Tips for Finishing Your Basement

A finished basement can be a highly functional space for you and your family to enjoy. If your current basement is in the process of being remodeled, or if you’re considering a basement remodel in the future, you’ll want to consider all options to ensure the room looks and functions exactly how you want it to. We know this can be an overwhelming process with endless possibilities, which is why our custom home builders in Chicago have provided some helpful insight below.

Utility is Most Important

Functionality should be at the forefront of your basement, as you’ll want to get as much use out of this area as possible. Consider creating separate rooms for laundry, working out, storage, or even a home office. Be sure to build walls in areas that you want additional privacy and make sure that your plumbing is factored in from the beginning stages of your remodel.

Consider an Open Concept

Many basements have an open concept layout. If you want to go this route, be sure to plan out the main television area with another area to situate your furniture. Some basement remodels include the addition of a dining area, so consider whether your family will get use of a dining space downstairs. Always remember to factor in enough space to walk from one area to another to help your space feel even larger.

Factor In Your Home’s Aesthetic

It’s tempting to use old, mismatched furniture or outdated decorations to finish your basement remodel, but putting in the extra effort to make your space beautiful will pay off in the long run. Cutting corners on cheap finishes or leaving your space too plain can take away from the work that was just completed.
