Take Your Home to the Next Level with Lower Level Finishing

Posted by & filed under Home Remodeling, Home Renovation, Lower Level Remodeling.

The den. The man cave. The game room. There are so many better names for the basement, especially after it’s been finished, remodeled and transformed into the room of your dreams. Need a new space to entertain guests, watch the game or work on your home business? Lower level finishing for your St Paul home may just be the solution for you.

If your basement is being used only as a storage area, why not turn that place into “the place” to hang out? From a beautiful home theater, to office space, to an extra bedroom or playroom, there are many ways the lower level of your home can be transformed from wasted to wonderful – and often, in a short amount of time. Titus Contracting specializes in lower level finishing, and we would love to help transform your space.

Lower level finishing and remodeling are some of the best home renovation projects for homeowners looking to get the most bang for their buck. Here are a few more of our favorite reasons to consider this renovation project for your home:

ROI & Budget Friendly

Everyone knows a finished basement is a major plus when searching for a new home. Lower level finishing can add major appeal to your home when it’s time to sell. And, since the basement is already a part of your home, there are no costs associated like with building an addition. The foundation, load-bearing walls, floors and ceiling are all already in place, so that eliminates the need and costs associated with building a new part of your home. You get additional space for you and your family to use at a fraction of the cost.

Another budget friendly reason to finish your basement is to make it more energy efficient and help save on utility bills. We can fix any air leaks or insulation problems as well as put in new, more energy-efficient windows.

Versatility

Lower level finishing is the opposite of one-size-fits all. You could have the entire space made into a home bar and entertainment room; or, section off a home office, create a bedroom for the in-laws or incorporate a playroom for the kids. Really, whatever you can imagine we can design! You can even get that pool table and kegerator you’ve always wanted.

Optimized Space

You might use your basement for storage right now, and chances are, larger appliances like your furnace are down in your basement too. But think of all of that wasted space you and your family could be using! There are so many different and new purposes for your basement when you tackle a lower level finishing project.

These are just a few reasons to choose lower level finishing for your St Paul home! Call Titus Contracting at 952-746-7817 or you can Schedule a Consultation.

Don’t hide your stunning kitchen backsplash behind a bunch of utensils or food storage containers any longer! Get organized with these simple tips:

1. Recycle Old Magazines and Catalogs

Gather all the loose magazines and catalogs floating free around your home and stack them into a neat pile. Then, go through them one by one, setting aside issues you still want to read, and recycle the rest.

2. Declutter the Entryway

You know that one spot or table where you drop everything off as you come home? Give it a little TLC. Put any loose change, junk mail, or other items that may have ended up there in their right place.

3. Organize Your Food Storage

Open up your Tupperware drawer and pull everything out. Match up each container with its lid and toss any leftovers. Next, stack everything up neatly with matching partners located nearby so everything is easy to grab. If you find yourself wishing your kitchen cabinets themselves are easier to organize, it may be time to consider a kitchen renovation.

4. Relocate Those Utensils

The jar of utensils usually located by the stove can get cluttered easily and begin to hide some of the most beautiful aspects of the kitchen. Take everything out of the jar and move what you don’t use very often to a nearby drawer. Put the few utensils you do use frequently back in the jar and allow your backsplash and countertops to shine once again.

5. Inventory Your Bathroom & Laundry Supplies

Start by pulling all of the products out of your shower and place them on the sink. Recycle the empty bottles and move infrequently used items to a drawer or cabinet. Not enough cabinet storage space? This could be another sign you could use a home renovation! More cabinet space can help hide the clutter and make your bathroom look its best.

Next, check your laundry room for any empty bottles and place those in the recycling bin. Put any other items where they belong. Does your laundry room still look cluttered? Additional shelving, cabinetry or sink space could help. Look into home renovation options for these frequently used rooms to create a better looking, more efficient home.

These are just a few of the many things you can do to help declutter your home this spring! If you find during your spring cleaning you could use something more permanent, like a home renovation; give us a call at Titus Contracting!
