Are you moving to a new, yet small house or you live in an existing small-sized home? Why don’t you think to remodel the basement and expand your living space? If you like the idea, such tips by Bruce Johnson will certainly help you.
Before you indulge in an actual step, you should study the available options and take all decisions.
The place may need insulation, wiring, plumbing, wall frames, drywall, windows or doors. If you will frame the walls, you should create a space to run the electric wires to their outlets and install plumbing, heating vents and vapor or plastic barrier to the foundation concrete walls before installing the wall frames.
You can use your basement to design rarely used or entertainment rooms such as storage spaces, a laundry room, or a playroom; yet, you can still provide such a basement more value using it as a living room with or without a kitchen.
If you can connect your basement to the outdoor garden, it will be a perfect retreat, as you can create a spa bathroom and a seating area in addition to large windows to enjoy the outdoor views.

“Never underestimate the value of lighting,” says Bruce Johnson who tends to use powerful artificial light, especially in the basements with less natural light sources.

If you haven’t the technical skills to install such elements, you should hire a professional to save your money and effort.
