Do you find that the living space in your home is cramped and crowded? If you have an unfinished basement, the solution to your space problems is right beneath your feet. Here are some different ways you can upgrade your home with a finished basement:

Man Cave

Escape from the chaos of upstairs living with a comfortable and indulgent man cave. You can have a games area, with tables for pool, air hockey, and poker. Watch the big game on a high-definition LED TV while sitting back in plush leather reclining chairs. Visit your custom wet bar for a quick refreshment in between periods.

Media Room

Whether you want to watch a high-intensity action movie with your buddies, cuddle up with your sweetheart to watch a tearjerker, or spend some family bonding time watching the latest Disney movie, a media room is a must-have. Our team will work with you to design a gorgeous built-in media centre with a projection screen and comfy movie theatre-style seating.

Play Area

If you feel like toys are taking over your living space, having a play area just for kids is a great use of space in your finished basement. All of your kids’ favourite toys, from doll houses to Lego pirate ships and mini sticks can find a home in custom built-in storage cabinets. Create a reading nook or arts and crafts corner to keep kids of all ages engaged and entertained.

Home Gym

Especially in tough Canadian winters, it can be hard to find the motivation to go out the gym. Now you can get in shape without leaving home by installing a home gym in your basement. With slip-resistant rubber flooring and a sound system installed in the walls to keep those workout tunes pumping, there’s no excuse now…nor would you want one!

Income Suite

Did you know your basement can actually make money for you? When you install an income suite, you can quickly recoup the cost of renovation, and even get help with your mortgage payments. Our team can work to design an income suite that is appealing to potential renters and attracts desirable tenants. Whether you want a cozy energy-efficient apartment perfect for the young professional or a chic modern suite that can easily be converted back into living space for your family, the design is up to you. No matter what your needs, you can upgrade your life with a finished basement in your home.
