Create More Living Space in your Home: Turning your Basement into a Bedroom

If you are doing basement remodeling, consider turning your space into an additional bedroom. This project may be time-consuming, but it will also leave you with a lot of extra living space.  These instructions should help you with this process.

The tools and materials you will need are:

  • Lumber
  • Drywall
  • Paint
  • Saw
  • Hammer
  • Paintbrush
  • Flooring
  • Drop ceiling
  • Lighting
  • Screwdriver

The first step is to build the walls. You will need to start out by framing each of the walls, using 2×4 boards to create each frame.  Attach the lumber together with a hammer and nail or a nail gun. Once you have the frames assembled you will attach drywall to the frames. After you have the drywall up, paint the walls any color you like.

The next step is to focus on a ceiling. If you had an unfinished basement before your remodeling, you may not have a ceiling in place. You can use a drop ceiling to cover the exposed pipes in your new bedroom. First install the tracks for the ceiling and then simply drop each tile into place.

After you have the wall and ceiling completed flooring should be the next step. There are many different options for the flooring of your basement bedroom. Tile and vinyl are the most popular for this type of room because they are the easiest to deal with in the likelihood of moisture on the floor at some point. Laminate or carpets are also used in these types of rooms. Carpet squares are frequently used in basement bedrooms because they are easy to install and easy to move in case of damage.

Now that you have your walls, ceiling and flooring you are all ready to furnish your new living space.  Choose whatever furniture you like for your new bedroom and enjoy the extra space you have created in your home! For more information on transforming your living spaces contact us!
