3 Elements To Consider in a Basement Remodel

Well-lit and open basement space.

As many homeowners think about creative ways to expand the space in their homes, basement remodeling contractors have seen an increase in basement remodeling projects.

Most people use their basement for storage and don’t visit it too often. But if you look around, it could be turned into a weekend media room or even another family room. Regardless of your plan for how you want to use your basement, consider these three elements when remodeling.

Flexible Lighting Options

Lighting is probably the first thing you want to prioritize in a basement remodel. Basements tend to be dark and dull, so various lighting options will help bring the room to life.

Most basement remodeling services suggest bright white lights on the ceiling. You could even put a few lamps in the room’s dark corners. If you plan on using the basement for a media room, consider dimmable lighting so you can watch movies or play games with the perfect amount of light.

Storage Solutions

An important factor basement remodelers want you to consider is your storage plan. Most basements are used primarily for storage. So, if you want to live in the space more, you’ll need to figure out what to do with everything that’s accumulated over the years.

Floating shelves are popular since they don’t take up space on the floor. You can have plenty of storage space without making the room look smaller. Items like pegboards and baskets with lids are other storage options depending on the types of items you have.

Add Sufficient Insulation

The best basement remodeling contractors also suggest evaluating the insulation in your basement. Insulating the outside walls is essential, but the ceiling is often overlooked. Without ceiling insulation, the noise will be heard clearly in the room above.

You’ll appreciate sufficient ceiling insulation if your basement is turning into a space for watching television, playing musical instruments, or any other noisy activity.
