A Basement Does Not Have to be a Basement

Thinking about renovating your basement? It does not need to be complicated. For more information, you are encouraged to visit our website: http://www.planitbuilders.ca/basement-development.html.

When people think of a basement, they usually picture a damp, leaky and poorly-lit space. While this is often a reality, it does not always have to be this way.

We recently came across a wonderful article on Home Designing. (You can find the article here.) This article included numerous pictures of renovated basements. Only, those basements were not your “regular” renovated basements—they were on a completely different level.

Before going any further, let us ask you one question: What are basements used for? While this tends to vary from home to home, they are generally used as utility spaces. People like to store heaters, boilers and other various amenities in their basements.

But does it truly have to be this way? Do basements always have to be damp, leaky and poorly-lit spaces?

We don’t think so, and the Home Designing article certainly proved this.

So let us ask you one more question: What prevents YOU from renovating your basement into a gym? A media room? An office?  With proper planning, your basement could become the room you’ve always dreamed of. It could become a bar, a second living room or even a cozy, sunlit guest bedroom.

Think about it for a moment: Your basement most likely than not makes up a good fraction of your home. If you do not use it correctly, how much space—and of course how much potential—are you wasting? We certainly don’t need to take a look at your basement to know the answer to that question.

However, this could all change today. Visit Planit Builders to see what we can do for you.
