Trends in Basement Renovations

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Flooring Selection - Depending on the function of your basement, the flooring you choose will vary widely, though it will ultimately need to withstand some degree of moisture. A good option to combat this is vinyl flooring, and adding in-floor heating can help in colder portions of the year. But work within the boundaries of what you are trying to accomplish in your room, and always be sure to match form with function.

 

Lighting - Basements can feel cavernous, even after the most meticulously planned renovations. Be sure that your lighting arrangement works for what you want out of your basement: a home theatre set-up might demand minimal lighting or LED floor strips, while an open lounge area would benefit from the installation of pot lights to create a warmer, more social feel.

 

Creative Storage - Many basements hold mementos from years past, but a renovation doesn’t necessarily mean they need to find a new home. Get creative with your storage selections: linen cabinetry is inexpensive, stackable, and presentable, while built in cabinetry can provide an obviously impressive feel and increased storage capacity for your basement.

 

Adding Washrooms - Adding a 3-piece bathroom might not make sense in most basement renovations, but the convenience and value of adding a 2-piece washroom is still significant and can make your finished basement into a superior venue for entertaining. Reno Select always ensures that your contractor is highly knowledgeable about any applicable codes and will ensure your job is executed with precision.

 

 

Basement renovations are increasingly popular, as the 3rd most popular renovation project in Canada last year. There are endless options available to any budget and Reno Select has a wealth of experience connecting expert contractors with homeowners looking to give their basements a lift. Whether you are creating a mortgage-helping rental suite, a lounge for entertaining, a fitness room, a wine cellar, or just adding warmth to a previously unfinished space, refinishing your basement will add significant value and comfort to any home. These are some trends we have been seeing in our most recent projects:
