Basements give us the unique opportunity to design a space that can cater to each client’s needs and wants, that cannot be satisfied elsewhere in the home. Finished basements add square footage in ways that can enhance how you live. Not only can the basement add extra living and entertaining space, it can increase your home value and your home’s energy efficiency. All the way around, every client whom we have helped transform this space, has loved the results…which is basically the realization of their space goals.
Unfinished basements are blank canvases waiting to be transformed. There are so many possibilities when it comes to finishing a basement space. See our list of common themes:

The possibilities are endless when it comes to finishing YOUR basement!
After the space functions are determined and a space plan developed, there are a number of other details to consider. This includes the best lighting solutions to compliment the layout. What paint colors or materials are best to enhance your home. These elements help transform that old dungeon to a space that is somewhere inviting, somewhere you want to spend your time.
Finished basements help increase home values in the long run. When trying to appraise or sell your home, basements can be a huge bonus to a buyer. Unique finished basements also add a wow factor that sets you apart from other homes on the market. Some statistics report that finishing your basement is an investment that can have up to 70% return rate.
