If there is any place where a wish list comes in handy, this is it. Creating a moisture-free, safe environment is always the starting point. From there, an extra bedroom… a workout area… the kids playroom… it’s your call.
Behind Door #1
Your basement may not be as inviting as you would want… or it could be a source of pesky drafts or noise. Consider providing separate entrances to the various areas of your basement… storage, heating, playroom.
Cleaning Up the Scary Place
Sometimes it’s not about creating an oasis in your basement – sometimes it’s about making the most out of what you already have. That might mean cleaning up the electrical or fixing floors and walls so you have clean storage areas.
MAKE IT YOUR OWN
Basements come in many shapes and sizes and if you are lucky enough to have one, make it your own. The trick is to make sure accessibility and safety go hand-in-hand with functionality. What can your basement accommodate – a bedroom, a recreation room, a media room, a wine cellar, a gym, an office, a laundry room or the ultimate man cave?
