What to Consider Before a Lower Level Remodeling Project

Posted by & filed under Lower Level Remodeling.

When you are starting to plan your new basement, there are a lot of decisions you will have to make. Titus Contracting specializes in lower level remodeling in Maple Grove, and we have helped countless homeowners like you with their lower level renovations. We have a few suggestions on what you should consider when planning a lower level remodeling project.

Plan the Layout

Even if you are not artistically inclined, draw out some plans for your new basement and the features you would like to have included. For example, if you have always wanted a home theater room, sketch out where you visualize the seats will go, as well as where other aspects of the new room will go, like the screen and projector.

Plan the Purpose

This part of planning your lower level remodeling project goes hand in hand with planning the layout. If you want an entertainment room for your family and friends, and you really want that pool table that you’ve had your eye on for years, you are going to want to include the pool table in your plans. A big item like this requires room so you and your friends have ample space to play in. And you also need to keep in mind that you have to have the space and room to get the pool table into the basement in the first place.

Plan for Moisture

Many of us associate our basements with damp air. This problem can be mitigated with a good sump pump and dehumidifier. You might need to upgrade these two appliances during the lower level remodeling process, so keep that in mind as you are making plans for where your belongings will go. It’s also something to keep in mind for when you are making your budget.

Plan for Light

Many lower levels are underground, and this can present a few challenges when it comes to lighting solutions for your new basement. Thankfully, there are many options out there on the market these days including decorative overhead lights, recessed lighting, track lighting and much more. Lighting like these options can help create a space that feels spacious and airy.

Plan the Budget

You should definitely have a budget in mind for your lower level remodeling project. A remodeling company like Titus Contracting can work with you to make sure your home renovations stay within your budget.
