the kitchen, meaning whatever you desire can be molded through the development of your basement.
If your basement is not currently developed, why not utilize it to its full potential? Making the mistake of leaving your basement a barren wasteland that collects dust and old Christmas memorabilia is an unfortunate use of space and a plays a part in providing an underwhelming valuation of your home. Even if you currently sport a developed basement in your home, basement renovations today can make more out of your space than you ever thought probable.
The addition of a game room, theatre room or an exercise room is not out of the question if you have the space. Even if you just want a little extra capacity and increased traffic to your lower level, basement renovations can make that happen. Consider remodelling or renovating your lower level to bring it out of the dark ages and to realize the true value of a remastered basement.
Upgrading your basement can lead to energy savings
Aside from the many ways you can turn your dusty old basement into an awesome entertainment area, it can also be a money saver and money maker, something you may have not even considered. A great deal of people just assume that when they turn on the heat or air conditioning, the entire house will heat up or cool down – including the basement. Truth be told, your basement has a climate of its own that’s regulated by the temperature of the ground surrounding it. That old basement you are currently housing may be the perfect avenue for air to escape and the reason why all those heating bills are funky. The bills may not be an issue, but spending time in a room where a coat or blanket is constantly required is no fun. During a basement renovation, it is a simple project to get the basement re-insulated with proper foam and drywall. This will not only make the temperature of your lower floor more comfortable, but will also play a part in keeping your upper floors at a more constant temperature. You may really feel like splurging during your Reno, so why not make your basement the new warmest room in your Greater Vancouver home? With thermal tiles and an upgraded heating system that is not out of the possibilities.
