How to Get the Most Value Out of a Remodel
A basement remodel is an investment that can add value to your home. But, in order to get the best return on your investment, there are several steps you should take before beginning the project.
Here’s what you need to know:
Create a budget and stick to it
Before you begin any renovation project, create a budget and determine how much money you can realistically spend on the project. This will help keep costs down and ensure that you don’t overspend on unnecessary items or materials.
Consider the function of the space
When creating your plan for your basement renovations, think about how you want to use the space long term. Do you want it to be an extra bedroom? A playroom for the kids? A home office? Knowing what you want to use the space for will help determine how much money you should spend on certain materials and features.
Choose energy-efficient windows and insulation
Installing energy efficient windows and insulation in your basement is not only good for the environment, but it can also save you money on heating bills in the long run. Make sure you choose products with a high R-value (the measure of thermal resistance) that will keep your basement warm and cozy.
Consider adding additional living space
If you’re looking to increase the value of your home, adding a separate living space in the basement is a great way to do it. This could be a small apartment or an extra bedroom with its own bathroom and kitchenette. It’s an investment that will pay off in the long run.

Home Theatre /Entertainment Room
Home theatres are a great way to create an inviting and comfortable atmosphere for movie nights with family and friends. A home theatre renovation involves installing a large projector screen, sound system, comfortable seating and other features such as dimmable lighting or acoustic treatment panels that help enhance the viewing experience.
Creating a playroom in your basement allows children to have their own space away from the rest of the house where they can engage in imaginative play or enjoy some quiet time playing with toys. A playroom renovation involves adding adequate storage for toys, comfortable flooring or carpeting, and even a creative wall mural to help spark the kids’ imaginations.
Busy households often need an extra room for those who work from home or need a place to study. A basement office or study space can be great for getting things done in peace and quiet without being disturbed by other household activities. A renovation may involve installing built-in desks, cabinets, and bookshelves.
Do you frequently have guests stay over? Consider turning your basement into a comfortable guest bedroom so you can offer them a comfortable place to sleep. A renovation may involve adding creating a room and an en-suite bathroom.
Bar Area or Wine Cellar
If entertaining is your thing then consider adding a bar area or wine cellar in your basement. This could include anything from seating areas and stools to refrigerators and shelving units to store glasses and liquor bottles.
Turn your basement into your personal gym where you can work out without leaving home! This could involve installing mirrors for dance workouts, installing yoga mats and exercise equipment such as treadmills, bikes, free weights, and more.
Do you have in-laws visiting often? Consider creating a separate suite for them to stay in your basement. This could include a bedroom, bathroom, and kitchenette.
If you’re looking for an extra source of income then consider turning your basement into a rental unit. This would involve renovating the space with all the necessary amenities such as bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchens as well as installing proper insulation and egress windows for safety. You may even need to apply for the necessary permits from the local municipality before you can rent out this space.
