6 Options for Basement Renos

A basement renovation can add something completely different to your home, though it can be difficult to choose what to do. Your basement could easily be used as a place for storage only, but why not change it up? Consider these 6 options to start.

Fantasy Space

Your dream space might be Hollywood-themed or related to fishing. Whatever the case for you, to get started you just need an idea of what you want to do and how much you can afford–a professional renovations contractor can make your vision a reality.

Exercise Room

You can make achieving your goal to stay more active easier by turning your basement into an exercise room. The first thing you should do is measure your doorway and the height of your ceiling to make sure the equipment will fit. Equipment that can be disassembled easily is best. A measurement of the height of your ceilings will also help you to make sure you’ll be able to use your equipment properly when you are standing or sitting on it in your new basement space.

Basement Suite

If you could use the extra funds that will come in from renting out your basement, you might be able to make this work. The most important part of the process is finding out what the regulations for multi-family dwellings are in your municipality.

Home Office

Maybe you already have an idea of what a home office looks like, but you don’t have to stick with the usual–you can design a space that you’ll actually enjoy.

Wine and Bar Cellars

Your loved ones will enjoy your basement as much as you do if you transform it into a cellar. Do as much or as little as you like to create the right atmosphere. When you have limited funds, you should start by deciding what you want completed the most and then get your contractor to help you determine what is possible.

Guest Room

It’s great to have an extra space for guests in your home. What is most important here again is to follow regulations in your municipality. This could include the need to have a window that is big enough to be used in the event of a fire so anyone could exit safely (egress). The window may also have to be located high enough above the floor, according to regulations.
