You’ve seen those renovation TV shows where a family gets their unorganized basement turned into a new work, play, or relaxation space. Maybe you have wondered whether you could actually get something like that done for yourself. We are writing this today to tell you that you can make your Victoria BC basement renovation ideas a reality. Toolbox Renovations has some ideas of our own for how you can change your basement into something more liveable and eye-catching.
If your basement’s walls are unfinished, with framing or insulation visible, you have a few options getting that job completed. Your walls can play a big part in creating a different feeling for your room. You could get wood panelling to create a cozy feeling, or use different colours of paint depending on the mood you want to create. The same can go for your floors. If you have an old carpet down there now, taking it out and adding new floor tiles or panels can make all of the difference. Adding carpet onto a concrete floor can also make your basement so much more likeable to you and your family, both to look at and relax in.
Your basement could currently feel outdated, but a basement renovation can change that. If you have a brick fireplace that catches everyone’s attention for the wrong reasons, you can get the bricks removed or covered and put a wood or stone mantel in its place. An old staircase in your basement can be redone to match the rest of the space too, so the whole area will feel unified as you come downstairs.
Do you use your basement for storage? If you go through the items you find down there, you may find that you really do not need to use all of that space for storing your things. With the right shelving units, your basement can be transformed into a space that is both useful for storage and enjoyable to be in.
Hopefully this has given you new ideas for your basement renovation. If you are in Victoria BC, we at Toolbox Renovations would be happy to discuss the possibilities today.
