The Absolute Essentials to Remodeling Your Basement


One of the best and easiest ways to add value to your home is to remodel your basement. Not only does this instantly increase value, but a Denver basement remodel can provide extra living space that otherwise may go unused. For the best Denver basement remodel possible, consider the below tips.

1. Clutter Reduction. Most basements consist of dark areas where items are stored such as extra furniture, decorations, food and supplies, old toys, sporting equipment and other things not regularly used.
Using the basement to store rarely used items can be wasteful and encourage holding onto things unnecessarily, creating clutter. Before starting any Denver basement remodel, clear away items no longer needed to best envision how the space will be used.

2. Denver Basement Remodel Plan. Consider how you can best use the space. For example, there may be a need for an extra room to afford more privacy to a family member or for a specific person or a guest room for visitors. It may also be beneficial to use the space for certain activities for which a basement’s characteristics will offer natural advantages.
For example, the lack of light could be useful for creating a dark room for photography and a studio or home theater. The isolation can also assist with creating a sound barrier for  play areas, teenager hangouts or a studio to practice musical instruments or create music.
In addition, the basement environment provides easy access to heating ducts, water lines, electricity and cooling ducts. Because of this adding a bathroom is much easier than it might be at another location within the house.

3. Basement Designs. Remember that the goal of a Denver basement remodel is to maximize the space. To do this most effectively, aligning with a professional company like Aspen Builders can provide you with technical details that can greatly affect the success of the project.

An interior designer or architect can also assist in getting the most out of the existing space. With careful planning, you can make your goal of having a more useful, comfortable and attractive basement possible.

4. Water Issues. Whether the basement has had flooding or dampness issues in the past or not, it is essential to confirm that any issues are resolved completely, prior to the start of any Denver basement remodel. A finished basement will only be as successful as the preparation and design, as well as the execution and quality of the work involved.
Understand that permanent solutions may take more time than anticipated to implement. This is because sometimes, as work begins, issues that were not realized prior may surface. Therefore, it is good to hire an inspector specializing in foundation or basement waterproofing, such as the professionals at Aspen Builders.
