Choosing a layout and design for your basement is the biggest part of the project. You
can not start a remodel or basement finishing project without knowing what the end
result should look like. Copper Creek Basements can help evaluate the space you have
to work with and recommend design choices and how much your layout will cost.
Basement design is important to keep in mind throughout the entire project. Our team
will help keep your design and budget at the forefront of our minds while working on
your home. No matter what you are going to use your basement for, there are some
technical aspects that need to be considered.
Popular Basement Designs
Different basement designs will need different floor plans, plumbing layouts, insulation,
flooring, and more. Each of these elements, if done incorrectly, can affect your
basement’s value and functionality. Here are some other design considerations you
should have in mind before taking on a basement finishing project.
Home theaters need proper electrical, and sound systems, lighting/darkening solutions,
seating, and screens to be functional. These added systems can add to your costs and
may make the timeline of your project longer. Home theaters are great options if you
have kids or like to have get-togethers to see the latest blockbusters.
Gym Or Workout Space:
Installing the proper flooring as well as ventilation is important for a gym space in your
basement. If you are going to be crawling along the floor, dropping weights, and running
on the treadmill, your flooring will need to withstand impact. Basement designs that are
going to be used as home gyms also need ventilation to circulate stagnant air and
reduce mold and sweat odors.
If additional people are going to live in your basement, some design elements you need
to consider are a separate entrance to the apartment, the connection of plumbing and
HVAC from the main house to the basement, insulation, and natural lighting. Living in a
basement apartment usually comes with limited windows or natural light, so keeping
bushes and trees away from the basement windows will make your tenants happier.
Game rooms can require a lot of electricity, flexible flooring, and sound-reducing
ceilings and walls. Playing tabletop games, arcade games, or video games can come
with loud noises and bright lights. Limiting these distractions upstairs is something to
consider in your basement design. You will also want to consider blackout or different
lighting options so it is easier to see and play the game properly.
How Basement Finishing Can Improve Your Home
Basements that are finished and insulated can give you more usable space and
increase the value of your home. Basements can be used for multiple activities at once
to help keep everyone in your home happy.
Finishing or remodeling your basement with quality materials and using a professional
company will increase your resale value when you look to sell your home. Increasing its
value can give you better peace of mind about your investment in a basement project.
