Somehow in the last decade we have lost the will to utilize our basements to their full dark, cold and mostly underground potential. With the massive new home builds going up around town lately it is now more important then ever to reclaim that space and give yourself and your family some room to spread out as well as adding some value to your home. We have done our fair share of basement renovations and would like to share our top two spaces that you can create as well as some ideas to get you started!
Wine Cellar – What other space could be so perfect! Never got around to putting in flooring? That’s ok! Let your concrete add to the ambiance, instead look at adding some nice dark cabinetry to house all of those BC Vineyard favourites, a great mood setting light and a statement tasting table.
Media Room – Why not create a space to get cozy with the family and watch a movie or enjoy a game with the guys. Media rooms are always dark spaces – closed in a cozy is the key, so add a nice dark colour to your walls and install a high pile carpet (Mohawk’s Silk Carpet line is fantastic for this).
There are endless possibilities to create spaces in the basement that will enhance your life and they don’t all need to be bank breaking adventures. Take a walk around your basement and see the potential, and if you need help give us a call!
