How to Remodel a Basement for a Growing Family

Space in a family’s home is always a valuable thing. Often the basement floor is an untapped resource for much needed areas. An unused basement can be transformed into a room for work or play. According to this article a basement remodel can be the easiest way for a growing family to increase the living space in their home.


The first question a homeowner should ask him/herself would be, “What am I going to use this space for?” The basement’s function will help dictate the details of the remodel and the look of the space. If the area will be used a place of relaxation, quiet tones and soft touches might be used, if it will become a kid’s play area than bold bright colors might be appropriate. An office might dictate more conservative planning. Also consider using part of your basement to create an extra bathroom. This can be difficult in some basements but homes with a septic system should work well.


Another factor to consider in concern to remodeling your basement is lighting. Many people are concerned that a basement is too dark and dank to be revamped into a fun space—this is not the case! An easy way to maximize light is to focus on the color schemes you are using. Neutral and pale colors can help brighten a space, so can pot lights because they have a wide distribution of light and are recessed into the ceiling. Track lighting can also be helpful when remodeling your basement space.


When deciding on your remodeled basement also think about if you would like to keep some space unfinished. As the article explains, sometimes it can be useful to keep part of your basement unfinished for storage and practical purposes.


Overall a basement remodel can improve your home and give it added value. If you are interested in a basement remodel for your growing family contact TLC Garage Works today!
