What You Need to Transform Your Basement on a Budget

Basements can be used as game rooms, living rooms, bedrooms, home offices, and for storage. If your current basement is unfinished or rundown, then you’re not fully utilizing all of your home’s livable square footage. Transform your basement on a budget so you can maximize all of your home’s living space.

Insulation & Walls
Sticking with the concrete blocks that your basement is structured from is not a smart move. You’ll need to remove any water damage, install insulation, and hang drywall for a closed and secure room. Otherwise, moisture will be present which will eventually lead to mold growth. If your basement is already finished, have the insulation assessed and look into a new paint job.

Let There Be Light
When you’re remodeling a basement, you’ll want to get rid of that “basement feel.” Add lighting that is bright and plentiful to illuminate the room for an aesthetic appeal as well as for mobility reasons. Lighting is important if you’re looking to make the basement a living room, playroom, or home office.

Do More for Your Floor
The stock concrete floor or old, tattered carpeting just won’t cut it! Consider installing flooring options that are easy to lay over the concrete. Low priced tile and carpeting are common options that will get the job done without putting a hurting on your wallet. Just like insulation and drywall, adding new flooring can help control the moisture and humidity levels in the basement.
